Yes, I saw that the material was rolled steel, but that usually refers to the process and I assumed that it was stainless rolled steel.

Kiwihunter,
I fully agree with you. The biltong hooks are great. Every South African Shop sells them.
I usually soak them in hot soapy water for a few days for easy cleaning as they always finish up discoloured after smoking and drying my biltong strips.
If I am in a hurry, I put them in the utensil basket in the dishwasher.
Cheers,
Jan.
