Any plating needs to be sanded or blasted prior to painting.

You might also want to try a local appliance place that repairs house stoves. They could tell you what kind of paint that they use to touch up used appliances to make them look good for resale.

An oven isn't close to hot enough.

Curing: VHT FlameProof coatings will air dry in 15 to 30 minutes and if handled with reasonable care, may be put to immediate use. Heat curing method for maximum resistance to solvents, salt spray, humidity, thermal shock and heat:
15 minutes at 250F
30 minutes at 600F
1 hour at 800F
30 minutes at 1,000F
