New Staub Dutch oven looks damaged?

SmokedBrisket | Apr 10, 201905:52 PM     11

Hello. I purchased a brand new Staub Dutch oven from Dasallas.com and it arrived looking perfect. Just got around to finally cooking in it and it looks like the bottom is damaged or something. I'm posting some pictures. It almost looks like the enamel wore off? The area in question is a circle that matches up where it sat on my electric range.

I barely used medium heat. And just a silicon spoon. No scratching or anything. I practically babied the thing. Cooked a pot of beans for 3 hours on the stovetop. Cleaned the pot with soap, water, soft sponge. I didn't think I did anything wrong.

Can someone look at the pictures and give me their opinion? Is the enamel damaged? Is that bare cast iron showing? Or did I burn off some kind of factory season? Not sure what happened here. I can provide more info if needed.
