Enamel is powered glass that is fired in a kiln to create shiny smooth surfaces that help conduct heat efficiently and also prevents rusting. Because the external material is glass, this pot is prone to chipping if you bang on surfaces. Once enamel chips, it will begin to reveal the steel underneath and rust can develop underneath. Chipped enamel is still safe to use, and rust is not harmful to health. If you see chips, make sure that you dry thoroughly after use and coat oil over the chipped areas to prevent rust.
