Burned kettle, is it ruined?

BonBon79 | Dec 7, 201505:48 PM     2

To dry the interior of my kettle the other night after boiling some water, I placed the empty kettle on an open flame to evaporate the water. I usually do this and only leave it on for 10 or 20 seconds, but the other night I absentmindedly left it on for several minutes! It's an enameled steel Le Creuset kettle and while the interior doesn't look different, the exterior has spots all over it resembling rust that will not scrub off. Have I ruined the kettle? Are the spots able to be removed?
