Soapstone slabsNo countertop material is 100% indestructible, but soapstone countertops come pretty close. Despite being a natural stone that is quarried from the earth, soapstone is virtually nonporous. If your kitchen is a busy place, with cooking, family projects, and entertaining, you’ll appreciate soapstone countertops because they are extremely resistant to stains, heat, and even acidic liquids like vinegar or tomato sauce. The natural gray shades are complementary to any decor.
