Soapstone islands make a practical and beautiful addition to any kitchen. The Soapstone can have many beautiful veins or a non veined black appearance. Never worry about heat issues, make the island your baking center. Place hot pots and pans directly on the soapstone island top. Not to worry. Soapstone absorbs very high levels of heat. Soapstone Cookware has been a historical feature of many cultures and still in use today. Never chemically seal this stone and clean-up is a snap since this stone is chemically inert! No staining and no moisture issues. This stone has zero porosity! No mold, mildew or bacteria issues.
So whether the whole kitchen is to be soapstone or just the island or maybe a sink, Soapstone is a beautiful and practical answer!
