Solid wood worktops have the benefit of being solid all the way through however, as with other worktop surfaces, we strongly recommended the use of chopping boards to prolong its life as sharp blades can mark the surface and very hot pans placed straight on to the worktop can leave scorch marks.

Another consideration when choosing a work surface is your choice of sink. Solid wood worktops are ideal for under mounted sinks or Belfast sinks which are not suitable for laminate worktops.
