    I think Boomer works for the company, wish he would just come out and say it.  It's like reading a phony Amazon review.  

    They should function very similarly to aluminum GrillGrates (got on a Groupon special, WooHoo).  The purpose is basically the same, flare-up protection, different kinds of heat than just natural convection, maybe better grill marks.

    I love cast iron, but don't need it for grates really.  It has a greater mass and heat capacity, so will take longer to heat up and then stay hot for longer.  With an egg, we have NO problems with it staying hot, but I want to be able to cook sooner and change my temps faster.
