Heat & ChemicalsDovaé withstands heat better than ordinary surface materials. However, all solid surface will expand and contract under extreme temperature changes, which can result in scorching or cracking. To prevent such damage it is recommended that you always place frying pans, hot pots and any heat-generating appliances on a hot pad or trivet with rubber-tipped feet.
