Chipped enamelled cast iron. Safe to cook in, or not?

dost | Sep 6, 2010 11:05 AM

one spot about the size of a quarter, another smaller than a dime, and several little "flea bites" in interior bottom. I'm not worried about the cast iron, but could the enamel be dangerous to ingest?

I tried boiling water & sauteing onions, with no flakes coming off at all... but.. is it safe?
