    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.


    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.
