Silgranit, the material used to make the Vintera XL 9, is also known for its great robustness and resistance.

You can also splash red wine or hot coffee around with abandon. Your Silgranit sink won’t mind one bit.

Rest assured too that Silgranit can deal with the usual temperatures reached on pots, pans and baking trays when preparing food. This material meets industry standards in heat resistance that assures the product can withstand the usual chores in and around the kitchen sink.
