Hobs & Cooking Areas

Hobs and Cooking Areas

Excessive heat can damage Solid Surface countertops so pans straight off the hob or casserole pots straight from the oven should not be put directly on to the worksurface.  We suggest protecting vulnerable areas with a trivet or set of Hot Rods.

Splashbacks Behind Hobs

Corian, HI-MACS or Krion splashbacks are a practical choice behind cooking areas but can be damaged by scorch marks and, in extreme cases, heat may cause joints to fail.  End users must not push their pans all the way back to the upstand nor allow flames to play onto the back splash.  We recommend that designers leave 50mm behind an electric hob and 125mm behind a gas hob.

Recessed Hobs

Recessed hobs are possilbe in Solid Surface due to the accuracy of our CNC machining.
