Deceptive listing; item is NOT stainless steel...
on October 31, 2012
This just arrived, so I haven't even used it yet, but I am not at all pleased with this product.
It is advertised as stainless steel, and it certainly is not. It is some light weight material, I would guess aluminum by its weight, except that it has a very badly applied chrome-colored finish, and I see no reason why anyone would bother to add such a cheap exterior coating to aluminum. And when I say badly applied, I mean the surface is irregular, with bumps and bubbles, etc. Nothing about it speaks of any quality whatsoever. Moreover, I would not have purchased it if I had known that it was not stainless steel, which, please note, ir is clearly stated to be in the listing.
Since it would cost more to return it than it's worth, I'm stuck with this bogus product. That being the case, as it will have no direct contact with food, I will try it, though I don't expect it to last long; my guess is once the cheap paint peels it will let water in, and it will quickly rust.
Now that I have it in hand, neither the box, nor the product itself, claims it is stainless steel, so this deception is on the seller for misrepresenting the product in the listing.
I purchase quite a bit from Amazon, for the most part with good results, but I wish Amazon would do more to ensure that sellers post accurate information when listing items for sale.
