We have customers who purchased our 100% stainless burn barrel replacement models that are still working like new after 12 years. When we started producing incinerators in 1999, we offered models with a steel base ring. Although it costs less, the steel base ring eventually rusted out. However, the stainless steel parts are still in working order. We discontinued using regular steel over 12 years ago and our customer base is much happier.                   http://shrsl.com/y2lg
