This was the acrylic counter we had - made by LG solid surface as stated. It had the "brick" look backsplash at the oven.

I would not put anything hot on it.

This is what the quartz looked like - the sink and stove covers were like tombstones to move. This guy obviously came up with an alternative cover for the stove.

The quartz is stone, so you can set hot things on it.

Well, they must have provided both materials in early 2013. Regardless, I'm in big trouble.

Tom ~ the quartz was an option in 13 and I think maybe part of 14. They dropped it because of weight but also because if not mounted correctly and bedded with a BUNCH of silicone to cushion it, the Island counter breaks. Having said that, I love it. Take pot right from stove and sit it on counter if you need to.


If you had the quartz, you could ask for a set of cutting boards that were made to fit the sinks. We have them and the sink covers are sitting in a storage shed. The cutting boards look like they're made out of Starboard. Very nice and routed to fit into the sinks and stay put.

Thanks, Vaughn. Given everyone's responses, I'm quite sure we have the synthetic material. There's definitely a faint sign of some yahoo who placed a hot pot on the counter top, if only a few seconds.

Brad...thanks for the pics.

Tom ~ the Quartz are VERY heavy. If you have the stove covers, each half probably weighs 30 lbs or so. Also - they look like stone that's been formed.

Thanks for the info. My husband did what you suggested and so far we're ok hooked up to city water. He thinks he can turn the bypass back off so that we can use the water pump to pump water from the fresh water tank when we're back on th road. I hope he's right. One of the many issues that we've had was with the water pump. It seemed to be working fine on this trip. We only had a problem when we hooked up to city water.

Good news is, the acrylic is sandable and polishable, so perhaps you can repair the mark.

Good to know as that's something I can manage. Need to Google the procedure or contact the manufacturer.
