Our "brilliant" cleaning people, stripped the "black" finish off of
the top of our Thermador gas stove by using some unknown (presumably
abrasive) cleaning fluid.
Specifically, instead of the satin black finish, streaks of steel are
showing through on the steel plates that cover the cooktop surface
underneath the burners and grills.
Besides just buying new plates, is there any way to recoat or refinish
Specifically, is there any type of paint or other finish that I can
apply over the stripped areas?
Since it is all black, even a reasonably close color match would be
better than seeing the bright silver metal showing through.
Not sure what type of "special" paint is needed. While the top doesn't
get red hot since it is below the burners, there is definitely
reflected heat when a pot is on the burner. Also the surface needs to be
pretty durable to withstand drippings and cleanings.
