Counter Intelligence: The Right Surface for Your Kitchen


*Old Article Counter Intelligence: The Right Surface for Your Kitchen

Good Housekeeping

April 2002 
That counter may look sleek in the showroom, but will it stand up to years of wear and tear? Our Institute home-care experts put these varieties through a series of tests that mimicked common kitchen mishaps: a frying pan scorch, a knife slip and wine and spaghetti sauce dribbles. Our results may surprise you.

New Quartz

The Surfaces
Silestone ($45 to $75 per square foot); Zodiaq ($75 to $100 per square foot)

What You'll Like
Attractive, durable, a cinch to care for. Unlike natural stone, these never need to be sealed.

Test Scoop
Our favorite. In our tests, this material took the heat and still looked brand-new.

Best If
You love the look of granite, but want a surface that's simple to maintain without special products.
