We're just made too wimpily. I'd like to talk to God about our design. Maybe an exoskeleton, redundant air-ways, hearts.... guess this is getting off-topic.
I thought about that before I posted. Since the ball is in my hand, I feel it snag when it does. And, in my experiance, pieces are hard to miss seeing. I've learned to start in the middle and work towards the edges to reduce snaging. Good point about how sharp the pieces are. I only use them before cooking fish, otherwise my grill is seasoned enough that things don't stick much.
