I have a laminate worktop (it was all i could afford at the time) but really hanker after Minerva :)

Where is the best place to buy reasonably priced Minerva and how much would it cost to get it fitted?

Good old granite for me - any day. When we bought our house there was a beautiful oiled maple worktop in half the kitchen - and around the sink. It was a complete and utter disaster. In my ignorance, on day one, I washed up an empty can of catfood (to recycle it) and though I didn't actually leave it draining on the worktop, at some stage, when still damp it did make its way there and stayed there overnight. Came down in the morning to a huge unsightly ring. And that was just the beginning. Everything marked and it really didn't age gracefully though the previous owners had very very carefully oiled it. I was so glad to see it go when we remodelled the kitchen and after living with the unsightliness for 11 years.
