"Consumer Reports" gave the synthetic quartz countertops made by Caesarstone Sdot Yam Ltd. (Nasdaq: CSTE) the highest marks in a new report on 14 materials.
"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," says "Consumer Reports", adding, "Quartz also comes in vivid colors such as Caeserstone's Apple Martini and Red Shimmer."
"Consumer Reports" cites a recent study by the National Association of Home Builders, which found that granite is still among the most desirable or must-have kitchen features. "It performed similarly to quartz in our tests and new suede and leathered finishes skip the high sheen and offer a softer look," it adds.
