Just my own two bits here:
I am a pure Southern Boy and I fry EVERYTHING in oil. my range hood
is mediocre at best and I still get airborne oil residue in the stovetop area.
sad to say, but, I am pretty sure the damage is already done to your surface.
if you really want to keep what you have, I think that the only recourse is to
remove the finish, and do it over.
and the preventative measure would be to clean IMMEDIATELY after cooking
anything - even pancakes. this will be an ongoing maintenance thing with no end.
people (including myself) have the same issue with cabinets over and near the
stovetop. so the "fix" solution would be the same for kitchen cabinets over and
near the cooking area.
(and as for the finish you used, I would call the 800# help line on the can and
ask them about using it around the stove area).
and again, your issue is not caused by stove heat.
heat rises - so you would see more damage to the cabinets than you would
to the countertops, if that were the issue. and you used the same finish on them.
-- Failure is proof that you at least tried ~ now, go do it again, and again, until you get it right --
