Love the feel of the ceramic, its very hard and unforgiving but does not stain or mark. The table is very heavy (which is good) and has a really good quality feel to it. The extending part is easy to open and close, they grey material of the extension looks great and feels great, also easy to clean. Overall very happy. the only negative is you can see the bolts under the table but apparently its a design feature, not bad enough to reduce it from 5 stars. Don't think twice, you'll be happy with it.
