Granite on Ikea Cabinet Base?

I am thinking about getting the below Ikea base cabinet to slide into a nook.

I would then like to add a slab of granite on top (about 70 lbs).

Is this base cabinet by itself strong enough to support a slab of granite and more stuff on top? Or is it meant to be used in conjunction with something else?

I think the cabinet should be fine on it's own. You could add a thin layer of plywood on top, but likely not required.

70lbs is not that heavy. It should be fine as long the base is put correctly.

Yes you can do it no problem. It’s strong/sturdy.

It's not a problem. The base is anchored to the wall anyways
