Anyone ever done this? We have chrome ones that we keep clean but
are
aging and would like black ones now and before paying upwards of $40
for a new set of four, was wondering if there is any harm or danger
to
painting them black with high gloss metallic paint or something.

The colored ones I've seen for sale have a porcelain coating, not paint. I
think your paint job will last about 20 minutes.

If you use high temperature grill paint, you may get 30 minutes.

There are "stove paints" that withstand temp to 1200* . I don't think
they are for food contact surfaces.

I get the gag, but just in case some of us here don't know this....

Rub your hammer's face on a concrete surface occassionally so it gets
slightly roughened.

That's what I was tought eons ago. The rougher surface helps prevent
nails bending if you get a little sloppy about not striking them dead
on. They don't skid on the hammer face as much as they do when it's
glassy smooth.

I doubt it. As you mentioned earlier, the colored pans are most often a

Just a thought.... Don't they sell "high temperature" paints for things
like barbeque grills and engine exhaust manifolds?

I don't know the specs on those, but they might just take the heat at
those locations.

Dupli-Color makes a high heat manifold paint. It says on the can it's
good to 1200º. I painted my entire cat back dual exhaust system 2
months ago. Still black and no rust, but it's not on the manifold.

I would not paint them.

In the likely event the paint would burn off, the particulates would
ruin the food>

Since they are inside the oven I really don't see the point in painting
or replacing...but if they really bother you, get new ones.

Just in case I didn't understand you correctly, your subject line said
"Oven Drip Pans".

Izzat what you really meant, cause I've never seen chromed pans which go
inside an oven, but I guess they could exist.

Were you maybe trying to describe the round pans which go under electric
heating elements on the top of the stove?

Probably closer to $30.00 in black, if the OP meant "Range drip pans"

I can't see why anyone would need FOUR oven drip pans, and can't recall
ever seeing any chromed oven pans anyway.

"equal opportunity, not equal results"
If you were questioning the metaphor, it's:

A Midland US expression, I think. "Saucered and blown" (or "sassered and
blowed" or the like) means "ready" or "finished". The basic concept is
that the coffee in the cup is too hot to drink, so one pours some into
the saucer and blows on it until it's cool enough to drink, then pours
it back into the cup.

But I do think that buying the "tailor made" black ones is the way to go.

Yes; given the cost of a spray/porcelain/paint type product, time,
effort and no assurance they will work as stated.

Get the old surface completely free of grease and oil with a lye wash
or similar and then give the surface some tooth with wet or dry
sandpaper, Use barbecue black or engine black. If available the satin
finish seems to hold up the best. Warm the surface to about 200 in
the oven before painting and then put them back in the oven to cure
and it should last a good time. You might hav to refinish them sooner
than the porcelain ones but paint is cheap. Holds up well on
motorcycle parts too, never
liked chrome.

Get the old surface completely free of grease and oil with a lye wash
or similar and then give the surface some tooth with wet or dry
sandpaper, Use barbecue black or engine black. If available the satin
finish seems to hold up the best. Warm the surface to about 200 in
the oven before painting and then put them back in the oven to cure
and it should last a good time. You might hav to refinish them sooner
than the porcelain ones but paint is cheap. Holds up well on
motorcycle parts too, never
liked chrome.
So you've painted chrome, with success?
