Hey everyone,
Can someone recommend the best Porcelain repair kit for my KitchenAid interior? Also any application tips. Iíve searched and seen several kits used and available, Iíd just like to know what everyone thinks is the best.

I've never used this myself but found it on Amazon.  I would think some kind of two-part epoxy would work or a marine sealer (or both), depending on its heat rating.

Thanks asko. Iím really worried about high heat from Kitchenaic and detergent eating away at repair, but Iíll try this and see how it holds up

It should hold up

I think it will be fine. I also put a layer of clear nail polish over it for extra coverage.
I did that several years ago to the spin-tube that PhilR now has, in the center where the spin-tube attached. It was chipped around the mounting holes inside. I cleaned it first, using a very fine disposable nail file board and I think it's still good.

Not that I remember

Probably from Home Depot or the hardware store. Just don't be afraid to do a couple of coats, letting them dry well for a day or two.

Iíve used this stuff before on cars and appliances. Preparing the surface is key.
