    And all grades of steel are in fact steel by definition suitability for a particular use is a different matter ....most of the metal assemblies are likely imported.

    One can verify this by having an account at a particular site that gathers all bills of laden that pass through customs (they become public documents at that point) here in the US, this includes stuff offloaded in other countries but entering the US.

    I haven't gone looking for Canadian imports but have a funny feeling such might be the case there as well TLHinCanada.

    I guess I should have added more. Not trying to bash any particular country. A few years ago watched a news program on lamps that caught on fire. They went out and bought some lamps from the big box stores. What they found was either there was no UL/CSA sticker or the sticker was there but there was no certification. Since then there have been other cases of such fraud; pet food, vitamins, etc. It would not suprise me to find that they are downgrading the specs on material. What company is going to pay to have the steel tested in the final product to see if it meets contract. Its just taken for granted that materials are up to spec. Pretty difficult to find something that is made in USA or Canada anymore. Just about everything is made in China. Interesting story on the web about a family trying to use only domestic products for a year. Had to give up coffee because there are no coffee makers made domestically anymore.

    I know a lot of you never liked the idea of these units....personally I think it was a fantastic idea that suffered from faulty execution. I wish they would have refined the design a bit to get it to work properly. This could have been a great solution for people living in cities, or renting....or even just getting some extra heat to a cold spot in the house.

    Why was there so much negativity regarding this in the first place? Was it a dislike of the product execution, or a disdain for the idea itself?

    I liked the idea, just not the place of manufacture and their seemingly lack of quality control when it's something that needs it in a very high degree. When they screw up dog food and infant formula, your homes safety is probably even less of a concern.
    Maybe if importer had the firepot manufactured in the US where the product would have been easier to check the quality.
    Hope this thread does not get to negative that I have to close it. Have not had to close one for a long time which is a good thing.
