Charcoal Basket Options

I’ve read most of the threads and the reviews on the KAB. Looking on Amazon, there are several options that are half the cost of the KAB. Has anyone had any experience with a basket other than KAB?

    Make sure you are comparing equivalent products. Materials, metal thickness, workmanship.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    Kick Ash Basket is the original, patented, has a warranty, and is owned by a die hard BGE guy that you will find at a lot of Eggfests.  All the others are knock offs made in China.

    Where are the Kick Ash Baskets now being made?
    It doesn't say on the website anymore that I can find.

    I believe Trompo King and KA bowl are made in India too. Decent quality IMO.
