Granite is an incredibly durable stone for countertops and functional use. As granite is porous, it needs to be treated regularly with sealants; in the end it absorbs the least liquid and only really needs to be resealed about once a year. Granite is highly durable. You can place hot pans directly on granite countertops, cut on them, or knead and roll dough without fear of harming the stone. Marble, on the other hand, is very smooth and cool to the touch, making it the ideal surface for baking and preparing pastries. However, it lacks the durability of granite and is more prone to staining if sealants are not regularly applied. We'll help you decide whether or not you should purchase granite or marble countertops!
