I read a recommendation on another post and wanted to get your input. For a new stove, before the first burn, a member recommended to clean the inside of the stove with a degreaser, then coat the inside of the stove with POR-15 high temp paint to prevent rust. This sounded like a good idea to me, but is this something that you recommend? And would this do anything to the warranty on the stove (LL Pioneer Top Vent)?
Thanks as always for the advice.
I would think that if any of that was really beneficial that new stove's operating manuals would recommend those actions. None do, that I am aware of. The only thing I would recommend with a new stove is to have plenty of cross ventilation the first few burns ,to get rid of the very strong paint/metal burning in smell & smoke that you will always get.
