I'm in the building stages and I have a counter that is laminate. Should I put something under the kettles to protect it?

Yes. You could discolour or melt a laminate countertop with the heat. I would use cork trivets under the boil kettle at a minimum. Not sure about the MLT or HLT (they're not as hot). Check to see what the laminate manufacturer recommends as far as max heat goes and contact time.

Good luck and welcome to the forum!
