Porcelain tile question

OK, we're buying a house with a large kitchen. It isn't my dream kitchen, but for that I think we'd need about $50,000 more dollars. So, I'm getting a ten year old OK kitchen that has loads of counter space.

The counters and backsplash are all porcelain tile. I assume they are original to the house, meaning they would be 10 years old. Here is my question: how heat resistant is porcelain tile. To be clear this is not ceramic tile, but the large porcelain tiles laid with very narrow grout lines.

And, anything else I need to know about this surface? Because I know nothing!

Oh--the grout is gray so at least I don't have to fight icky, yellowing tile grout.
