My sister recently had a major kitchen re-do and included granite countertops. Last night, she took a pot off the stove and looked for a trivet to put the hot pan on. I questioned the need for that, and she's under the impression that granite is for looks but not function. I told her that I think stone is stone - she'll be okay.
I'm not fond of granite, but it was my impression that the reason many use it is because it's heat proof. Is there a coating that can't handle the heat?
I want to tell Sis that the heat's off her, go ahead and stick that pan on the counter!!
Any advice is appreciated.
