Stainless Steel Sink Care and Maintenance
- Stainless steel sinks are made from the highest quality 18-gauge 304 series alloy stainless steel, with 8/10 chrome-nickel content. Stainless steel sinks are extremely durable, rust-free, and most importantly, hygienic.
For General Care & Cleaning:
- After each use, rinse thoroughly. To minimize mineral deposits or water spotting, wipe the sink dry with a clean, soft cloth.
- Avoid any abrasive cleaners such as steel wool or scrub pads, as this will dull the finish.
- Avoid having household cleaning agents such as bleach sit in the sink, as this may damage the finish.
- Stainless steel does not rust; however, use of appropriate stainless steel sink cleaning agents is recommended for removing various surface residues.
- Scratches are normal in any sink material. With regards to stainless steel, most minor scratches can be softened with Soft Scrub®, a Scotch Brite™ pad, and deep cleaning agents such as Comet. Rub across the entire surface and rinse thoroughly.
- Different contaminants such as dirt, dust, and soil will vary greatly in the effect, appearance, corrosive probability and ease of removal. While some may be easily removed, others may require specific cleaners for effective removal. Frequently warm water with or without a gentle detergent is sufficient. Next in line are mild non-scratching abrasive powders such as typical household cleaners including: Bar Keepers Friend®, Flitz®, Gordon's Miracle Shine® and ShinySinks Plus®. All of these products are available at most grocery and hardware stores and it is recommended to follow the cleaning instructions on the product.
- Do not use abrasive cleaners to clean your stainless steel sink. Items such as steel brushes, steel wool and scrub pads will
tarnish the finish and make the sink look dull. These items should be avoided as they may leave particles imbedded on the
surface which can lead to rusting.
- Do not let household cleaning products such as bleach sit in your sink for a long period of time as it will damage the finish of your sink.
- For minor scratches, combining a wet Scotch Brite™ pad with a cleansing agent such as Flitz® will soften the appearance of scratches and disparities. Please rub the agent with the "grain" of the existing finish and continue to rub across the sink's entire surface. Rubbing against the grain or in one spot will produce poor results. Once the rubbing process in completed, the sink should be rinsed with clean water and towel dried.

- Bar Keepers Friend ®

What is DuraLosa™ Sinterted Stone?
DuraLosa™ is made up of natural materials including clay, feldspar and other natural minerals and pigments. The manufacturing process applies 5,000PSI of pressure at 2200F degrees which sinters and fuses the particles together.
What are the advantages of DuraLosa™ Sintered Stone surface countertops?
A high performing surface, DuraLosa™ is non-porous preventing unwelcome germs, bacteria and mildew. It does not require sealing, conditioning or polishing and is highly scratch, stain, heat, impact and water resistant. DuraLosa™ is 100% eco-friendly and is UV resistant.
What DuraLosa™ Sintered Stone surface products are available?
Each DuraLosa™ slab is fabricated into a variety of design applications. DuraLosa™ is available in 12mm (1.2cm) thickness and comes in a slab size of 125”x59”.
How do I care for my DuraLosa™ Sintered Stone surface countertop?
Use a microfiber cloth to remove dust from the surface. Clean your DuraLosa™ countertop daily if necessary. DuraLosa™ countertops can be washed with warm water to which a detergent can be added, used in the dose recommended by the manufacturer. Rinse with warm water and dry with a cloth or similar. Any liquid spills, fruits, vegetables, or other foods should be wiped up and cleaned with soap and water.
Is DuraLosa™ Sintered Stone scratch resistant?
Because DuraLosa™ is made up of natural materials and is manufactured using extreme heat and pressure, the surface is highly scratch and impact resistant. However, as with any surface, sudden impact, excessive force/pressure, or misuse can damage the stone surface.
Can you cut directly on the DuraLosa™ countertop?
Although DuraLosa™ is highly resistant to scratches, it is always recommended to use a cutting board to prevent any dulling of the surface or your knives. Using a cutting board will also prevent metal knife stains on the countertop surface.
Can hot plates and pans be placed directly on the DuraLosa™ countertop?
While DuraLosa™ sintered stone can withstand heat, we still recommend the use of hot pads or trivets when using cooking units such as electric frying pans, crock-pots, or toaster ovens. Prolonged exposure to heat can damage your DuraLosa™ countertop, and such damage is not covered by warranty.
Is DuraLosa™ color consistent?
DuraLosa™ sintered stone is made using natural materials and variences in color, pattern and shade are common and normal, as they are in other stone products. The 15-year warranty does not cover color variance and the DuraLosa™ countertop will not be replaced for these unique, inherent traits.
Will my DuraLosa™ countertop have seams?
DuraLosa™ is not a seamless product; seams are generally visible. Inspection for color coordination across seams and multiple pieces is strongly recommended. The exact number of seams in a countertop will depend on the shape of the countertop and whether or not you specifically request fewer or no seams. Seam placement is at the discretion of the fabricator. Please note that requests for fewer or no seams will increase the square footage units that must be purchased, thereby increasing the price. Our DuraLosa™ certified fabricator installer can show you where seams will be placed on your countertop.
Will the small sample piece I have match my countertop once it’s installed?
Variance in color, shade and pattern is an inherent trait expected of the Sintered Stone product. Samples are cut from large DuraLosa™ stone slabs and only represent a limited portion of the actual stone. Please refer to samples only as a general indication of a particular color’s design pattern, aesthetics, and hue. Samples are not guaranteed to be an exact replica of DuraLosa™ slabs and may vary from the actual, installed product.
Will dark colors require more maintenance?
All dark colors of any Sintered Stone material require more maintenance. Under ordinary use darker colors will show dirt, dust, rubs, fingerprints, and watermarks more readily than lighter colors patterns. Naturally these colors require more care to maintain their appearance.
Can I place food directly on my DuraLosa™ countertop?
Yes, given that it is non-porous, DuraLosa™ countertops are very hygienic as it avoids fungus or other bacteria.

It’s not advisable to use waxes, oil soaps, impregnating agents or other treatments (hydro-oil repellent) on the product because its application is not necessary. Some of the detergents currently on the market contain waxes or polishing additives that after several washes can leave an oily film on the surface.
- Heat – DuraLosa™ countertops are designed to be resistant to heat and can withstand exposure to normal cooking environments for brief periods of time without being damaged. Although DuraLosa™ countertops withstand heat better than most surfacing materials on the market, all surfacing materials, including sintered stone, can be damaged by extreme temperature changes, whether prolonged or sudden. Please use trivets and hot pads when placing hot skillets, pans, crock-pots or other heat generating kitchenware on the surface.
- Scratches – although DuraLosa™ countertops are resistant to scratches, cuts, and chipping, cutting directly on the sintered stone surface should be avoided. Using cutting boards and taking care not to drop or move heavy objects on the surface will help to ensure long-lasting beauty.
