Does granite scratch? (Shelby Township, MI)

Avoid using sharp objects on your granite countertop. Granite countertops are mainly used to prepare food on. Cutting or chopping directly on the surface can cut the surface and leave it with unsightly marks and gashes.You can protect your granite countertop from cuts and scratches by placing a protective layer on it before cutting up food. You can also place a wooden chopping board on top of the granite countertop to absorb the pressure and nicks of sharp cutting knives. If a wooden chopping board is not available, then use your knives or cut up food on other non-granite surfaces located in your kitchen. If chopping and cutting on your granite countertop is unavoidable, then just chop lightly and carefully.

Avoid dragging kitchen equipment across your granite countertop. Kitchen equipment such as blenders, food processors, stoves, and mixers are heavy equipment. Their undersides may have sharp edges that can cut or scratch your granite countertop. To avoid this, do not drag your kitchen equipment across it, lift them instead. If the kitchen equipment is too heavy, ask for assistance to lift it or attach foam pads at the bottom. Foam pads can make it easy for you to drag your kitchen equipment across the countertop and protect the surface from cuts and scratches at the same time. According to kitchen-counter-tops.net
