I used water for my very first cook and it was fine. Next cook, couldn't get it up high enough, so I dumped the water out. Made a helluva difference. Made a mess of the bowl, too
Third cook, I put foil wrapped saucer in. Better, still messy. Bought a wide roll of foil and put a new sheet on before every cook.
