Best Heat-Resistant Countertop Options
When looking for kitchen countertops, one thing to consider is their ability to withstand heat. If you have a lot of pots and pans and like to cook, this feature is especially important. Here are some options that will help you make the best decision.
Granite surfaces are among the most heat-resistant countertop materials available. If a pan is placed straight from the oven onto a granite surface, you can be sure there will be no marks or stains on the granite.
Quartz is resistant to heat as much as granite. However, to prevent the pans from scratching and leaving stains, you may use trivets or hot pads.
Solid-surface quartz countertops are made from layers of acrylic. They are heat-resistant, but cannot endure the same amount of heat as engineered stone countertops. Engineered stone quartz countertops come in a variety of stones. While some can withstand high temperatures, others cannot.
Stainless steel and aluminum countertops are both durable and easy to clean. They can be easily cleaned by special metal cleaning solutions or mild abrasives. You should be careful not to place hot items directly on them.
