Porcelain is non-porous and hygienic. Nothing can penetrate the surface or cause danger as long as you clean up appropriately. And regular cleaning is really the best defense against bacteria, etc.
o Daily cleaning: For quick clean-ups, soap and water work, although, consistent use of soap will cause a soap scum buildup. Just hot water is better to wipe up spills and messes.
o Porcelain countertops are durable, but you’ll want to remember that they’re not
indestructible. Ceramic knives can scratch the top of your porcelain. Therefore,
cutting and slicing on a cutting board is smart. Just no reason to change it.
