Rated 4 out of 5 by old fart Not Bad For The Price!!
Yes, as others have stated, the outside of the basket is very rough, almost comparable to a box grater but not really that bad, but it is rough and a stiff bristled brush is my recommendation for cleaning it. The inside is very smooth and the included reversible insert and chicken holder do a lot to redeem the quality of this item. If you can get past the rough exterior (didn't they say that about Clark Gable, Clint Eastwood, Burt Reynolds, etc.),?? you will see that this set is a 'steal of a deal' for the low price!! I have a Cook-Air wood fired grill 13" diameter and this pan fits fine using the basket and/or grill/griddle feature. Since I only have smaller 'table-top' sizes of grills I cannot attest to the chicken holder feature, but as a cook I can see that it would work well in my electric stove oven and also for those who have one of those big honking gas or charcoal grills!! If you're considering it, for the low price, why not go for it as I did!! It will work great for small items like veggies, shrimp, etc.
