Do you need hot pads on granite?
In this manner, do you need to use a hot pad on granite?
Granite is resistant to heat but it is still recommended to use hot pads or trivets instead of putting your hot dishes from the oven on your countertop. It's best to avoid anything that could damage the surface of the countertop.
Secondly, does heat damage granite? Granite counters are heat resistant and can withstand the heat of hot pots and pans without damage. Impact from a heavy object may chip granite but heat from anything short of a blowtorch will not affect your countertop. Dark colored granite countertops are harder than light colored granites.
Beside above, can I put a hot pan on granite?
Granite – No. While brief encounters with a hot pan won't hurt your granite countertop, use of a trivet on a regular basis is recommended. Quartz – Yes, however, like granite, if you continuously put hot pans down in the same place on the counter it could cause discoloration over time. It's preferable to use a trivet.
What should you not put on a granite countertop?
Vinegar, citrus fruits, soft drinks, and products like lotion, nail polish, and perfuse can eat away at the surface and seal on your granite. These items may stain your countertop permanently. Be sure to use cutting boards, coasters, and clean up any spills right away.
