We are still to decide what to use for our kitchen bench top. We have heard that granite is porous and that light colored granite stains easily. Have other people experienced problems with granite?

I think I read somewhere that you can buy something to treat the granite so that it isn't so porous. I'll try to find it for you.
Read about the cleaner and sealer here:

I too was concerned about granite in the kitchen so I opted for caesarstone. Same for the laundry.
I did however choose granite for the bathrooms cos the look cannot be beaten. In fact marble is the sexiest of all but I was too much of a wimp to get that.
I think that the bottom line is that if you are prepared to look after it then you can get almost any surface.

I myself prefer darker color of granite. It hides the stains and looks better; and is colour neutral.
checkout this granite benchtops; you might have an idea of how it will look like:
