I just replaced the ceramic cooking surface on my range/stove/oven. When I pulled it out, I noticed the side close to the sink (which is about two to three feet away) was pretty rusted and corroded. The previous homeowner didn't have any caulking or other barriers in place to prevent liquids that splashed off the stove or out of the sink from creeping under the lip of the range then down the side.
I'd like to stop things from getting worse, and was thinking I should caulk the lip of the range and wanted to make sure I used the right kind. I'm worried that I need a special caulk for the high temperatures of the range. I looked at all the different kinds of caulking at my local home improvement store but didn't see any made for stoves. Can I use any kind of caulking? Do they make a specific kind for this situation?
