Burn on kitchen formica counter top

In a rental unit, I have a burned spot(about 2" in diameter )on the formica kitchen countertop.
Short of replacing the entire kitchen countertop surface, are there other solutions that have worked for the group's members?
Thank you very much for any and all input.

If it's not too deep, you can try sanding it out, but the pattern is probably just printed onto the laminate, and you'll sand right through it.
My best solution is to put down another piece of laminate or tile.
Other option: Use a router to remove a rectangular recess, then fill it with tile to make a permanent trivet.

If you have a router, rout out the bad place with a template. Just deep enough to get the formica but not the substrate. Rout out a matching piece of formica. Check depth so it isn't so deep that it will be recessed, nor so high it will stick up. Insert and glue with contact cement. Coat both pieces, and let set for ten minutes to get tacky. Put a weight on it so it stays level and flush. LET DRY FOR 24 HOURS. You can fill in the seam with clear epoxy, and sand or rout until flush if enough glue hasn't come up to fill the crack. Altogether a precision repair, and if you do it right, an acceptable one, but you will be able to see the seam and repair. Other than replacing the whole top, it's the way to go.
