!!! I have a few different lubricants I use on roasters that can
handle high temps and don't cost that - I am sure that is amazing
grease, but since it is not a food contact point it seems there might
be other options. Glad to see this topic come up though, I didn't
realize that there was an issue with lubrication, esp on early models.
