A great stand but not a great lid lifter
Reviewed in the United States on August 20, 2019
I took of one star from this product because it claims to that it can be used as a lid lifer. I can be used that way but with conditions.
One, if you've got a large number of coals on the top of the oven you really should wear a protective glove . The short length of the stand when used as a lifter puts your hand very close to the coals.
Two, the design allows you to hook the lid but it easy for the lid to rock on the hook. This can let ash fall into your food or for coals to roll off the lid.
Three, if you are removing the lid (not just rotating it) then you need a good place to put the lid. In most cases the best place to put it is on the stand that you have in your hand. Awkward.
So, in summary, as a stand this is a great item, it is sturdy and well made. As a lid lifter it will work but your are much better off getting a dedicated lid lifter. Check out YouTube for some great lifter design comparisons.
