Granite natural stone, granite countertop is one of the most common and preferred countertop materials because it’s solid, durable, and long-lasting. As it’s natural stone, you can be sure that no two pieces of granite will look the same, so you’ll definitely own a one of a kind centerpiece in your kitchen. Expect granite table top to be very heat-resistant, up to temperatures hotter than your stove. However, that doesn’t mean you should place hot pans straight from the stove and onto the countertop without a trivet. It’s also quite the hardy material—it’s difficult to unintentionally break, scratch, or crack.
