I'm not sure.  I can't say I've ever put food on directly on it.  I think I always use a cutting board or plate between food and countertop.

wow, your counters look fantastic!

my counters all have deep grooves and bad patch jobs - when we moved in the landlords swore up and down that they were going to replace it - like thats ever going to happen!

I wish I could refinish our counters like this. Is it durable?

It seems to be just fine.  They clean up great.  I've only had them done a few weeks but I've had no problems at all.

If you have grooves, you can fill them with wood filler and sand.  I had two spots that I filled in and you cannot tell.

I have a friend who did this and they put six layers of polyurethane on it and it has looked great for the past 8 years.
They just treat it like it cost them a million.
No hot pans, not cutting on the surface.. so an and so forth.
Great idea thou.

Unfortunately, the grooves are so deep that the top laminate layer has started to peel up - the damage is so bad that short of ripping up the laminate layer there really isn't anything I can do for refinishing.

GREAT JOB! I am going to do this with my rental property but may consider a rustic color because of the floors that we already have. But then again, I love the greyish color.

Ohhhhhhhhh............. I love this! Now here is my question..... The paint dude told me to use Kilz's for surfaces that were non pourous (such as a laminate counter top) surfaces <we were wanting to paint one of those stupid cheaply made , yet all to expensive entertainment center neon pink for my lil girls room!  Well, the paint started peeling. Even though we did two layers of Kilz let it dry for 48 hours each time. Then we had one layer of the pink paint and let it cure for 48 hours then we sealed it with 2 layers of poly...... Any suggestions? Is this just a bad experience and a bad idea to do it for the kids room since they are so hard on stuff? Any suggestions? Do you mind if I copy you and do my kitchen counter? LMAO It is the bright horrible blue..... neon almost....... is there any step you would recommend to ensure no chipping or peeling and such since I have kids? Thanks!

I painted one of those laminate bookshelves and used a primer specifically made for painting on plastic. I had no peeling at all.
You could probably use those spray paints made for plastic too.
