    I have an enameled stock pot that is flaking off some of the coating, I think due to high heat over an open fire. Is there any way to remedy or repair the pot or do I just need to pitch it and buy a new cooking vessel?

    Not sure if it would work, but you can get bathtub touch-up paint to repair chips in the bathtub coating.

    Might be worth a shot for the few bucks it would cost. Comes in several colours and it stands up well if you prepare the surface properly.

    I don't know how heat resistant it would be.

    Once they start to flake the end is near.
    They are cheap, just replace it.


    Or go to the restaurant supply place and buy a good stainless one.

    what ^ said.

    but you can use your enamel pot on the wood stove to humidify your place in the winter. I bought a blue enamel coffee pot for just that purpose.
