Also, just because a quartz top can resist scratches and cuts, it is not immune to damage from the fluids, enzymes and acids from food items. These juices, if not cleaned or treated properly, can stain your countertop surface. This is especially true if you cut acidic foods on your quartz countertop as they can wear out the seal on your countertop, allowing the juices to stain the surface quickly and leaving a noticeable dull spot.
Food should also not be cut directly on a stone top also due to the potential health risks that may arise. Foods are generally breeding grounds for bacteria that we can easily ward off thanks to our immune system. However, these bacteria seep into the micro-scratches and cracks and can end up being harmful to us as they get mixed up with other food item.
