Marble vs.granite for rolling out dough

13 years ago

Hi all,

I'm new to the cooking forum and really enjoying it. We are about to start our remodel and I have an opportunity for a 20x24 moveable 'island' (not my main island or workspace) which depending on the answers I get back I will put a marble or granite top. I like to bake and have heard and read about how good marble is for rolling out dough but have never had the opportunity to try it. My question - why is marble better than granite for rolling out dough? Is marble only good for pastry or any type of dough. If there is already a thread that answers this question I would appreciate it someone could point me in that direction - my searching did not find it,

thanks so much for your help.
