Once upon a time corian only came in that off-white color. Mine kinda look like green granite. We did consider granite and other stone when we put in the new counters, but my kitchen is COLD in the winter, I mean frgid, so the thought of stone just would make it more cold.

thanks for all the help guys. after showing him this thread and talking to few relatives, they convinced him that our countertop is likely not glued in and should be easy to remove. still haven't sold him on the butcher block idea yet, but at least he's given up on tile. it may still have to wait, as now we have a wedding to pay for (YAY ). i can agree to put off getting a new kitchen for a bit to get married.

GIven your choices I 'd go butcher block. Personally I'd like stainless steel, but they are quite industrial and don't remain pretty for long. Have slab granite and and impressed with ease of care and durability. Hard, very hard, watch your stem ware!
