Granite Worktops and Countertops

Granite is a common type of intrusive, felsic, igneous rock which is granular and phaneritic in texture. Granite worktops are incredibly tough and hard wearing and bring a high end feel to any kitchen worktop. This rock consists mainly of quartz, mica, and feldspar. Occasionally some individual crystals (phenocrysts) are larger than the groundmass, in which case the texture is known as porphyritic.

What is Granite

Granite has long been a preferred material for kitchen worktops, thanks to its exceptionally hard-wearing, durable, and unique aesthetic qualities. Granite is easy to clean and maintain, provided some simple guidelines are followed. The granite used in making kitchen worktops is the same natural product as that found in classic building structures and monuments. Formed by the cooling of lava Millions of years ago, it is available in a range of beautiful, naturally occurring colours, from pink and grey, through to blue, brown and black. Although rough in its natural state, the surface of granite can be polished to a smooth, shiny finish. The use of Granite has increased over the centuries owing to the intrinsic strengths it has over other types of stone such as marble. Firstly, granite is highly resistant to weathering. Secondly, it is extremely heat resistant. Thirdly, it is very hard and durable, and does not scratch easily. These characteristics make Granite worktops the sublime choice. Although these characteristics mean granite is ideal for the cut and thrust of kitchen life, it is important to remember that it is a natural product and that certain basic steps should be taken in maintaining granite worktops thus ensuring they remain in top condition.

 

Granite Care Information

Firstly it is essential that a granite worktop is sealed to protect it from stains, and we carry this out in out factory in hastings East Sussex . A granite worktop, like any other worktop, should be cleaned regularly. The best way to clean granite worktops is with soap and water. Secondly, although granite is very unlikely to crack when exposed to high temperatures, it is still advisable to eliminate any possibility of marks and blemishes from hot pans and dishes by always placing a protective mat underneath hot items. Also, when using sharp or heavy objects it is better to err on the side of caution and use a chopping board rather than the worktop itself; although granite is tough, like any natural substance it can contain weak spots that may chip or crack. Finally, any spills should be cleaned up as soon as possible with soapy water, particularly acidic liquids such as wine and orange juice, acid easily stains granite worktops.
