BETACRYL® and stains.

BETACRYL® is a non-porous material and therefore does not absorb the liquids with wich it may come into contact. Therefore stains can be only superficial.

If you need to pour hot liquids directly into the sink bowls, do open the cold water tap too.
Furthermore, use always appropriate size pots on hob burners and place them always at the center. Should the pot come out of the hob, the surrounding surface may lose his glossy aspect.
