Staub Cocotte enamel question
Originally posted in the Staub private sale thread, figured it'd get more visibility here.
I recently purchased a 7 qt. Staub B-stock round Cocotte from Zwilling online. While I anticipated visual/cosmetic blemishes on the exterior, it appears that it also has a small chip in the interior enamel.
Will this effect performance and/or worsen over time? Not sure if I should contact them for a replacement or if the chip is harmless.
Assuming it is a real chip...
For a brand new cookware, I would contact them. Exterior may be I can overlook, but not for interior. Think about it. If you bought a $20 nonstick pan with a hole on the nonstick surface, won't you want to return it? So why hold a lower standard/expectation for a much more expensive cookware.
This will not affect performance much (since it looks small), but it can worsen over time.
Thanks, I will contact them and hope for the best as I was very unimpressed with their customer service while waiting for the item to arrive. I never buy "B" stock items but the price was too good to pass up, hopefully I can swap it out for one without any interior problems.
