Pitting of the top glass is not repairable, the glass must be replaced. The pitting is usually caused by high sugar content liquids spilled on the top when very hot and allowed to remain until cooled. The top is on back order but is still available at the link below. If you would like replacement instructions, please let me know!

The link below is to the part you will need!
