RE: [Histonet] bottom of water bath

From:"DiCarlo, Margaret"



Thank you everyone for all your excellent ideas for the bottom of a new
stainless steel waterbath!!  I can paint it after all which is what I
originally planned to do.  I am very grateful for this website since I
work alone and have no one to ask if I have a problem, so I do
appreciate all your responses.

Margaret,

Look for a silicone microwave oven mat and cut it to size.  They come in
colours and should lay nicely on the bottom.  If need be it could be
weighted down along the sides with fishing weights or even a small metal
bar
cut to size.  It is easier than painting and makes cleaning a breeze as
it
lifts out and rinse clean when the water bath is emptied.

You can paint stainless steel if you prepare the surface and prime 
correctly. Call the help line of Benjamin Moore, Sherman-Williams, 
Zinsser or ?? and tell them what you need.
