Great service

John -

Ordered 2 rods for my rt590 and when they arrived only 1 was in the package. Called up and got pushed to voicemail so I thought I called late and would try again tomorrow. Watching tv I revived a call from them and explained the issue and he apologized explaining he was sending my missing rod out. Customer service is great cause I did not leave a message and yet they returned my call and took care of the issue right away. Thank you RecTeq.

Lights Twice as Fast as the Old Ones!!!

Huggmeister -

Bought this to replace my old steel rods that kept burning out in my Rt-680. I was told on the phone that this would slip right in, but alas, it did not. The old igniter style tube was too small to hold the new igniter. Rather than buying a new pot, I made a new tube for it to set in out of 3/8 black iron and welded it in. Inserted the igniter and fired her up. This igniter lights a lot faster than the old style, and hopefully it will last me a lifetime. Thank guys...

The best igniter rod for a Rec Tec. I went through 2 of the older style in a few years. This one has lasted 2 years and hundreds of cooks and it works like new. Great products, great parts and the best customer service.
