FIrst post here...
I just bought a Stau 5qt Oval cocotte after a month of research. When I got it home, I inspected it closely - mostly in admiration.
However, if I flip the lid and look at the inner rim surface, there seems to be little "chips" all along the rim. Now I know that imperfections are normal, but this is everywhere along the edge of the rim - hard to describe, but where the interior meets the rim face (seems like the enamel finishes or there's a surface of no enamel?).
Should I return it?
