Etched Jennair induction cooktop
Just installed a Jennair 36" mirror finish induction cooktop as part of an ongoing kitchen reno. We never realized how hard it would be to keep it free of smudges and how easily it would scratch. Some small but noticeable scratches were on the cooktop before we even used it. The installers were not as careful as we had hoped. We read about protecting the surface by putting paper towels underneath the pans to prevent scratching and this worked well for the first 3 or 4 times. Tonight, however, the paper scorched and there is what appears to be permanent etching on the cooktop. (See photo.) We didn't think that levels 5 - 6 were too high, but obviously we were very wrong. We just feel sick. The reno isn't even finished and we already ruined the cooktop. In desperation, I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions on how to minimize the damage.
