I know in Gemany they use something like this to pour booze over it, light it on fire and drink it. It's a Christmas drink call Fire Punch (Feuerzangenbowle) and knocks you on your butt!

I hate the mesh floor. It's terrible and has sagged bad over the years. May have it sold as I'm out of room and don't use it that often anymore.

I don't like that I can't install my Scala easily to the N44 or the fact that it's not a flip up modular. Slick piece, but not for me. I am leaning heavily towards the N104 or N91
