Yesterday morning I placed a burning hot stainless steel frying pan on the countertop in the house I live in. I got distracted by other things and I am pretty sure it stayed there for a while. Upon removal, I discovered a perfectly circular heat stain on the countertop. I don't know what material the countertop is made out of. I included pictures of the stain and the area around it, as well as the edge of the countertop.
Today, I tried scrubbing it with baking soda and water for about 20 minutes but I didn't see any difference.
Any idea on what kind of material this countertop is made out of and/or any ways to remove the stain would be really helpful.
The owner mentioned it's not quartz, granite or marble but didn't say what it was.It looks like it's a plastic cover on wooden material.
Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
