Part 2 - The best performing bench top for your Outdoor Kitchen!

Posted by Natalee Chiodo on 10/31/18 5:11 PM

Continuing our series on the best Outdoor Kitchen Benchtops, we’d like to introduce the Dekton range. With its sophistication, modern look and high performance features, it’s definitely one to consider when designing your Outdoor Kitchen.

 So firstly, what exactly is Dekton we hear you ask? Well in non-technical terms it is a new and very advanced surface that is created by replicating a process that occurs naturally in nature. In nature, this process takes thousands of years and is the gradual compacting of natural stone under high temperatures and pressure. Dekton have perfected this process, calling it ‘Sintering’ and it takes merely hours to do, resulting in a very high performing, strong & resistant surface that looks amazing. But don’t take our word for it…keep scrolling...

UV Resistant

Dekton is highly resistant to UV light making it the perfect choice for your Outdoor Kitchen. Fade over time? Absolutely not! Your Dekton bench top will look good as new for years to come! It’s perfect for indoors or undercover as well and rest assured that while the padio or pergola is being built, your new Outdoor Kitchen won’t be degrading in the sunshine.

Scratch Resistant

Dekton is also highly scratch resistant and able to withstand nicks and scratches (although cutting boards are still recommended.) No one wants to tippy toe around the new Outdoor Kitchen. It needs to withstand all the elements…including the human variety…and it certainly does that with ease. You can be assured that your Dekton bench top will look amazing year after year!

Stain Resistant

Well the news just keeps getting better because Dekton also has extremely low porosity! This means even the most stubborn stains like wine, coffee, texta and rust can easily be removed. Dekton also contains no resins and is chemical resistant meaning drips and splashes of your typical household chemicals won’t do any harm. This is probably the easiest surface to clean if you still need more convincing…?

Fire & Heat Resistant

Another great feature of Dekton is that it’s resistant to fire and heat so those pots and pans can be placed directly onto the surface with no fear of damage. That’s right…directly onto the bench with no damage! Hard to believe so many great features are in one product. If it’s the cold you’re worried about then let us assure you that Dekton is also resistant to ice & thawing so go as cold as you like…it’ll still perform!

Colour Stability

Did you know that the colour you choose today for your Dekton bench will be the same colour you’ll be looking at for the life of the product? That’s right, Dekton’s unique manufacturing process gives better colour consistency resulting in a long lasting product that will not fade over time.

Speaking of colours, we are proud to stock 6 colours within the Dekton range including 4 Essentials colours and 2 Premium colours. Each adds style and sophistication to any Outdoor Kitchen.
