My new LC 7.25 french oven question

dixiegal | Jan 26, 201104:18 AM

I FINALLY received my new Caribbean Blue LC french oven. What a beauty.
Seems to be in fine shape. Though in examining the enamel finish on the lid, I do see some areas where the color is a bit thin. I can see black showing through. Mostly on the raised lettering of Le Creuset. The finish is nice and smooth, so it won't be a problem. It just seems like if the coloring isn't even, that it might would have went to an LC outlet, instead of my house.
Oh well, that is the risk of ordering.

Anyway, my question is about the rim of the pot and lid. It seems to be unfinished. So will it rust? LC does not mention any care that is needed to the rims. Such as baking on a seasoning coat or two. Maybe it is a finish of some sort that I can't see or feel?

I know the inside of my mini pot is black and rough as if it is unfinished. But it is finished.
