Honed finishes being completely flat do not collect spills because the surface can just be wiped clean as opposed to the rough grittier finishes. Honed countertops also benefit greatly if they are sealed. Flamed countertops feature this rough gritty surface as it is heated to extremely high temperatures and cooled rapidly. The flamed countertop achieves a rugged natural look. The rough surface can be somewhat random as a result of the unpredictability of extreme heat making this finish the most natural.
