What types of counter-tops can you cut on without causing damage (and can clean easily)?

    Polished concrete, or ceramic tile would be less damaged than other materials--but NO countertop material is cut-proof completely.  And some are harder to clean than others. Cutting boards are very CHEAP--countertops are NOT. Buy a cutting board and forget what materials can be cut on.

    I’ve got solid wood work tops and just kept the off cuts and cut outs to make chopping boards . You can cut in granite but it is slippery , so I’d get a wooden chopping board anyway.

    We have granite countertops but we do not use them as cutting surfaces because that dulls the knife edges in a very short time. You should always use a cutting board or better yet a good plastic cutting board.

    Stainless steel or stone, maybe quartz, but it's going to be hard on your knife. There's a reason cutting boards are used. Countertops and good knives are expensive. Cutting boards are cheap.

    Home is your sanctuary, and your kitchen is the heart of it. More than just where you cook, it is a gathering place for family and friends. Why wouldn't you want that important room to be one of the cleanest spaces in your home too? With the right materials, your kitchen can not only be easier to clean, but a breeze to maintain as well.

    The professionals use stainless steel, but they spare their knives by using a plastic or wooden cutting board.

    If they are hard enough not to be damaged then you will damage your knives. So use a cutting board.
