Has anyone ever used a "Fakir Cook"? [moved from Chicago board]

I have seen this product on a European cooking product website, and wanted to know if it was worth the pricetag (abour $450). It's a type of grill with spikes that you turn upside down on a grill until they're red hot, then flip it over and cook your meat by placing it on the spikes, I think. Any comments?

  1. Sounds dangerous! What ethnicity is this?

    Be careful

    1. The J.B. Prince catalogue has them. You can search "fakir" and it will come up. I think it was invented by a chef in Spain. I came across it while looking into El Bulli.
