Soapstone is a natural stone very popular for its durability and density. It is a soft material and can be easily scratched but can be easily sanded and enhance with mineral oil.
* Soapstone will not burn. Stop worrying about setting a hot pot or pan down on you soapstone counter top or fumbling with hot pads. Move your cookware freely from the cook top or oven directly onto your soapstone counter tops, without ever scorching or burning your soapstone.
* Soapstone will not stain. You only need to treat it once in awhile with a special mineral oil to enhance the natural darkening process all all soapstone goes through.
* Soapstone will not harbor bacteria. As the densest natural stone counter top, soapstone is the safest stone counter top for your family. It is the only natural stone countertop that does not require a chemical sealer.
* Easy to clean. Soapstone is siliceous, meaning it is unaffected and unharmed by acids contained in everyday items like wine, lemons, or vinegar. You won’t need to purchase special cleaners, either. Any household cleaner does the trick!
