Re: Galley counter top material

Corian, marble and granite cannot take a hot pan right out of the oven or off the burner. If you need this capability look at the synthetic granites; stilestone or caesar stone. The color and detail variations are enormous and can be templated to fit the unusual shapes and dimensions of a sailboat. It is incredibly strong and very easy to clean up. It is price competitive with granite and more so if you go looking for decorator granite. The only draw back is its weight, which is only important on a smaller boat like mine.
