Cast Iron piece for Egg. Needs TLC. Is it salvageable?

Found this at my parents house. What would be the best way to clean it up, or should I just buy new? Thanks!

    It's cast iron underneath the areas the enamel is missing - nufin' wrong with cast iron. Or enamel.  Scrub it, wash it and cook some food.

    If you want a pretty inside, you could sandblast the enamel off it, polish and season.  But it's easier to buy new, unless you have that equipment.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    Thanks. I'm gonna throw it on the Egg on my next cook and try to burn it clean and take some fine grade steel wool to it.
