Found 23rd Apr 2017
Excellent granite worktop protector found in Tesco Woolwich.

Quite heavy and durable , I used a couple to fit under my subwoofers to
decouple them from the floor. Absolute bargain

Price online shows £14 , could be nation wide but not sure.

Found it a week ago and it has normal white label saying the price , rather
than a yellow one marked as a sale.

Why would you need protection for a granite worktop? Isn't granite meant … Why would you need protection for a granite worktop? Isn't granite meant to be really tough?



I'm probably wrong here, but I interpret it as a worktop protector made from granite

Can't really think of a use for these - you can't cut on them because they will trash your knives.
I was bought one as a gift. Found it too heavy to pick up to wash/rinse. Now use it as a kettle & toaster stand. Not really necessary, and I wouldn't have bought one for doing this, but I do think they look nice on it.
Protect worktop... Destroy ya knives lol
Heat added just for the subwoofer idea. Does it do much to stop sound traveling downwards, or is it just more pleasant the floor doesn't vibrate?
​Luxury bug hotel roof.
But how do I protect my granite worktop surface protector? Use a bit of spare worktop from the shed?
Why can't it be online?
This is exactly what I needed for my speakers, I only hope that it can be found in my store.

Thank you OP

Ha - added heat for the same reason
So really its a big coaster for your speakers cos useless in kitchen and as Roger-the elephant stated above "luxury roof for the bugs". So heavy to move to clean under you just don't !

It's to protect a delicate worktop (e.g. a wooden one) from hot pans, it's not a chopping board.

Not sure about if it stops the sound travelling downwards but definitely stops some of the vibrations and tightens the bass noticeably. I got a quote from a guy that cuts and polishes granite , for the same size he quoted me £90 , it was a centimeter thicker but way too expensive.

I was looking for those for a while, also seen similar slabs over £90 and above, so a bargain .
I intend to use it under fronts as could not find the right spikes (tall enough) for years now and hoping I can use two or three per speaker.
Granite is really hardwearing BUT also brittle.

ie no good for anything in a kitchen.

Yes, that would make sense - but a trivet is lighter.
I don't think anything in my kitchen is at risk of damaging my worktop more than this massive slab of heavy granite....
