What you have sounds like a porcelain finish on a metal top, if so then you should be able to polish off the rust with a chome polish or even baking soda and water. Chips can be filled with slow cureing epoxy and a small amount of oil base tint, no more paint than 10% of the total mix. Once dry smooth with 600 grit wet dry sand paper and water, follow with 800 grit and then 1000 grit wet dry sand paper. I sometimes use a saturate solution of Oxalic acid to remove rust, when dry rinse with hot water and then wipe with alcohol, next wax to help prevent new rust.
