I had to pay extra 65 bucks on ebay because costco canada won't ship to the US. I have not been able to get this over 750 degrees (as advertised). Highest yet is around 740. I have to keep turning on the pre-heat timer to get it to stay on and after it's been on for sometime, the temp will continuously go down the longer it's on. i cooked my first pie on it within 20 mins of heating for that reason. cooking more than one could be and issue. I don't know if im missing something, but I did a descent first test run. the bottom crust resulted in a picture perfect char, but the top edge of the crust was neglected. I will try the pie liner method and post pics if I get better results.
