What kitchen personality are you? The Foodie

  • 3 minute read
  • Apr 15th, 2022

As a foodie, not only do you simply love eating and take your food seriously – but food shopping brings you joy too; taking time to source artisan products for your larder. There’s nothing quite so satisfying as bringing quality ingredients home to relish cooking in a beautiful and well-designed kitchen.


Some kitchen design can be all about the aesthetics, but the foodie kitchen takes contemplation in function and ergonomics.  Ventilation is key – choosing the right hood for your stove or hob is a priority. A hood that fits the stove size is essential and gas stoves, because they are hotter, require a more powerful hood than an electric or induction hob would.

Similarly, the sink is vital, with bigger generally being better.  Tall taps with hose attachments in deep sinks allow for easy cleaning where large pots and dishes are concerned.  And having a sink in the centre island, or next to a large worktop space, will make all that food prep far easier.  Another factor is having minimal grout line and discreet joins across your work surface – giving you endless scope for many aspects of food prep and culinary creativity.  Grout lines or joints can gather debris and bacteria, – one of the key benefits of our worktops is that the joins are minimal and the in-built microban ® protection means that you’ll have to worry less about nasty bacteria lingering in spots where your worktop meets your hob, or sink, for example.

Microban® is a cutting-edge antimicrobial technology that is built into all etherium® By E-Stone products during the actual manufacturing process.  It lasts for the lifetime of a product and works by slowing down the rapid production of bacteria to keep your kitchen cleaner, for longer.

Trusted tools of The Foodie

First on your list must be a set of top-quality chef’s knives.  Like artists, chefs love their tools and will always have an opinion on the best knife for the job.  What is comfortable for you will take some research but from Huusk to Zelite, the Japanese knife reigns supreme in the kitchen. From chopping to dicing, slicing, crushing, and smashing, a good knife can do it all.

It seems almost too good to be true when it comes to preparing food on our surfaces – but super-light and slim, and at just a quarter of an inch thick they’re tougher than stone, more flexible than wood and come with our manufacturer’s 10-year warranty. Heat, impact, scratch, and stain resistant means that our surfaces are hard wearing and incredibly durable, ready for whatever your menu requires.

Our Portland White selection was inspired by the clean contemporary lines and repurposed decor of an industrial style, perfect for the modern kitchen. Composed of quartz, Portland White combines concrete with the traditional appearance of stone.

With distinctive gold and grey veins and that unmistakably showcase the elegant Italian design, Calacatta adds a chic note to the contemporary kitchen.

If you love a bit of sparkle and shine in the kitchen then White Star is the one for you. Created from a mixture of quartz, recycled glass and mirrors, these elements add a gorgeous shimmer to any surface.

The overall finished look of our work surfaces is a gleaming, diamond-polished worktop that you will be pleased to cook up a storm on.
