How do I care for our silestone kitchen worktops?

We all know that Silestone quartz worktops are the toughest worktop material that need very low on maintenance, homeowners should be aware of the basics of caring for them, so that they can last them for years.

Silestone quartz can be a great choice for kitchen worktops, with its wide range of color and design choices, and the flexibility to be shaped to fit into just about any design. Silestone is one of the earliest quartz surfaces that was manufactured, and continues to be among the most popular choices in quartz. It's non-porous, heat and stain resistant and highly durable, making it one of the toughest materials that money can possibly buy.

Caring for Silestone worktops

  • Don't take resistance for granted -While Silestone is highly resistant to scratching, heat, stains, and chemicals, they aren't foolproof of such impacts. Intense heat, acidic foods, abrasive chemicals, etc.
  • Don't replace cutting boards with your Silestone worktop -Silestone is tough, and is built to withstand kitchen abuse, and you'll have to be very neglectful to cause it to damage.
  • The importance of routine cleaning -Routine cleaning of your Silestone can keep it shining, and at its best. And, cleaning Silestone is a matter of a few minutes a day only.
You may also come across a popular Micro-ban treatment, which is essentially an anti-bacterial treatment for Quartz stones. For more information on Silestone kitchen worktops in London, such as Silestone lyra and more, visit us at Silestone Quartz Kitchen Worktops London

My cat has been strangely sitting in the one place on the kitchen worktop ow for 4 dys

Presumably the cat has left the worktop for toilet breaks but has returned there each time.

If the cat has been eating and drinking normally and seems contented there are unlikely to be any health concerns especially if the cat can be distracted by playing. If the answer to any of these is no it might be time to be concerned.

Cats can be inscrutable. I am wondering if it is an indoor cat that never goes out. I am wondering if it is a male or female cat. Perhaps that spot of the worktop is an ideal vantage point to watch the local competition, especially if the scent of mating is in the air. It would be somewhat confusing for an indoor cat and the significance of such scents and sounds aren't entirely lost on a neutered cat.

It is just possible that spot on the worktop has an appliance or something underneath it making it a warm place to sit.

I hope this helps a little.

That's a normal mitre slot distance.
You may need to re-align the jig depending on whether your saw is a left or right tilting saw.
You can download instructions for your jig that tell you how to do so here.
Otherwise, I can only say that I have had the same question, and can only think that the jig was designed with the idea that you would screw your own backing plate against the face of the jig, to hold pieces in place or back them up as they passed over the blade, and for that reason the face is so far from the blade. (But I think I was using the jig on a powermatic saw at the time.)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

How do i get a nice finish on the end of my worktop using a worktop jig ?

i have this router and it is the nicest one i have ever used. setting up a jig take time and if you are only making a straight cut then put a straight edge along your top and clamp it down. you only need the distance from the roller on your bit to the back endge of the router fence. set the straight edge that distance from the front of your top. I suggest tryinng it on a scrap piece of wood to make sure the distance is exact and the profile being cut doesnt need adjusted

I have a join in my new laminate worktop and it has lifted at the join I believe it may be the glue used but I need to get the raised piece back down any help would be appreciated

If the lifting has been caused by water ingress then you have to dry the top and leave for a couple of weeks. If it returns to flat, then seal with translucent mastic along the joint to prevent future water ingress.
