Concrete is prone to staining as a porous surface can absorb liquids and even bacteria but there’s a solution: seal the surface upon installation. Sealing will also prevent your counters from stains, scratches and heat though still some stains can appear; resealing should be done every one to three years. Even water can show some splashes, so if you are a pedant, avoid concrete or install glass over the concrete. Concrete can crack but there’s a way to avoid it: add fiber reinforcement, rebar, and/or wire mesh but if cracks still appear, they can be repaired.
