Can I paint my glossy kitchen stove?

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

No. Because Stove Bright® High Temperature Paint is specifically designed to maintain its color at high temperatures; one might think that it is the perfect solution for painting a range or stove. There are two reasons that our paint is not suitable:

  1. It is a Flat Paint. The glossy finish of porcelain cannot be duplicated in a paint that is subject to high heat.
  2. Stove Bright® paint is not FDA approved for incidental food contact.

Alternatives to painting the range top or stove include services that refurbish porcelain or powder coating. These tend to be expensive options for re-coating a range or stove top.
