Does soapstone chip easily?
Soapstone is completely heatproof—your whole countertop becomes a trivet. As it is nonporous, it is naturally anti-microbial, it’s nearly impervious to staining, and acid doesn’t affect it. It is a dense stone that won’t chip easily or break, but it can be scratched or dented—which can be repaired by sanding. Jul 2, 2018
