Care & Maintenance


  • Wipe all crumbs and debris away with a dry cloth to avoid scratching
  • Clean the stone surface with a mild liquid dishwashing detergent or neutral PH cleaner with warm water and a soft cloth or sponge.
  • Wipe up excess water with a dry cloth to avoid streaking or a film on the countertop
  • Do use trivets for all hot pots and pans including crock-pots or air-fryer appliances
  • ​Always use cutting boards, do not cut directly on the surface.

Do Nots

  • Do not use products that contain a high acidic content, like lemon, ammonia, vinegar, etc. The high acidic content can dull the finish.
  • Avoid contact with harsh chemicals like paint strippers, bleach, oven cleaners, or drain cleaners.
  • Do not use abrasive scouring powders or liquids as these can damage the surface. If you have a stubborn spot that won't come up with water and detergent, you may use Bar Keeper's Friend powder with a soft cloth. Wet the area and gently rub until it comes up, then clean any residue away with water.
  • ​Do not drop heavy objects on your countertop as they may chip or break the stone.
