    Just read an earlier popst regarding. Enamel stoves having a greater potential for cracking? Have any of your noticed this to be true and if so, what are the causes?
    Also, will all stoves rust where you put a humidifier or tea keetle no matter the surface material? If so, what's a good solution?

    Bolderdash. At least with Jotuls. Well treated the enamel will last a long time. Our retired 602 has nary a crack on it.

    The stoves that are more likely to crack or chip are the cast iron stoves. The Porcelain Enamel on steel panels are a lot less likely to chip. ( like your house kitchen stove ) The cast iron is thick and will not give if bumped or taped , the steel panel stove Enameled will give more so ( Kinda like a car fender ) it all depends on how well it treated over the years.
