Let’s first answer some questions you may have on granite countertops:
Firstly, there are two different ways to finish a granite countertop, polished vs honed granite. Polished granite has a higher stain resistance, gives a more shiny appearance and once sealed is no porous. Honed granite countertops give a duller look, however they are more porous and thus easier to stain. Honed granite can also be more expensive. In the polished vs honed granite debate, the only real reason you would pick honed granite countertops over polished granite counters, is for looks. Get in touch with professional granite specialists Tucson via the button below to decide which is best for you.
Can you put hot pans on granite? Yes you can, it is a natural stone and therefore is heat resistant. You can place a boiling hot pan direct onto the surface and it will not burn or sear the countertop. However, this comes with a couple of caveats, the granite countertop should be sealed regularly to maintain this heat resistance. Furthermore, if not sealed regularly, if you keep placing hot pans in the same place repeatedly it may being to stain if not sealed.
Can air fryers crack granite countertops? Granite is not indestructible, its a natural stone so it is possible to crack. The intense heat of a air fryer has been known on very rare occasions to crack the granite counter top. Again, this is rare, but along with the running theme here a well sealed and maintained countertop will help to prevent this. If you know you will constantly subject the granite countertops to heat in certain areas invest in some heat pads. Better to be safe than sorry. In summary on the heat subject, granite can withstand the occasional hot pan with no problems at all.
How often do you need to seal Granite? There is no set rule here, it can depend on many factors. How often the surface is used, the type of granite, how the surface is used, the quality of the seal and so on. Typically, once every one to three years is advised. Always get a professional to seal the countertop, it’s a big investment to make sure to get it done right. Find a professional below.
What can you clean granite with? Granite is a very resistant surface, soap and water will do the trick. If you are in need of a deeper clean every once in a while, check out this specific cleaner available on Amazon here. It also acts as a sealer, whilst not a permeant seal, it certainly doesn’t hurt to give it a top up in between professional seal applications.
How can you tell if granite is sealed? You will start to see the shine come off the countertop when in need of a seal. Another indication is when you are wiping down the granite countertop and the cloth doesn’t glide across the surface as easily, its time for another seal.
Does granite get dirty? Yes, any surface can get dirty, this will just be surface dirt so just wipe off as usual.
Is it possible to chip granite? Technically yes, especially on the overhang. Granite is one of the most durable countertops available, if you bump or ding it, it most likely won’t even show a mark. However, if you was to smash a pan on the overhang it could chip and crack. Why you would do that, I don’t know, but if by mistake you hit it hard, not much in this world is indestructible. Granite countertops can withstand a lot, just don’t beat it with a sledgehammer!
How easily does granite scratch? Same as with chipping, you can use a knife directly on the surface and it should not scratch. Best to use a chopping board in either case.
Can I fit my own granite countertops? Most suppliers will only supply to a professional granite countertop installer. Fitting granite is not an easy job, a granite countertop installer will make sure the granite is fit correct. Why buy a high end product and not fit it correctly?
