"Repair enamel-on-steel baking dish"





January 7, 2010

My wife has a baking dish that appears to be enamel on steel, and over the holidays it developed a small chip and crack near the top edge where the finish meets a metal edge. I am faced with either repairing it or buying a new one for her. What would be the best material to repair it? The dish is white with a floral pattern, but I think I'd be OK with just about any color.

Thanks

Hi, Rick. You need to buy her a new one :-)

This is porcelain enamel, fused at ridiculously high temperatures from a ceramic frit. It's more like melting glass onto the dish than painting it. I don't think you'll find any food-safe high temperature paints.

-- Wish the chips on my dishes were the size of yours. Does your wife wear a jeweler's loupe when she unloads the dishwasher?  :-)
