Why Quartz Countertops are Great if you Love to Bake

Design choices are an important part of making your house a home, especially in the kitchen, where cooking and baking is the main priority. When choosing a countertop, it is important to consider more than just looks. We’ve got the details on why a quartz countertop is the best choice for a baker.

Temperature Control

Whether you’re baking pies, cookies, or bread – there is always dough to roll out. With quartz countertops, the counter temperature is always cool, which keeps ingredients from melting, crusts crispy, and makes it easier to mold and cut dough. An extra benefit is that quartz countertops are not chemically sealed, so you don’t have to worry about your ingredients or dough touching any chemicals.

Not Porous and are Easy to Care For

Quartz countertops are not porous, which means it resists stains much better than granite and marble. For bakers, who typically prepare food directly on their counters, this means you will likely have an easy clean-up, whether you have spilled wine, butter, or flour. This also means there are significantly less places for bacteria to reside, making your countertops remarkably sanitary! Cleaning your quartz countertop is an easy feat, simply use a wet cloth to it wipe down.

Extremely Durable

Quartz is also very durable, and resistant to heat and scratches. No matter what, we recommend using potholders and cutting boards – but the occasional slip up will not result in burns or scratches! Regardless, the consistent use of pots, pans, rolling pins, baking sheets, and mixers is no problem for a quartz countertop!

Mix of Real Stone and Resin

Quartz is made from real stone and resin, which makes it more tough and resilient than most other stones. Because quartz is so durable and is made from recycled material, it hardly ever needs to be replaced! Many choose countertops based on looks and feel, so consider quartz when making your decision!
