Product description (or lack of one) is misleading!
on January 20, 2009
This product seemed to be a bargain: 4 different smoking chips for under $14. The product description on Amazon: "Cameron Cookware Alder, Hickory, Oak, and Cherry Wood Smoking Chips, Set of 4"
That's it. Nothing more, except for the image, which shows four plastic containers. Your mind says these are large containers. Seems like you're getting a lot of chips. Nope. You're not getting a lot and they're not even chips.
Here's what's missing from the description:
1) Volume. The text does not say, and the image does not indicate that the containers are 1 pint each. No more than the size of a coffee mug!
2) Chip size. These are not "chips" at all. They are sawdust - literally.
3) Required hardware. Apparently these "chips" are to be used with the Cameron Smoker Box. This also would have been a helpful tip in the description.
I read a glowing customer review of this product which said how wonderful it was to get a product that was exactly as described. What description is he referring to? Maybe my web browser needs an upgrade!
