Will stainless steel paint last on an electric range?

I'm having a hard time finding an electric range with bread proofing so I'm considering using stainless steel paint on the black one that we have now but wasn't sure if the paint would last on a range so i am hoping for first hand knowledge.Otherwise has anyone purchased an electric range with bread proofing recently? One that might still be on the market?I have only found one and the reviews are horrible.

  • Use appliance paint on the one you have. Or bite the bullet and get a car restoration or body shop to paint for you. Unless you have thousands to spend on a specialty stove/oven, they are hard to find. Not a feature many request. Does it have to be electric?

    • I hear you. Plus running a gas line isn't cheap either. Or as others have suggested, maybe invest in a separate proofing box? To me, matching appliances is not important - how they function is top priority. If you are happy with what you have and it functions properly, keep it! Who cares if they don't match.

    1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and place a loaf pan or cake pan in the bottom of the oven. 2. Place the container of dough on the middle rack and pour 3 cups of boiling water into the pan. 3. Close the oven door and allow the dough to rise as instructed. If you limit the time that the oven door is open, the proof box can be used for both the first and second rise without the need to refresh the water.

    Turning your oven into a proof box creates ideal conditions for yeast activity.

    When I used to design franchised bakeries for a living, they had specific proofing ovens, that included a water line to add controlled humidity.

    i would look at used commercial kitchen equipment stores and see what you can find.


    No, that stainless steel paint won’t last. It might off-gas and effect the taste of the bread. Yuck.

      Thinking about barbecue – rated or fireplace screen – rated high temp paints,

      they’re not “stainless steel”, even though you can get a metallic silver color for Engine Paint.


      Stainless steel is Milled steel from a foundry. There’s many compositions and alloys certifications. Like 18-8.


      None of those Paints are for enclosed “food service” use.

      It would have to be NSF Certified, as in the National Sanitary Foundation, of which restaurants must use.

      If anything meets NSF standards, you can be sure it would be labeled that loud and clear & the price would reflect that. For example, It’s always stamped on the bottom of pro pots & pans.

      “Enamel Paint” by definition, has a petroleum-based carrier & propellant. Petroleum burns & off gases when exposed to heat.


      Certainly, there’s some small commercial proofing ovens out there? What about those small bread makers?
