As the holiday season approaches, baking becomes an activity done regularly, whether making pastries for the family or baking cookies to indulge a sweet tooth. Countertops come in handy when baking, and you need to have a baking-friendly countertop. Quartz countertops are some of the most pastry-friendly countertops.
Whether you are a seasoned and professional baker or a self-taught and hobbyist baker, quartz countertops offer one of the best surfaces to do your baking. There are many reasons why quartz countertops make awesome holiday baking surfaces. As the holiday season approaches, here is what you need to know about holiday baking with quartz countertops.
Cool Countertop Surface
Quartz countertops maintain a cool temperature even when the oven is fired up and running. The ability of quartz countertops to maintain a cool temperature even when the oven is heated is an advantage to every baker because it means that you only melt the butter when you want to, and it won’t melt by itself. Quartz countertops being able to keep cool means that the time it takes to cool your cookie dough is shortened, and you can easily cut them into desired figures and shapes faster.
Acid Resistance Quality
For bakers that have a knack for lemon bars, quartz countertops are the best option. Being resistant to spills and acid in foods such as lemon or red wine, quartz countertops gives you the freedom to make any lemon bar or acid-based pastries without the fear of what will happen to your beautiful countertops. The acid resistance quality of quartz ensures that even if you spill acidic foods and liquids on them during baking, they still maintain their look and functionality.
Heat Resistance Quality
Quartz countertops have heat resistance quality which means you can put hot trays from the oven on them. However, make sure that you trivet the quartz countertops. Quartz countertops have a good heat resistance quality, but when exposed to too much heat regularly, the quality of their surface gets compromised, which is why you need to invest in a trivet.
