Stainless is probably the "best" in that it will last longer than you and puts up with all abuse and is easy to clean, it's not going to be the prettiest though. We have a large utility room which I intend to turn into a commercial kitchen with full stainless units. the normal kitchen will in time get stone counters of one type or another.
