Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hawk Dryer looks like new!
I have an older dryer that the paint was scratched, faded, and chalky. I used the "Biscuit" color, which is a popular color now. I cleaned the cabinet with scouring powder and a green scrub pad, then used lacquer thinner to give it a final cleaning. I did some sanding on rough areas. I used about one and a half cans to paint it. It is a heavy body paint and does not run as easily as other brands. It is important to move the can in an even motion keeping a constant distance from the surface. Overlap the spray by at least 1/3. The dryer looks great now. One thing I did was give the dryer a very light coat and let it dry for 5 minutes before spraying the final coat. It helps the paint stick better. The paint is even and very shiny. If you are careful, and apply it properly, you will get a good finish. I painted the dryer in the back yard, so overspray was not a problem. Great price too!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by satown210 More trouble than it should be
This paint is very different than most spray paints. It comes out in a heavy mist but hardly covers the appliance you are spraying. It creates a huge thick cloud worse than normal. Directions suggest an open garage. Everything in the garage with have over spray no matter how far away and it will not come off. After several cans the appliance looks like it came that color from the factory until you stop and look at it from the sides. The finish is very uneven. Parts are glossy, parts are flat. I don't see why you can't use a can of Satin paint that is cheaper, applies better, less over spray and over spray that can be wiped clean, and an even coat. I now have to figure out how i am going to even out the finish. I tried sanding and putting another light coat with same botchy finish.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CyclocrossMechanic Good for bicycle frames - be patient for dry time!
I have used this product on two bicycle frames and both times it offered good, thick coverage. You must follow the directions and allow for the long dry time (24 hours) for a perfect result; otherwise, it will not work. Durable enough to use on off-road bicycles.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Phil Do not use on wood.
This product was recommended to me by a Home Depot Paint Associate for use on some old wooden cabinets. Unfortunately, I took his advice and tried it. According to the info on the can, and the associate's comments, I figured that 2 cans should do the job. I bought an extra can, in order to paint a couple of shelves to match the cabinets. I prepared the shelves first, and painted them outside. It took several coats to get even coverage (over dry, sanded primer), and the resulting coating is extremely uneven & rough. It took all 3 cans just to cover the 2 shelves and 4 shelf brackets. I waited several days for it to dry, and started lightly hand sanding with 150-grit paper to smooth out the rough finish. After lightly sanding a small section, I noticed that the primer was showing through part of it. So now I have to get another can just to try to even out the color. Hopefully, it will apply more evenly now that there is a layer of epoxy already down.
I have painted similar shelves in the past with regular spray paint, and gotten much better results (with much less paint and much less hassle).
The metal shelf brackets actually came out pretty nice, so this stuff may actually be worth trying on metal surfaces (as it was meant to be used for), but I will never again use it on wood, and definitely will not use it on the cabinets I originally bought it for.
