Should You Cut on Granite Countertops?

Ganache Granite in Atlanta

You’ve just gotten your kitchen upgraded, and you love your new granite countertops. Now you are wondering how extensively you can work on your countertops when it comes to food preparation. Granite is extremely durable and strong. However, one of the most common questions about new granite countertops is: Can I cut, slice, and dice right onto the granite surface?

The last thing you want to do is to ruin the timeless beauty of your new granite counters. So, while it is possible to cut and chop directly on your granite surface, it’s probably best to use a cutting board. If you create a meal that requires a lot of cutting, chopping, and prep work, it’s a good rule of thumb to use a cutting board because you don’t want to ruin your expensive knives. A granite surface is much harder than any knife blade and will quickly break the blade or at the very least dull it right away.

It’s one thing to quickly slice up a piece of fruit on your granite countertops, but you do need to be careful not to scratch your granite.
