The following information should be observed for daily use:
Placing burning cigarettes on the melamine surface causes surface damage. Always use an ashtray.
Melamine surfaces should not be used as a cutting surface, as this can also leave cutting marks on highly resistant melamine surfaces. Always use a cutting board.
Placing hot cooking utensils such as saucepans and frying pans directly from the hob or oven onto the melamine surface should be avoided, as, depending on the heat exposure, a change in the gloss appearance or damage to the surface can arise. Always use heat protection.
Spilled liquids should always be wiped or cleaned up immediately since extended exposure to certain substances can change the gloss level of melamine surfaces. Especially in the areas around cut-outs and joints, spilled liquids should always be cleaned up quickly and thoroughly.
