Painting a metal/enamel cooker

Hi painting fans.
I have just purchased a new (second hand) 2 ring/grill lpg gas cooker and it is not the colour I would have wished for. http://forum.doityourself.com/images/smilies/eek.gif
Is it possible to paint? Would I first have to sand the old colour down to get the paint to stick? Any advice welcomed (even if it is bad news and I need to accept the colour as it.)
Thanks

Welcome to the forums!

I've never painted a gas cooker but would assume you would need to use a hi temp paint like automotive engine enamel. Sanding and cleaning will always promote better adhesion. I don't know if you could get as good of a lasting paint job as the factory paint.
