Countertop material: granite vs. solid surface (corian) vs. engineered stone (silestone)

farmersdaughter | Dec 26, 200603:55 AM

I am trying to decide between three different materials for countertops. I currently have corian and it has a lot of scratches in it and I am deathly afraid to set hot things on it because a friend had some heat damage to hers. Have never had granite or engineered stone but my research has indicated that either one of them would be better than the corian. Cost will end up being a factor, but until I price them out based on my kitchen measurements I'd love to know if I should eliminate any of these right off the bat or if there is a clearly superior choice among the three.
