Help! Which countertop material to choose!
My family is HARD on countertops in terms of exposure to stain-inducing foods. We drink lots of tea, and live off of from-scratch Indian food, where ladles and spoons covered in turmeric set down on the countertops are a daily occurrence. In all of my research, it looks like granite stains, quartz stains, marble is soft and stains, formica stains, corian is just ugly, and more modern materials such as stainless steel or zinc won't go we because we have a traditional Spanish kitchen.
What is a workhorse of a countertop material that is stain, heat, and scratch, resistant, and is virtually maintenance-free??
