Warning: Junky Chefmaster Indoor BBQ Grill

ClaireWalter | Jan 4, 2008 06:23 AM

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 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.
