How to Repair Chipped Appliances

One thing that has kind of bothered me ever since we moved into this house was a little chip in the gas stovetop. Apparently it didn’t bother me enough to do anything about it for five years…. But, anyway, here I am with my roundtoit in hand, and I’m gonna’ show you how to repair small chips in appliances.

The spot always bugged me because it looked like dried on food. Not that I keep the rest of the stove spotless- do you know how impossible a black stove is to keep clean? So, when I was at Lowe’s recently, I happened to notice these little bottles of Rust-oleum appliance epoxy and decided to give it a try.

After three coats, it looked pretty good to me. (This pic was taken while the epoxy was still wet.)

It’s a bit shinier than the cooktop, but much better than before. At least I don’t catch myself trying to scrub off the spot.

Now if only I knew of a good way to clean the drip pans. And the grates. Seriously, I would much rather have a white stove than a black one. This thing shows every little smudge and dust particle.

Have you ever touched up a chip on your appliances? I don’t know how well this will hold up, but it shouldn’t get much stress on it.

By the way, I wasn’t paid to review this product, just wanted to share with you what I found and how it works. Not bad for a $3 investment.

  1. I have used this to and it holds up well. It’s a great cover up! I’m with you on black items; they show dust right after they’re cleaned! Thanks for sharing a great tip!

  2. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for that stuff. I have more chips than I care for…

  3. How cool Sheila! Amazing how after a while we don’t see something, or we put up with it, then one day whammo…NO MORE! I just saw on Ask Anna how to redo your ugly bathtub..wow! I wonder how it holds up? Mine is yellow, but it is fiberglass. I guess mobile home stuff from days of yore and yon.
    I have black drip pans also, the silver ones kept turning brownish from heat I guess. I don’t remember this happening decades ago.
    Well ,I am glad you finally “gotaroundtoit” GOOD FOR YOU! :)

  4. This is so cool that you found this product for appliance repair. I am soo keeping this in the back of my mind. I hadn’t thought about how hard it would be to keep black appliances clean either.

  7. Thank you for sharing! I didn’t know that an epoxy like that existed. I recently found a great epoxy to fill wood but it wouldn’t work on appliances. You can hardly tell that there was a spot on the stove at all.
