Default Is Enamel kettle good for brewing ?

Hi, I just want to know if Enamel kettle can be use for brewing beer ? Because I found one in a store near my appartment and it's like way under the price of a stainless steel kettle.

Is nobody know about enamel for brewing ?

For an example of what I talk about here's a link (The one I want to buy is exactly like this but 36 quarts, not 21) : http://www.homehardware.ca/en/rec/in...pt/R-I4017076#

Thanks

There is nothing wrong with an enamel pot as long as there are no chips/rust on the inside. I used one for the first year of my brewing
