    Ask a Tradesman

    Is there a worktop you don't have to use a chopping board on?

    Kitchen Fitters

    Do I HAVE to use a cutting board on any kitchen surface or are there some, where it’s not necessary? Or could there also be a safety concern in not using one?

    "For aesthetics ask the Tradesman who fitted the worktop to cut out a chopping from the waste material
    However, quartz or worktop made from epoxy resin will be good"

    "Hello Jackie
    You should really use a chopping board, but one of the best worktops is quartz. This can be solid or an overlay which is an 8mm slab over the existing surface. Hopefully, this helps you"

    "Are you writing an article? You'll only end up damaging the knife. No such thing as a knife proof worktop. there are a few scratch-resistant worktops in the market. You need a chopping board more for safety reasons in addition to health reasons."

    "You should definitely use it. non-scratch products begin to scratch due to water and detergent"
