Countertops. Stay away from traditional 4-inch by 4-inch tile on your countertops. Stainless steel, quartz, Corian and laminates are four good choices that don't have grout to scrub and never require sealing.
Granite is an all-time favorite for its ease of care even if it does need occasional sealing. If you don't want laminate but you need a lower-cost, easy-to-clean option, consider large-format through-body porcelain tiles. The large size will keep grout lines to a minimum. For any grout you do need, use epoxy grout. The formulation is extremely resistant to stains, making cleanup that much easier.
