Yes got it about a week ago.
I'm now waiting for an oven grill and grill basket from Amazon which I ordered last week.

Amazon.com: Mr Bar B Q 06034X Platinum Prestige Stainless Steel Wok Topper: Home & Garden

Amazon.com: Steven Raichlen Best of Barbecue Cast Iron Tuscan Barbecue Grill: Home & Garden

This oven really is starting to get expensive.

I would have bought these locally if I could have found them. Those grill baskets can't be found anywhere and the cast iron grill is sturdy where as the only ones I could find had folded legs and more flimsy. I didn't think they would be suitable for an oven as you have to drag it in and out and folded legs type are designed to be placed over a fire and left there.

That's the tuscan grill. I use mine a lot. I don't remember paying 45 bucks for mine, though. Metal gets more and more expensive. I'm about ready to send anything silver in the shop to the scrapper: AG is getting silly expensive. I wouldn't think that would be true of cast iron though.

Yeah it's the only one I could find that ships overseas and believe it all not US$45 was a good price compared to over sites.
I also couldn't believe the amount of different grill baskets available in the US round, square, rectangle, stainless steel, enamel etc etc but I couldn't even find one located in OZ. Don't know if they are called something different over here but I had no luck.
Anyway that tuscan grill will be well used so long after I have forgotten about the price I will still be enjoying it.

I forgot about that place I've been in there before pricing peels but didn't look for the Tuscan grill or grill basket as I wasn't looking for them at the time.
I should pop in just to see as it's just around the corner from me.
Then again maybe I shouldn't

Hi OscarA,

I've also received my broom head piece, just wondering what you used as the handle????

The only thing i can find at bunnings has a "plastic" screw component,,, the only metals ones are at the paints section but the whole thing is metal and i don't know how it wil lreact under high temps?

Anyone have suggestions on where to find a long (~1.5 m) wooden broom handle with a metall screw piece?

Dear Gummz
Buy the metal one its not going to be in the heat long enough to heat up anyway. I've a metal handle on a poker and it stays cool at the hand end...wouldn't grab it at the other however

I'm still building my oven so haven't bothered putting a handle on it yet.
I agree with Dave in that the metal handles in the paint section you talk about should be fine. They're only in the oven for a few minutes at a time if that long so it shouldn't heat up to much.
