    I used Giani on my countertops two years ago. I am careful with them, making sure to keep them dry and using cork trivets. I once let water set on it under a trivet and was horrified that the paint had "bubbled". But I gently blotted the water up, let it air dry for 24 hours, and you can't even tell where it happened. The very front edge in front of my sink is starting to wear off, from belly rubbing while doing dishes and right next to the stove is kind of dull now...but I can't tell if that is from the heat or just constant washing. We had hideous faux yellow marble laminate. We never intended this to be long-term and will be doing new countertops before we list the house for sale next year, but all in all, we're very pleased.
