You usually do not think of stainless steel as being a good material for countertops, but indeed it is. This is a material that does not need to be sealed or refinished ever.  Any mild soap product can clean it down, and you can also use it without having to worry about heat impacting it, the cold, food, juices spilling, and so on.  Though this one can be costly, it is one of the most low-maintenance options on the market today.
