Steel kitchen countertop


I'm thinking of a steel kitchen countertop, something like that: http://en.uk.allconstructions.com/po...le/236#article

It looks gorgeous, but I'm afraid it may be problematic to use it. Does anyone have any experience to share?

They are standard in restaurant kitchens and take that abuse so you should be fine.

Positives are that they are stain resistant. Negative is they scratch pretty easy.

My thought though ... if you love the look ... go for it!

It sure looks great. But I guess it would scratch in no time and start to look real bad with normal use. You will need to make sure you maintain it well.

Steel kitchen countertop


Ayuh,.......

Back when I was in the 8th grade,.. I worked in the School Kitchen,..... SSteel counters,+ work surfaces Everywhere you looked.....
After throwing pots,+ pans,+ trays on it for a couple of hours a day,...
Then wiping it down at the end of the day,.....
It would look Exactly the same as it did the day before,.......And the day before That,.. etc.... For Years,+ Years......

SSteel is a beautiful metal,......
It's an awfully Hard surface,+ even Harder to scratch...... If it Is scratched,... It's easily brushed back out.........

The "the glossy lacquered doors in the new metallic red colour" will have Long been repainted to something different,.......

Before the SSteel counter top is Starting to Look Bad...............
