Stovetop cosmetic damage

My boler has the standard two burner stovetop. The stovetop itself is in acceptable condition, but the stovetop cover is in poor condition. The ceramic is chipping off in multiple locations. What is the best solution to this problem? Is it possible to get a replacement cover? Is there an easy repair alternative? Ultimately, I could replace the whole stovetop unit, but I'd prefer not to have to do that.

Derek

You didn't mention what color, but maybe this: Amazon.com: Sheffield Bronze Corp 1454 Porcelain Filler & Repair 1 Oz.: Home Improvement notice it says that the repair withstands temps to 400 degrees. I know no personal knowledge when it comes to this product.

I think answers to your questions may be "No."

Have you seen: 2burner cooktop and ventahood

If the stove is working OK, keep it for a while and just keep your eye open for someone selling their used one. Chances are you can just pull the cover off that to replace yours. There have been a number for sale here, on bolerama, craigslist, ebay and kijiji.

Here is one on bolerama, posted at the end of Feb:

Head to your local paint store. There are lots of heat resistant products out there. Just re-paint the whole thing if the stove is still working. Ours was a crackled metal finish. The boler had stood in a field for years and food drippings left on the stove. I finally had to use a wood chisel to get the goop off after CLR and everything including muratic acid failed me. Needless to say the finish was a mess so I just used an aluminum coloured heat resistant paint. Since I made a chopping board cover that lives there most of the time, the whole thing looks fine. Not pristine but since our boler is a camper on the go, rather than for show, it's fine.

i wonder if a powdercoating place could give you advice? powdercoat is baked on so i would think heat would not be a problem for it.
worth a little research anyway.

I have a 4-burner stove in my Bigfoot that has seen better days. It works great, but the stove top is chipped and kinda' nasty looking. I was thinking about getting it redone with a real porcelain enamel coating. There aren't too many places that do this any more but I found one that look promising.

Welcome to CCC Main page

I don't have time to mess with it right now, and there are more urgent issues with the trailer that I need to devote resources to. But I was thinking about giving this place a shot when the time comes.

It would be a lot easier to wake up to than the flower power Trillium add a room recently posted. Think Retro.
