We have the dark brown granite counter tops that were fashionable 20 years ago. They do NOT stain but are truly impressive at breaking glassware when

We had granite counter tops installed in the kitchen that got the Kraftmaid cabinets. We were only there 5 years, but had no increase in broken dishes, and no stains. The granite now is factory impregnated with a sealant that is very good. We have had a granite topped table since that last kitchen re-do, 13 years now, and it's been totally trouble free, other than being
rather heavy to move - between 400 and 500 pounds I'd guess.

Any bad press for granite staining is obsolete news.

IMO, granite may be trendy but it's a poor material for a countertop.
Expect to replace a lot of dish and glass ware.
Because we heard of granite's propensity to absorb stains, we decided to go with manufactured stone. The one we chose was LG Viatera, ordered from

We also had porcelain tile installed on the floor; that was the source of
some broken dishes, but the counters were not.
