I scorched my Corian tabletop. Is there a way to repair it?
By Tina from NY
Yes, Corian burn marks and other mishaps can be repaired. Some, if not too deep, can be fixed just by sanding the area. If you don't want to try it yourself you can contact the Corian dealer/installer in your area and they will make the repair so you never know there had been a repair made.

How do I get a burn mark off a Corian countertop?
By molly from Hiram, GA
I had a bad burn on a countertop. When we built the house, we had gathered ideas we liked. It just so happened one of the ideas were tiles inset onto the countertop near the stove. My husband cut squares and inset decorative tiles that matched the kitchen decor on either side of my stove. It eliminated the burn spot. (08/30/2009)
I left a hot pan on Corian and it made a white circle burn mark. How can I remove the burn marks without damaging the Corian surface?
Here's a tip I read years ago in a very old "Hints from Heloise" book:
If you set a hot pot down and scorch your countertop, mark a square around the burned place that you can cover with an inexpensive ceramic tile. Use a drill and jigsaw to cut out the marked square. Replace the section with the ceramic tile and grout in place.
Why do this instead of figuring out a way to remove or hide the burned spot? It's because you're going to keep cooking in this same kitchen, and you're going to keep being yourself. Obviously, this spot is a convenient place to be able to set down a hot pan safely. If you just scoured out the burnt spot, odds are good you'd have another burn in almost the same place to deal with sooner or later. Once you've taken an hour or so to replace that bit of counter with ceramic tile instead, your kitchen prep area is custom-designed for your needs.
Hope this idea helps.
No need to do any cutting into the Corian.
Items you will need:
Once the repair has been made buy several tiles and place them on the counter and use them to put your hot pans instead of placing directly on the Corian. (08/29/2008)
