You want something strong….metal or phenolic are good. I’ve got one from Hartville tool that’s been great.

I like the veritas ones. They have a steel one that amazing, and pricey, and a phenolic one thats pretty nice and more affordable. I have the phenolic mounted in my TS wing. I also have their steel top and cant say enough good things about it. Lee Valley will even replace the phenolic insert if you mess up the drilling.

IMHO, the incra magnalock router plates are the best in the business.
Pricey, but you’d only need one for a very long time, and it would hold its resale value.
It has features that put it above the rest. The inserts are held in with rare earth magnets and you can change them out without tools. They’re also adjustable for level. Others you have to use tape or trust the manufacturer.

That said, I prefer a plateless, seamless top. Nothing but a hole for the router bit and countersunk screw holes.

Corian routs easily. It’s just plastic.

I picked up a Kreg unit with adjustable support brackets that allow you to adjust each of the 4 corners to be perfectly flush with the table surface. It also avoids having to rout the top since the brackets support the insert.
