Protect Against Heat

Direct contact with extremely high heat can cause damage. Always use a hot pad or trivet when setting down hot objects, such as hot pans or plates. Care should also be taken when using electric household appliances that may emit high heat such as crock pots, electric skillets, etc. as these can potentially damage the surface.

Prevent Scratches

Never use knives or other sharp utensils directly on the countertop surface. Always use a cutting board. No surface is scratch proof, cutting on them will cause damage, whether it is to your tops or your knives, will depend on the surface material.
