Burnt Ring From a Pan on My Kitchen Counter

0 0EmailPrintFollow
Pin It

A hot pan was set down on the kitchen counter (I think it's acrylic) and part of the counter burned off onto the pan. The counter is patterned (kind of spackled), and now there are 3 places where it's been burned off. I need to fix this before the landlord tries to charge me big bucks. Help please!

i am looking for a divider for the top of my stove in between the burners. the last one i had was by ballonoff home products.do they still exist? what is their address or web site?

Editor's Note: The only place I could find their products was on ebay. Look there and put Ballonoff in the search box. I didn't see what you are looking for but someone might have one for sale at some point.

I have a burn ring from a pan on my wood counter- the wood has a polyurethane coat I believe. Is there anything I can do to remove it or lessen it? The counter is a little darker than pine, and the burn is medium brown. Thanks.

Find a reputatable handy man to cut out a substantial area and replace with a cutting board type of wood or acrylic. It may be cheaper than your landlord charging you for a whole counter and it looks great and it's handy having a cutting board built into the counter.

I have successfullly poured 3-in-1 oil over the burn area and scrubed with plastic scrubers. I don't what else to call these scrubbers. They are not your ordinary kitchen scrubbers, but are available from harware stores and could be used in place of sandpaper. I used the fine grade ones.

This hint was told to me by a kitchen remodeler.

If it is a formica top and not one of the newer ones that can be sanded out, how about getting 4 nice (or one large) ceramic tiles and gluing them to the spot as a permanent landing pad for warm dishes? You can get decorative tiles and they will look nice.

My parents did this years ago right next to their stove and it has worked really well, and nobody has any clue that there is a burnt patch there.

I sat a hot pot on my kitchen counter and now have a burnt ring I can't get out. Please help! Pattie from Naples, FL

I don't think you can clean that off. We once bought a house that had a round burn on the counter. We purchased tiles to fit the area or cut it out a little more to fit the area. It made a real nice hot plate holder on the counter that looked like it was supposed to be there. (08/19/2006)

If you own your home, and have formica, I suggest that you not fret but try to be happy with a thinner great looking chopping block over the spot. If you rent or are thinking about resale, consider Liquid Nailing it to the spot, since you seem to use it for hot pans anyway, and it could happen still again?

Another option is to place a circle of granite or marble there without feet and use it for the purpose of setting hot things on it. We all make those mistakes. Hope this helps somehow? I can't think of ANYTHING or ANYWAY to remove a badly burned spot on any kind of countertop material. A more frugal material is to purchase from the dollar store a metal cardboard backed Hot Mat. The one I use ON TOP of my little toaster grill /oven is copper and from BAllONOFF Home Products, which may have a web site? Good luck and God Bless. (08/19/2006)
