    Question:

    We are building a house and are putting in a wood stove. we are curious
    to the difference between cast iron and enamel. Thanks for your imput.



    Answer:

    Enamel is applied (usually) OVER cast iron. The porcelain enamel used on stoves is a layer of a special colored glass powder which is baked onto the cast iron parts at a high temperature.
