Painting the Hot Plate on a Coffee Pot?

Does anyone know if there is a safe paint and way of re-painting the hot plate on a coffee pot? I have refurbished a few coffee pots, but have always turned down perfectly good units because the hot plates looked so bad.

Open it from the bottom and pop out the metal lid. Sandblast it or sand it with very fine sandpaper or steel wool until you see shiny metal. Quite often shiny metal looks pretty enough and does not require paint.
If you do want to paint it, let it dry well, then spray paint it with automotive engine paint. That is not a water soluble latex paint. If you have to clean up overspray, use turpentine. Best to hang it on a stick outdoors and spray it there.

Engine paint can stand temperatures twice as hot as the coffee pot keep-warm plate ever gets.

The trick is to sand down through the burned on crud and get to shiny metal.

There's something called High Heat Paint. People paint Oven doors and baseboard heaters with it. I am not 100% sure if you can use it on your coffee pot's hot plate, but it may say on the can, or you can ask someone at Home Depot! I hope this helps! Good Luck!
