I purchased a cast iron grill from Walmart. It is Ozark brand. The instructions say that it can be used on a stove top or on an open fire. I was using it on my stove top (for the first time) and after being exposed to the heat for less than 2 min, I heard a loud bang that scared me and my fiance. The grill had broken in two. The blast was loud enough to shake the electric heat sources on my stove loose. If I had been close to it, I have no doubt it would have caused bodily harm. There are absolutely no warning labels on the product.

I still have it just as proof -- it is not useable. I contacted Walmart and they did not respond to me at all.
