Re: Cast iron vs steel enamel finish
As Ron said, the finish is the same, what makes the cast more durable is that it expands and contracts at about the same rate as the enamel. When dropping things, it doesn't deflect, less chance of dings and chips. Steel tubs expand and contract faster than the enamel which can cause bubbles and chipping, it also deflects when you drop something, which will cause it to release the enamel at point of impact.
