Caja China vs. Caja Asadora???

kristabat | Aug 26, 2009 12:45 PM

I'm trying to figure out if there's any huge difference between La Caja China and the cheaper La Caja Asadora (by Bene Casa). When comparing the largest Caja China to La Casa Asadora they seem comparable in size and components--each coming with the same components and accessories. La Caja Asadora is slightly shorter, but I don't see why that would make a difference. The only thing I can find that *might* make a difference is what they're lined with. La Caja China is described as being lined with "Marine Aluminum Gauge .032" while sites describing La Caja Asadora say that it is lined with "galvanized metal" , "steel", or "stainless steel". Unfortunately, I don't have enough knowledge about metals to a) tell if those things are actually all the same or b) if it makes a difference if they're indeed different.

Any help anyone could give me would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
