Hi, I read that you can use epoxy paint to redo a range top. How does that hold up to heat. I have a chrome one that has seen better days and I dying to paint it. But I thought I would have to go with automotive painting. I painted the hood with almond epoxy and it turned out great! I'd love to do the rest.

Check with your local apliance store or Home Depot for their appliance paint which is heat resistant.

We painted an electric cook top several years back and never had a problem. You have to make sure that the surface is absolutely clean. Be sure to do this outdoors as the fumes are pretty strong.

Hi Ken,

Did you paint yours with epoxy paint? I want to do it in Almond and I don't believe high temperature paint has much of a color selection.I think it can also come off if it comes in contact with certain chemicals. Acetone being one. Although I don't know why I would have acetone near it. There are probably other chemicals that could cause a problem too.

The paint was specifically marked as appliance and it was an epoxy. Smelled like the dickens and it was not cheap.

We put it on a stove top and a vent hood in a rent house we had. 6 years later, we sold it and stove top still top still looked OK. I believe it was almond color as well.

Hmmm.... I think i will just have to try that. It certainly can't look worse than it does. And it might just turn out to be terrific. Thanks loads.

The Iceman is right,as he usually is .I did a range in an old Jayco I bought and it looked like new when finished. I removed the top and did it outside. It must be clean. If there is a grease build up try engine degreaser.

My chrome stove top started looking yucky, too. I did it with white Epoxy paint, but it didn't hold up for very long under the grates, where it gets very hot. Then I went to white High Heat paint, couldn't get it in Gloss then, but it does hold up. Now I have found some that is Gloss, so I am going to do it again.

I am gonna look for the white high temp paint and paint it under the grates and then use almond on the rest of the stove. Unfortunatelyy after painting the range hood almond I am kind of stuck with that color. Maybe it won't be too
noticeable.What do you think? and thanks for your help.

Maybe you can call around, and find some almond high heat paint. Finding it in gloss is the hard part.
