Went To Costco To Buy Vision Komado - What I Saw Changed My Mind
So our Costco has the Vision Kamado grill on clearance for only $399.97 which is an AMAZING price of course. We went to Costco with money in hand ready to buy and sure enough, they still had a few left at that price.
However, we decided against buying it based on the unit on the sales floor. Now I know that sales floor units get beat up a ton but I had just gotten done looking at BGE demo models that get beat up a lot also.
In terms of the Costco Vision Komado, I was very disappointed in the quality. There was already major chipping on both the outside top of the grill and even the inside as well. (various spots). The BGE had no chipping.
In addition, opening and closing the Vision lid did not seem anywhere near as sturdy as doing so on the BGE.
Lastly, the wheels/cart on the Vision were much more flimsy than the BGE's.
I really wanted to buy the Vision Komado but just couldn't pull the trigger because of what I mentioned above. At the same time, it's about $1,000 for a comparable BGE and I don't see spending that right now either so I think I'll hold off on a ceramic cooker purchase. When I do pull the trigger, it will be a BGE.
