    gosh Tink, I wonder if the smell was just because it was new? Afraid I'd not be able to eat it at all I'm pretty "scent sensitive" this apt, while fancy and a true luxury apt had an AC flood when we first got here and the moldy smell almost drove me out to a hotel until they got it cleared out. Even now, with everything fixed, air purifiers running and several deep cleanings, I still walk around sniffing and saying I smell residual. It drives DH nuts.

    I know exactly what you're talking about! I too am hyper sensitive when it comes to smells. This "moldy gym sock" smell is more than I can take. I can still smell it in the house, but what's really driving me nuts is that it somehow creeped its way from the house out to the garage and then inside my car! Windows and top were all up, so it shouldn't be able to do that. Today I drove DD to and from school, and the whole day my car smelled like wet dog as well as moldy laundry. We don't even have pets. icon_confused.gif
    It's just gross!

    The thing is, I don't know if the volcanic rock just smells nasty when it's heated up, or if the pan has to be broken in first, or if the fact that it's been hung on the wall for 40 years just means it's soaked up all the smells of someone's house.
    It had a loop of twine tied to the back of it, and after using it once I could see a difference in color, so I'm positive it was never used; just hung on the wall.

    Gosh Tink, that's awful, maybe you could heat it up on the outside grill next to see if the smell is now gone?

    I wish it smelled just when it's heated up. Now it smells bad just walking by it. I put it out in the garage yesterday to try to air it out. Today I'll try to clean it again; it turned completely black on the inside and slightly blackened on the bottom after the first use. I couldn't get it clean as it was when I got it, so that's another reason I think it was never used. But after the second use, it got a really burned on, charred and bubbled up crust on the inside. Totally gross. Looks like the bottom of my oven after my apple pie spilled over and caught on fire one year! icon_lol.gif

    You know I'm wondering Tink, if just maybe it's one that wasn't meant for using - but decorating. I know some of the tangines are like that.

    Yeah, who knows? I can't imagine anyone wanting to smell up their house like this on purpose.
    Funny thing though: While writing my demo thread for it, I realized that all the magazine ads I'd collected for it from the 70's, it was never priced more than $9.99 or so.
    It was like the first "As Seen On TV" gadget! rotfl.gif

    So funny, but then I do love those TV infomercials, so many ideas seem to get their starts there, some good and many wierd.

    That is so true. Some of the ideas are definitely weird, and some are just plain stupid, but not ALL of them are bad ideas. icon_smile.gif

    6 year old DD is one of those kids that can see a commercial once and then recite it to you days later. She's always saying things like, "Mom, I need to write another letter to Santa. I want a ............, and all he has to do is make 3 easy payments of $19.99 plus shipping and handling."
    I don't know how she does it either, everything we watch besides football is on the DVR and we usually fast forward through any commercials. icon_confused.gif
