Is it possible to put a hot pot on a granite, Dekton or quartz surface?

In the case of a granite or Dekton countertop, the answer is yes, but beware that your glass container may burst due to the difference of temperature.

If it's a quartz countertop, you shouldn't put nothing hot on the surface. Heat could cause the resin to change colour permanently.

Maintenance

GRANITE
As granite is a porous stone, it needs to be sealed before use. The sealer we apply before delivery will fill all the pores of your surface and prevent grease and dirt to stain your countertop. We suggest to repeat the application of the sealer every two years. If water doesn't form in droplets on your surfces, you must protect it.
QUARTZ
Quartz is a non porous material thanks to the resin in its composition. To maintain your granite and quartz surface, simply use soft soap and water on a daily basis.
