A kitchen worktop is not only used a lot, the main thing is that it has to endure a lot. When choosing the right worktop, it is therefore important to consider various factors - and not just go by the look of the worktop. The Rotpunkt Küchen range includes kitchen worktops made of wood, solid-core HPL, granite and ceramics. The properties of each of these different materials is explained in detail in the following.

Solid core HPL
A solid core kitchen worktop is optimal for anyone who needs a highly robust worktop material.

Solid core worktops are also easy to care for, resistant to solvents, durable, and highly resilient. HPL solid core worktops are available in thicknesses of 10 and 20 mm.
A granite kitchen worktop is the right choice if you want to use natural products in your kitchen. Depending on its place of origin, granite material can have a variety of different colours and structures. The material features natural stains and small hairline cracks.

A ceramic kitchen worktop consists of a mixture of clay, binders and pigments that are pressed together under high heat and pressure. An extremely robust kitchen worktop material, ceramic is available in many fashionable colours. Furthermore, ceramic has an impressively high resistance to both heat and stains.
