Stainless Steel is another eco-friendly kitchen countertop option you could opt for. It’s a high quality material that is often used in major restaurants. Stainless steel won’t stain, is easy to clean when you use a special stainless steel cleaner, and it’s heat resistant.
Finishes and Styles: Stainless steel worktops are available in regular finishes, as well as brushed finish or reverse hammered surface. Beautiful custom-polish finishes with unique appearance are also available.

Benefits: The greatest benefit would be that you’ll be feeling like a professional chef in your new stainless steel kitchen! 🙂 It’s also easy to match with your pots and pans, and your appliances. The problem with stainless steel is your fingerprints and watermarks, but a little bit of effort can go a long way to keeping it looking great.
Cons: Stainless steel can show watermark stains unless you clean it with a special stainless steel cleaner once or twice a week. Abrasive cleaners should not be used as they could harm the surface. Stainless steel is relatively costly compared to other countertop materials.
