Granite Kitchen Islands
Granite is a very heat stable surface (it doesn't burn), making it ideal for a counter top, and the upkeep of granite kitchen island is a fairly easy. One thing to consider about any hard surface is that it will be susceptible to thermal shock. Quick temperature changes will cause the granite to fracture or break, although don't worry about granite melting (like melamine), as the melting temperature of a granite counter top is approximately 2000 degrees F.
Marble Kitchen Islands
Marble is a stone material that is either a sandstone or metamorphosed sandstone that has been structurally changed from heat and pressure. In some cases marble that is used as a building material is simply sandstone, specifically limestone. Although beautiful, limestone is easily corroded by acid, which can come from vinegar, or even tap water, citrus juices and other common household cleaners. This surface can also scratch quite easily, never use a knife on a marble surface, and food prep is not advised. Look for a marble surface that is matted, as these will not show blemishes as easily as the polished marble surfaces.
