The commercial kitchen is the heart of any commercial foodservice establishment. It’s where all of your hard work and preparation goes into creating delicious, homemade meals that can be served to customers in a timely manner. The commercial countertop you choose will have an impact on how much time it takes for your cooks to get their job done. The commercial countertop material you choose should be durable, easy to clean, and most importantly; safe. Learn more here.
Commercial countertops are designed to maximize efficiency, minimize cleaning time and provide an upscale look that will impress your customers. The two commercial countertop materials that are most commonly used in commercial kitchens today include stainless steel commercial countertops and granite commercial countertops. Both options offer durability, low maintenance requirements, ease of installation/removal, affordability, and style… which is why choosing between them can be so difficult.

A commercial stainless steel kitchen countertop is designed to be corrosion resistant. Stainless steel commercial countertops are stronger than other metals, which makes them more durable and less likely to bend or warp over time. This can save you money because you won’t have to replace your commercial stainless steel counters as often as granite ones.
Granite resists staining, requires very little upkeep, and will not warp as wooden commercial counters do over time. This makes them ideal if you want your commercial kitchen countertops to last forever! Unfortunately, this durability comes at a price; commercial granite must be polished every year with an impregnating sealer applied after polishing.
