This is a good quality appliance paint for refinishing outer metal surfaces on appliances. I painted an ugly 18" by 48" aluminum plate outdoors that I prepared with sandpaper and a clean rag prior to painting to use as a decorative surface indoors with a can of this appliance paint. This paint produces a rugged professional quality finish equivalent to the original painted finish on an appliance if you follow all of the manufacturer's instructions printed on the can. Suggest keeping items painted with this paint outdoors for a minimum of 24 hours or more before bringing them indoors to allow most of the smell from this paint to dissipate further after the paint has dried to avoid having too strong of a new appliance paint smell indoors.
This paint has a very durable gloss finish and adheres very well to most metal surfaces as long as the metal surfaces being painted are prepared properly prior to painting by removing any loose paint, dust or dirt, etc. with a wire brush or sandpaper. It is also recommended by the manufacturer to rough up a glossy surface being painted with sandpaper prior to painting to allow the paint to adhere properly.
This paint must be applied when the temperature is between 50 and 90 degrees F [10-32 degrees C] and humidity is below 85% to allow the paint to dry properly. This paint is not designed to be applied on surfaces that exceed 200 degrees F [93 degrees F] such as range tops or oven interiors. A stove paint is available for high surface temperatures. This is an industrial quality paint and has very strong and harmful fumes and must be applied outdoors or in a very well ventilated area while wearing required safety protection or using other measures to avoid breathing the harmful fumes.
I have sprayed many types of paint and this paint doesn't spray well. Even after following all instructions and multiple coats, the finished product looks good but has a rough texture and scratches very easily. If I paint appliances again I will use a high quality silver or grey spray paint instead.

That is odd, John. Rust-Oleum® Specialty Appliance Epoxy is an ultra-hard, moisture resistance enamel that is specifically formulated for indoor metal surfaces. We want to know more about your preparation and application to get to the bottom of why the product scratches easily. Please call us at 800-481-4785 to discuss further.
This product was very easy to use. We moved our old bisque & white refrigerator into the garage. Prior to purchasing the spray paint, I used a magic eraser on everything. You will want to clean your appliance with a degreaser, otherwise the paint will be splotchy in those areas (this happened in a small area, but I just touched it up with a black permanent marker).
I removed both doors and taped off the inside with packing paper and painter tape. I laid the doors down and taped off the plastic gaskets/sides. Then I started spraying the side. The spray paint is much more runny then regular paint, so you will need to be very careful. I had a few areas that ran, but since I used black, it is not very obvious. Once the side was done, I did the other side. Then I did the front and then the top and some of the back. Then I did the doors, which I had laying down. This was much easier. I also sprayed the "wood" refrigerator handle.
There is a ton of overspray, you will DEFINITELY need to be wearing a mask!!! I wore a respirator and glasses, and after I was done with it all, I could feel that there was spray paint in my hair - this stuff really floats around. I am glad I was wearing older shoes because they also turned black. I guess my point is to wear old clothes and please cover your eyes and mouth, as this is not like normal spray paint.
I let everything dry for 24 hours, reassembled everything, and now I have a nice "new" shiny black refrigerator. The textured doors accepted the paint well and I definitely recommend this product.
I ordered this product online hoping to use it to cover yellow spots on a upright freezer . I had tried everything on the market to no avail. I was AMAZED! It covered the yellow spots in one application! I had some old plastic lawn chairs that were faded and looked awful, sprayed them with this, and sold them at the yard sale for a great price!
And just wanting to know how good this could be, I sprayed a small CARDBOARD box and left in out in all kinds of weather, , rain, hail, and snow. It, to this day is still in one SOLID piece!
I am ordering more today to paint the bath tub of a new place we are moving into. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
BUT be sure to use this brand and no other! Other brands will run and separate!
