I love the look of it and the aluminum gives it a very study feel. It fits well with the modern look of my other kitchen gadgets.
All I had to do once I got it was install a few double a batteries and hook up the hose. As soon as I turned on the fan and lit the wood chips, it started billowing out smoke immediately and it was very quiet. After I was done smoking my pork chops, I let it sit for awhile and out the smoker back in the bag and into a cupboard.
I would highly recommend this device. The personalized touch from the company was very appreciated.
