? about vintage enamelled cast iron!

charmoula | Nov 2, 2009 06:06 AM

I'm considering purchasing a vintage Dansk enamelled cast iron cocotte (uh...Dutch Oven, I think, in English) -- but the one I was looking at has enamel on the bottom, not just cast iron.

Is it safe/OK to use an enamelled pot, which has enamel on the bottom, on my gas stovetop? Or is that kind of pot meant to be used in the oven only?

Thanks for any advice.
