I bought a Member's Mark "stainless steel" grill 4.5 years ago. I bought the vinyl protective cover & used it, too. The exterior looks fine. Problem is: the guts have completely rusted out to the point that they are crumbling.
I have photos that I wanted to send to Member's Mark, but they don't appear to exist. It's just a 'promo' name for Sam's. It looks like I would have to send my complaint to the manufacturer in Taiwan (Grand Hall). Yea! Right!
I guess I'll just put this piece of *** on the street & buy something cheaper. At least when it rusts out, I can get a couple more for the same total price.
Beware of "stainless steel" grills from Sam's.
Monetary Loss: $650.
