Granite is a popular choice for kitchen counters. It’s heat and scratch resistant. However, it’s porous so it can stain. Be aware of things that are not granite-friendly including wine, mustard, oils, and acidic foods like lemons and vinegar. To help keep it looking great, granite must be sealed.
Even though the stone is heat-resistant, hot pots can scorch the sealant (depending on which you use) leaving a stain. Use trivets and hot pads under pots & pans.
