The new avocado?

Remember avocado appliances? They were a staple of late 60s and 70s kitchen design. Everyone who was anyone had them in their new kitchen. Is there anything today that is a must have in a new kitchen? I know what I see in real estate listings.
I'll give you a hint. It is hard, speckled, expensive, and its everywhere.

If you guessed granite, you were right.
Are granite countertops and stainless steel appliances the avocado appliance of this generation?

I think these butcher-block counters have far more charm and they are so much less expensive.
