The Consumer Reports magazine rates the synthetic quartz countertops made by Israel’s kibbutz-based Caesarstone Sdot Yam Ltd. the best of 14 materials that were tested.
“Quartz was tops in our tests, whether polished or matte finish. Sharp knives, abrasive pads, hot pots, and most stains didn’t damage it plus it’s easy to maintain and doesn’t require sealing,” according the survey. “Quartz also comes in vivid colors such as Caesarstone’s Apple Martini and Red Shimmer.”
Reality star Kim Kardashian recently gave a big plug for the NASDAQ-listed company by choosing its quartz countertops for her Beverly Hills mansion.
In the Hollywood “keeping up with the stars” crowd, her neighbors followed suit.
Caeserstone now is worth $1 billion and has opened a factory in New Jersey.
