Can You Give an Honest Opinion on Concrete Countertops?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: I’m trying to get an honest opinion on concrete countertops. Everything I’m finding on the web is written by the manufacturers — I need something a bit more honest.

My husband and I cook a lot so I need to know how concrete actually holds up in a well-used kitchen. I’ve also heard that it’s terrible for rolling out dough; if anyone has any experience with that it would be incredibly helpful.
