Caesar Stone Countertop Performance

VS

Sile Stone Countertop Performance

Pretty much no difference between the two quartz countertop options

Both Silestone and Caesarstone are made of engineered quartz that are extremely hard, durable, and resistant to scratches and stains. Though hard and durable, both cannot handle extremely hot cookware being placed directly on countertop surface. They can incur “thermal shock” and may crack. And due to resins in the formulation of the mixture, hot pans or pots can leave a burn mark on the counter.

So is there any difference between Caesarstone & Silestone?

Warranty, price, reputation on service or customer satisfaction, and then finding the specific color or pattern you want… that’s pretty much it. Regarding the warranty, are you really going to live in your house for 25+ years? Current trends say no. And if you think you are going to want the same countertop and interior design style in 25 years, good luck with that too.

All in all, if you like paying 15%-20% more for something so you can humble-brag to your friends, you go right ahead and do that. Cheers!
