Kitchen Countertops / September 5, 2018 / Edward Taylor
Disadvantages: This surface will either keep you busy or cause you to embrace its timeless patina. It’s softer and more porous than granite, meaning it scratches and stains easily. Acidic foods cause surface etching (though the appearance of the etching can be lessened with a honed finish).
Bio-Glass, another recycled glass countertop material with Cradle to Cradle certification, has an ethereal, translucent appearance, as it’s made of 100 percent glass. As with all glass-based counters, it’s not knife friendly, so keep your cutting boards handy.
