I was looking for a smoker because we have a bee problem in our roof and I'd read that if you smoke them over time, it'll trigger a natural reaction for them to eat up their store of honey in preparation for flight (smoke = possibility of fire in nature) and file out. Not wanting to kill the bees we tried to smoke them out. I bought some smoker chips before switching to pine needles that were in my backyard. The smoker was easy to setup and the hook was really handy. The tin gets discoloured immediately from first use, but I imagine it'll happen to all smokers. Based on how thin the metal felt, I was worried that the flame would burn through the metal, but this smoker lasted being nearly continuously lit for 5 straight daylight days now and it's staying together fine with no signs of the metal being burned through (smoker was refilled about every 20 mins.) Be careful when using this smoker because it gets VERY hot. Even with padded bee gloves on it was sometimes too hot to touch. I ended up switching to oven mitts. The other thing to keep in mind is that flames can shoot out of the bottom port.
While I was unfortunately unable to persuade the bees to bail, the part about a lot of smoke getting them to eat up their stores was true. When we finally opened up the roof after smoking the bees for 4 days the combs were very clean and didn't appear to have any honey in them. But the bees were still around in copious quantities. Overall, for my purposes this smoker was perfect and at a great price point, but if I were to keep a smoker for long term use (for example if I was a bee keeper) I'd probably opt to pay a little more to get a sturdier feeling smoker with thicker feeling metal.
