Ovens and the area around them get very warm and paint might have a hard time staying applied over a long period of time. Also it might be difficult to prevent brush strokes. On the other hand, Rust-Oleum makes a line of paints designed for high heat. Their paints are much more durable and would probably last. If the surface is metal, try sanding a bit to help the pain adhere, cleaning the surface well afterwards. Make sure you wear gloves for oil-based paints as they will NOT come off your hands easily!
