A few years ago i got a beautiful le creuset enamel whistling tea kettle. I love it, it's dark grey and has a traditional shape and whistles. But recently i forgot it on the fire and it burned the lime deposits and smelled of smoke so i put baking soda and water in it a couple of days. Now it's rusty. I guess the burnt lime deposits may have detached the inner enamel.
What do you think, is it ok to use, will the tea i make taste metallic? Is there anything i can do to fix it?
it was on sale but still pretty expensive. I wouldn;t buy one full price but i really love it.
