Granite is very popular these days, and the price has come down substantially in the past few years thanks to faster and easier ways to cut it. Granite is user friendly and while it won’t scorch from a hot pan, it can scratch. Granite should be sealed once a year to prevent staining.

Prices for granite countertops vary from as little as $35 a square foot to as much as $300. If you shop around, and don’t mind being limited in your selection, you might be able to find the countertop of your dreams at a price you can afford.

  1. I didn’t realize that granite countertops should be sealed once a year. That explains the staining on mine at home! I love, too, that I can place my hot pans on it without any burn marks showing up. Another plus is that it seems like granite is easier and more convenient to clean as well.

    • We’ve had our granite countertops for years, and no problems at all!
      Just remember: You do need to seal the granite every few years.
      Other than that, it’s an excellent choice of countertop.
