It been every bit as durable and stain free in 5 years of normal living and heavy cooking as the honed black granite that it plays against on other surfaces. For some reason I also think it seems to always look nicer and cleaner than the honed granite. And to clean it, you can just use rubbing alcohol which smells so sterile and clean
