Durability of Glass
We know glass breaks so the first thing that comes to most people’s mind is the durability of the glass. The good news is that glass countertops have as much endurance as most man-made materials. Next, glass is naturally heat resistant so you can put a hot pan on it but for safety reasons, use trivets or hot pads. Additionally, if you select a cast texture, it hides dirt, fingerprints, and small scratches. When you shop for your countertops, be sure to ask about these features.
