Granite kitchen countertops – Heat resistant, non-porous and durable

Are you looking for granite kitchen countertops in Atlanta? AA Marble & Granite, LLC, has the widest range of granite countertop slabs, giving you the ultimate variety and the best quality at your fingertips.

There are many benefits to choosing granite for your kitchen countertop slabs, with the top three being that this natural stone is heat resistant, non-porous and durable. Here we discuss each aspect briefly.

Heat resistant

A kitchen is full of hot pans, pots, steam and other heated elements. It is not always easy to ensure that hot pans do not touch your countertop and with granite kitchen countertops, you do not have to worry about this. Granite is heat resistant and will not get damaged from your pots, pans, steam or any other heated element in your kitchen. Generally, you do not want to keep hot pans on the countertop but brief moments will not do harm.


A kitchen has to be safe, clean and hygienic. The non-porous quality of granite means that dirt and grime can easily be wiped off your granite kitchen countertops leaving it bacteria free. Cleaning your granite countertop is as easy and simple as wiping it down with mild soapy water or using an over-the-counter granite cleanser from your local store.


Granite is one of the most durable natural stones available on the market and it is much more durable than other kitchen countertop alternatives. No amount of cutting, chopping or other everyday kitchen activity will damage your granite kitchen countertops.
