Hi

just wondering if I had my stove top powder coated, would it stand up to the heat? The stainless is sort of stained and unattractive.

cheers
Bob

You can power coat at home.

we had ours p'coated but we never use the cook top anyway. I guess it might pay us to see if we can locate another one and leave it 'natural'??? There is also a newer version of chrome plating called black chrome. I don't like the look but it IS becoming popular. I believe the best coating is a high heat paint (bbq paint??) but colors ARE limited.

With a good buffing compound for SS metal it should buff new again...a restraunt hood manufacturer is where I had mine done...the compound is cheap...I was charged 40.00...A stainless steel fabricator is usually present in most major cities.

hiya! thanks for all the insight..... after reading the various opinions, I might just try and polish it up. I have buffer wheels and various grades of polish. I should take a before photo, so if it comes out how I like it, I can post both before and after photos.....

cheers!
Bob
