How to care for ganite counter tops in kitchen??? Sign In/Join 
How careful do you have to be with granite counter tops. I always place a hot pad under hot dishes but can you place a coffee pot or ice tea pot directly on it. I have those sitting on a cutting board now. I am concerned about the heat from any appliances I may use too like a toaster or a griddle. Am I being too cautious? I just don't want to burn the granite but we live here too. Thanks for any help you may give.

I still use a pad or hot plate under hot pans or dishes, but I don't think you have to, just being overly cautious.

Other than that, I just use a granite cleaner and paper towels to clean them.
