It came with a cover like a full sized grill.....Here's the problem......In big white letters it says "cover must be removed before use!!!! Can you freaking beleive that?

    That's more of a measure by the company so when someone stupid does do that, they cannot sue the company for millions of dollars.

    The fact that they can sue for a million dollars is the problem...

    Exactely. The lawsuit lottery MUST be stopped. In almost every other country the losing side has to pay the legal expenses of BOTH parties.


    I also saw a window shade that you put in the windshield of your car to keep the sun out....."Remove before operating vehicle."
