6 Chrome Plated Flat Sided Barbecue Kebab Cooking Skewers 1 "Plating not right" Ms Robertson 10 April 2015 I've just bought these and was washing them in hot soapy water as instructed, but it appears most of these skewers have a rough surface - I can only assume there is something wrong with the plating, as I imagined these to be completely smooth... It's catching on my micro-fibre sponge and I'm not sure they will get a good clean after food has been cooked on them. I'd be worried about the coating ending up in the food too. Not great. A note from the team We're sorry to hear you've experienced this problem and will be in touch soon to help.
