Stovetop Meets LeCrueset

This is what happens when you drop a 7.25 quart LeCrueset with a 5.5 lb pot roast in it onto your porcelain stovetop. It's about an inch long. At least the LeC is OK.

Ouch! Sorry about that Andy ... I think I'll stick with our cast iron grates! Was your pot roast tastey at least?

The pot roast was delicious!

I have cast iron grates. This chip is on the front edge of the top in the middle of the stove.

Both feet and pot roast were unharmed.

YIKES!

I figure it's only a matter of time for my ceramic stove, but so far so good.

Can you fix that?
