Enamel color change -heat related

We just installed a new VC Aspen -Bordoux red. We have made 2 small fires per the instructions -max of 500 degress at stovetop. We noticed the color changes almost to a brown at 500 degrees. When it was cooled off the next day it looked red again. Is this a normal function of the colored enamels?

This is normal. Our old Intrepid used to do that every time. As long as it isn't glowing orange or bright red I wouldn't worry too much about the color changes.
