Stainless steel countertops are comprised of wood covered with sheets of stainless steel metal. Stainless Steel Countertops are often used in modern and contemporary kitchen styles.
Stainless steel is considered to be both durable and sanitary. Stainless steel countertops are non-porous so they are easy to sanitize clean, will not stain, and can be cleaned with any type of cleaner. Trivets and hot pads are not necessary on stainless steel countertops because they are heat resistant. The thickness of the stainless steel determines its resistance to damage. The lower the gauge, the thicker the stainless steel will be. 16-gauge is a standard thickness for stainless steel countertops. Industrial kitchens, such as restaurants and hotels, will often use thicker 14-gauge stainless steel for more durability. 20-gauge stainless steel is an option for those who are looking for a budget-friendly stainless steel option, though the thinness of this steel could take damage if heavier items are placed on it. Depending on the thickness, stainless steel countertops can be very expensive often ranging from $75 to approximately $225 per square foot. However, the durability and ease of maintenance makes them a popular choice for those with the available budget.
