Warning: Junky Chefmaster Indoor BBQ Grill

For quickly grilling something (fish, marinated boneless chicken breasts, sausages, etc.) when there's snow between the door and the Big Green Egg, we use one of those round, two-piece stove-top grills. (Bottom part is a donut-like drop pan to hold water; the top is a grill that fits over it). We had to be fareful to our trusty quality a few weeks ago, when I slathered some fancy BBQ sauce onto fish. Even tho' I had oiled the grill well, I have brushed the sauce on at the very end. I didn't, and the combination of sauce and bits of salmon skin just about fused to the grill. We soaked it and steel wooled it, and I think that only a chisel might have removed it.

This is all a preamble to the waring. My husband, who is far fonder of amazon.com than I am, ordered a Chefmaster Smokeless Barbeque Grill. Our old one was coated cast aluminum. The new piece of junque is some kind of thin, coated pressed metal. There is a two-year limited warranty against defects in workmanship or materials. This "bargain" cost about $8. A defective item returned to Chefmaster also requires a $5 handling fee. I don't suppose too many customers bother.
