Welp, it looks like it's time for a new fire bowl for my Vision Classic B, or to at least make Vision aware of my issue. I emailed Vision's help account earlier this morning and we'll see what we get back.
I’ve owned the grill for a little over a year and I first noticed small, hairline cracks in the fire bowl maybe a couple months ago, which I knew occur normally. Unfortunately, these small cracks have developed into what you can see in the pictures. The cracks are all the way through the bowl at this point, and the two cracks are growing directly across from each other in the bowl, so I'm a little concerned with the structural integrity.
I’m not familiar with their warranty process, but I've read that they're pretty good.
Anybody with any similar experiences?
I'm new to this forum, but as I'm in the process of shopping for a kamado style grill, I've found the posts here to be invaluable in putting all the the different brands in perspective. I'm considering the Saffire, but don't see any current posts regarding this grill. Does anyone have updated info for me to digest? I can plainly see the hardware is superior, but what I can't know is the quality of the ceramic. So here is another question....is all ceramic created equal? Is BGE ceramic the same as Saffire ceramic and Kamado Joe ceramic? At this point I've narrowed the search down to BGE, Kamado Joe and Saffire. However, this is still a wide open field for me. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
