Laminate was a popular countertop material during the 1960’s and 1970’s. This material is made of layers of paper and melamine resin. It can mimic patterns such as marble, metal, wood, fabric and leather.
However, laminate is subject to damage if it is abused. Hot materials such as pots and pans can easily burn laminate, creating burn marks or in extreme cases, holes if set on the surface. Knives can also inflict damage, leaving scratches. Using a cutting board on laminate surfaces is always a good idea to minimize the chance of this happening.
