Question Heat and granite

Does anyone know if and how high temp that black granite can handle? ie; a pan right out of a 450 oven. TIA!

I have placed hot pots (400 degrees) directly on my granite (both Uba Tuba and Kashmir Gold) and there has been no issues.

First ... I would ask the people you're going to get the granite countertop from. Mainly, because there is uaually a "limited warranty" ... and they will be able to tell you what temp is within "normal useage" range so that you're not abusing the countertop (aka voiding the warranty).

Second ... can your pan handle going from a hot oven directly onto a cold slab of granite without warping? Pyrex, ceramic, or Corningware could shatter ... thinner metal pans could warp.

It may be that you will do more damage to your pan than the countertop!

Thanks fellas! I hadn't thought about the pans Mike, thanks for the heads-up!

Uba Tuba is pretty close to ours, Black Galaxy is what we have. [Black with copper flakes]

I guess I will just have to keep using pot holders as trivets as my pans are worth a small fortune in their own right.

Thanks again!
