Solid surface is approved by the National Sanitation Federation (NSF) for meeting food preparation standards in both food and splash zones. It is non-porous and therefore will not support the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria.
Solid surface is moderately resistant to heat. This means direct exposure to high temperatures will likely damage the surface but scorch marks can easily be removed by the consumer. Solid surface’s inconspicuous seams are also potential heat hazards and the use of a cutting board or other heat displacement device is recommended when using a crock-pot. It is also recommended to use trivets or hot pads to protect the surface.
Due to solid surface’s non-porous surface it will not stain and this has been extensively tested with a variety of substances from iodine to permanent marker.
