Burn Marks on Porcelin Sink

Does anyone know how I can fix this? I put a hot fry pan in my kitchen sink Instead of letting it cool off, I put it in there hot, and it burnt the porcelin sink in 2 spots about the size of a half dollar. It is a brand new sink and I am devastated. I did not think this would of happened. Any help would be appreciated.

IF NOTHING ELSE WORKS, CONTACT YOUR HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE. IT SHOULD BE COVERED.

If the burn has eaten into the surface (run your fingertip over the edge to feel if there is a slight depression) you will need to have it refinished. You can coat it temporarily with white nail polish.

Take an alka seltzer tablet and dip it in a little water. Then gently rub it into the stain. You should see results in just a few minutes. You can also try baking sode, but that could dull the surface.
