Where can Granite Certified by DuPont be purchased?
What is the difference between Corian and Zodiaq and Granite Certified by DuPont?
Unlike laminates and solid-surface materials, a hot frying pan has little if no effect on granite's mirror-like finish. The hardness of granite makes it almost impervious to abrasions, stains, and extreme heat. However, if easy maintenance and pattern consistency are most important to you, consider Corian and Zodiaq as alternative products for your kitchen.
