A big part of the reason why stone is so durable is that it’s resistant to heat, stains, and scratches. With regular maintenance and care, stone worktops can look just as beautiful today as they did a decade ago.
In many cases, you can place a hot pan or pot directly onto a worktop without causing any damage. Stone has a high heat tolerance:
In addition to heat resistance, stone typically doesn’t stain easily and can withstand scratches from knives. As long as the stone is properly sealed, it should be resistant to damage and stains.
For families that spend a lot of time cooking in the kitchen, the stone is a practical option for a worktop.
The main disadvantage is the high cost. Granite, marble, engineered stone, and other types of stone are more expensive than other worktop materials.
Most worktops will require additional care and maintenance.
Such worktops may also require special cleaners and other maintenance that isn’t common with other countertop materials.
