Le Creuset - Slight chipping and rust on lips of new pot and lid

oingiboingi | Mar 24, 201510:00 AM

After just two uses of my brand new LC dutch oven (I was very gentle with it as it's my first LC), I've noticed slight chipping on the edges of the pot and lid. The lid has very clear evidence of rusting, while the pot does not appear to have rusted (yet). I've attached pictures of the worst spots as examples, but there are similar marks all around the entirety of both the lid and the pot. Is this a defect and a valid reason to exchange it for a new one (I purchase it on Amazon.com)?

Many thanks in advance!
