Here’s Why Even Professional Chefs Are Using This Countertop Material In Their Kitchens


There’s no denying that deciding on a countertop material commands much of any homeowner’s attention when planning the design of a kitchen. After all, it is over these surfaces that we conduct food preparation, cook, and even host our friends and family from. As such, it should only make sense that the material we choose for our countertops be one that is hardy, resilient and high-functioning.

This is where the Dekton by Cosentino surfaces come in. Comprising a sophisticated composite of over 20 raw materials that includes quartz, the mixture is then engineered using the exclusive Sinterized Particle Technology – an innovative ultra-compaction process. The result is a revolutionary ultracompact surface that boasts superior technical properties, such as an excellent resistance to thermal shock and impact, and a high tolerance to scratches and stains.

And it is due to these technical and aesthetic features offered for such a demanding environment that many professional chefs from around the world have opted to use Dekton, as well as many other Cosentino surfaces, in their kitchens. This was demonstrated during the 2019 edition of the annual “World’s 50 Best Restaurants” event, held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre on 25 June.



Dubbed the “Oscars” of the gastronomy sector, Cosentino was present for the ninth year in the row as not only the official sponsor of the event, but as the official worktop partner as well. During the celebration, the top honour of this prestigious list went to Mauro Colagreco’s restaurant Mirazur, which includes Dekton’s Radium countertops and wall cladding in its interior design. In addition to Mirazur, other world-renowned restaurants using Dekton countertops include Mugaritz and DiverXo, which were ranked on the #7 and #75 on the list respectively.



With its participation at the gala, the strong relationship between the leading manufacturer of high-quality quartz surfaces and the world of gastronomy and dining is once again demonstrated, which reaffirms both Dekton’s and Cosentino’s place as the preferred countertop material in the professional kitchens of some of the best restaurants in the world.
