The outer diameter is smaller than the DCS version.
The wall thinkness of the ceramic is dramatically thinner.
Basically these will not have the radiation ability of the stock items.
At 50 cents a piece, a cheap knock off would be fine- at $3 a piece I expect and EXACT copy. (Note, direct DCS (aka Fisher and Paykel) replacements are only 3.99 a piece- not woth the minimal discount to replace every year!)
Oh, head to order twice- they shipped in an envelope (both times) and half were broken
Does the job (I think) but these ceramic rods are significantly lighter and thinner walled than the originals that came with my grill. I have no idea how long they will last. I didn't have that many broken rods, so I used the originals in the center of the grill and the replacements around the far edges, where I don't cook much. Not sure if the lighter, thinner rods affect the way the grill cooks. So far, they seem fine, but they are definitely NOT the quality of the originals...
Some of the tubes were broken upon arrival. The OD was slightly smaller and the wall thickness was less than the OEM. But they did work, just not the same as orginal.
