Great product, pictures inaccurate.This is a great product, I bought it two weeks ago. However, it was so new that there was no sample in the store to see firsthand. Based on the pictures here on the website, and on other "Ash" type products in the store, I made the purchase, but at delivery I see it is much lighter, even whiter, than the pictures show here.

Good to know
FIXA diffusion barrier should be mounted to the underside of the countertop above a dishwasher for added protection against moisture. Always use a chopping board. Never cut directly on the countertop with a knife. Never pull an object with rough or ragged edges across the countertop as it can scratch the surface. Laminate can withstand common household chemicals, such as dishwashing liquid, but not corrosive chemicals, such as descaling agents, oven cleaners, chlorine and acetone. Remove these immediately if they spill on the countertop. Even though laminate is a durable material you should never place hot pots or pans directly on the countertop without a trivet or pot stand. Do not place a toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle or other kitchen appliances that emit heat directly over a seam between two countertops because the heat can damage the seam. Never use steel wool, a scouring pad, scouring agent or similar products as they can scratch the surface. Not suitable for use in damp rooms.
Wipe clean with a soft cloth dampened with water and a mild dish detergent or soap, if necessary. Wipe dry with a clean cloth.
