Things have not changed much in the last few years.
Textured worktops do not show minor scratched but gloss will
Try it in a worktops showroom on a sample, if they wont left you try to
scratch it then you will know you can.
Buy from a specialist worktop shop rather than a shed, you should get a
better choice & better service/price.
