Default used egg question

Guy says it is 2 years old but it appears to have been lit with lighter fluid. Would you still buy it?

I heard it's hard to remove the funk. Some say it'll take several high heat burns to remove it, 700F +. I wouldn't buy a used ceramic regardless if lighter fluid was used in it.

How can you tell by the appearance?

Is there any lighter fluid smell? Did you ask the owner if they used lighter fluid?

The ceramic is porous, so it will absorb some, but it will go away with time.
