For greater cost savings, you can opt to purchase a stainless steel sink that comes with an extended drain board on each side. While this is not really a stainless steel countertop it’s a bargain way to add some stainless to your kitchen design for a lot less money.
Most wood countertops are traditional butcher blocks, but today they are chosen more for their appearance than their usefulness for chopping. These countertops are modern versions of the thick rounds of sycamore that butchers worked on until the 1880s. lengths of hard maple glued together took their place in the early 1900s because they are a stronger, more durable surface.
Next, do a light scrub with baking soda and vinegar using a non-abrasive material or scrub brush in the direction of the grain. Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or a rough kitchen scrubbie to clean stainless steel. Use a clean damp dish cloth to rinse the surface and then dry it with a paper towel or microfiber cloth, also in the direction of the grain. This helps prevent streaking.
