Counter Tops

We just redid our refrigeration, including lids. Unfortunately, this put the spotlight on our counter tops, which are heavily scratched formica. I would like some ideas on replacement or upgrade.
The biggest problem appears to be cosmetic--getting the teak molding off the old formica will be a pain--some of it is curved and if I mess it up, it will be hard to replace. Also, the lids of the refrig are flush, so I need a good way to get a nice crisp edge around the opening for refrig & freezer.
Anyone else done this kind of upgrade? Ideas, techniques, etc?
(current ideas include granite tiles--very heavy and expensive; glue on new formica--hard to get crisp edge around openings),
