Granite Countertop Pro’s for Derby, KS | Questions? Call (316) 440-7415
Which Countertop Is Most Heat Resistant?
As far as heat resistance goes, granite is far superior. Since granite is a natural stone, you can pretty much put anything on it without damaging it. Quartz is an engineered product, so it has a heat tolerance safety zone of up to 425 degrees.
Can You Put A Crockpot On Quartz Countertop?
Crockpots are not going to injure, stain or burn your quartz countertop. Most crockpots have legs or stands, and if you take the inner crockpot out and rest it on the table top, as long as it’s not over 400-425 degrees, you are safe.
How Do You Get Tea Stains Out Of Quartz?
Tea doesn’t stain quartz. If you have a stain and think it is tea, chances are likely that it is from something else.
What Kind Of Sink Is Best For Quartz Countertops?
Any kind of undermount sink, meaning it is mounted underneath the quartz and not on top of it. It ends up with a smooth zero edge in the sink, so wiping into the sink is easy and clean and neat.

About Derby, KS
For many millennia, the Great Plains of North America were inhabited by Native Americans. From the 16th century to the 18th century, the Kingdom of France claimed ownership of large parts of North America. In 1762, after the French and Indian War, France secretly ceded New France to Spain, per the Treaty of Fontainebleau.
In 1903, the city incorporated with the name El Paso, but the city remained largely a rural community until after World War II.
The aviation industry had begun its growth in Wichita during the 1920s, and when the demands of the war required more airplanes, businesses such as Boeing, Cessna and Beechcraft flourished. Boeing was located a few miles north of the city, which provided a close place for workers to live. Throughout the Cold War, Boeing maintained military contracts and kept jobs nearby. In 1952, the Air Force took over Wichita Municipal Airport and founded McConnell Air Force Base between Wichita and Derby. Many airmen found homes in Derby when space on base became occupied. From 1950 to 1956, the city population grew from 432 to approximately 5000 people.
In 1956, the city name was officially changed to Derby.
