I wanted to add a couple of things to this review. When you unpack the unit, it smells pretty funky from the packing stuff.
Make sure you give it a good burn to get all the funk off. Also, on mine, the paint turned from a shiny black to a dull black after the burn. No big deal, but it wasn't even all over. May take a couple of more cooks to achieve the uniformivity.
I was going to buy one for my brother for his birthday, but they are all sold out in my area and also in his area, which is northern FL.
Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.
