Hi CJ,

Now that you have had your Ironstone countertops for awhile, how do you like them? Do you like the look with the seams or have any problem with them?

Cindy:

Love them - no problems, easy to maintain, no stains, no chips. I just had the installer seal the grout and have had no problems. I get compliments all the time on how it turned out. Great for rolling out dough for any number of reasons/baking. Still looks amazing. I use Method and kitchen wipes to clean them as we are fairly rural and we get an amazing amount of dust - may have to invest in an air cleaner!

I can send you new pictures showing them after the year and a half they've been in. Let me know.

Hi CJ,

Thanks for the reply, we are trying to decide on new countertops, and like you we have lots of dust! I am afraid granite would show too much dust and fingerprints.

If you could send a couple of photos, that would be great. I am glad you are happy with the counter!

Cindy

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE my countertops.. My husband and I were building our dream Log home. I went with the "black opal" from www.Getcookinginc.com
You do not use grout, but comes with a smooth caulk that is put into a microbevel. The tiles go from front to back of the countertop, and but completely together. I cannot tell you how happy I am with them. I have "sold" many who have come to tour the house and they have installed the product also. The folks at the company were very helpful, and even gave me a cell phone number to call for questions If I needed it. I was intimidated at first, but when i really pulled it out of the box and started it went so smoothly. The easiest tile i have ever installed, and I have installed plenty, just not on a countertop. I sent them a template of my sink and they cut the holes for the undermount sink and the faucets. I will always no matter where I live install this product.. It is a fabulous price and looks and feels sooo good. I used the slate edge trim package. It will take the heat and does not scratch. I use comet on them for a good cleaning once in a while. I give this product a triple A+. I installed ours in 2006 and now it is 2012. order the sample if your not sure.

I was really searching for them a couple months ago. I kept running into dead ends. I remembered Rick and Marys name, did a search on that and ended up finding Ricks cell phone number. I called him and He now has a garage door business. He said they are no longer. His supplier overseas was hit by the Tsunami several years back, they will not import to him anymore unless he buys large volume, and he was not financially able to do that. Rick said that he was the only one in America that carried this product. So there you go.... Ironstone is a thing of the past now. IF anyone out there is financially able to carry and sell this product again I would be ticked to be a future customer! I will even be happy to help you contact Rick to get the original supplier.

just found this forum by accident and am extemely disappointed to learn that "ironstone " counter tops are no more ... i found them years ago , ordered the black opal sample and tested it with everything ...hot pans , sharp knives, red wine , ketchup & mustard and NOTHING seem to damage them so i put the info and sample into my wish box for my "future kitchen remodel " it's getting close now and i find that they are extinct !!! ARGHH !! has anybody out there found any new suppliers , or have that cell # for the past owner? i'd be willing to pay more for shipping or maybe try to convince a local DIY store to carry this line . Any help would be appreciated , THANKS

I don't get the enthusiasm over what is just unglazed large format tiles????? Lots of one wonder posts make me think the original was nothing more than creative spam.
