I'm assuming you are referring to the pre-finished engineered "hand-hewned" look flooring?
I know its the latest "in-thing" as flooring goes. I like the look- if the decor is there to accent it. I don't think you'd have any problem in a kitchen versus any other locale in a house (within reason).

Yes. Do real wood. Dont do laminate. I clean part time so Ive seen both in action. Wood cleans and wears great. Laminate is a pain in the ass. It shows every streak and water spot..

I love real hardwood flooring. We put in Bruce throughout much of our home and it has worn like steel. Still looks like new after more than a decade of use ('use' and not 'abuse').

I have to agree with Cecilia Rose on the laminate. No matter how many times I cleaned the laminate it looked streaky and blotchy. It drove me nuts; it always looked dirty. IF you can afford the real wood I would go with that.

Thanks for the post and everyone's responses. We're about to redo our bedroom and were debating wood vs laminate. Gives us a bit more info to go on.

I'm also wondering about this. I've heard laminate is more durable, can resist dogs claws (cats in our case) and high heeled shoes. I'm really worried about scratching. I hadn't heard before that it is harder to clean... So much to think about in this decision.

I use a laminate floor spray and it works and looks great. You should never use water on your laminiate it will indeed leave streaks and water spots. the spray allows it to shine with out any streaks or spots

Swiffer, both wet and dry, does a great job on laminates and hardwoods.
