It will not chip, crack or scratch with normal kitchen usage. It is naturally heat resistant and will not scorch when it comes into contact with hot objects.
The color of the granite is also consistent throughout the stone, so the color of your countertop will not change over time. The non-porous surface won't absorb liquids and prevent the growth of bacteria, making it a very sanitary surface for kitchens.
