Can Oreolan®/Rauvisio® be used as a food cutting surface?

Can you place hot pots and pans on the Oreolan®/Rauvisio® surface?
NO! The reason is the fact that the pots and pans with double bottom (for example Zepter or AMC) have a temperature of over 400 degrees C immediately after being taken from the stove surface, and no standard working surface in use today allows for this without risk of damage. Also, the Oreolan®/Rauvisio® surfaces are not to be used as ironing boards. You should always use a protective surface with hot pots and pans!
