Title: Daisy wheels history
Post by: Schaefd2 on April 15, 2018, 06:35:33 PM
Probably a quick question, so I kinda hate to start a new thread, but oh well.

The age guide says the one touch system debuted on the premium kettles in 1983, but werenít standard on all kettles until 2000.

I think I know the answer, but I guess I just need it confirmed from someone who knows for sure, but Iím assuming daisy wheels existed up til 1999? In my head, the daisy wheel was always for older kettles so having them as recent as the 90s sounds odd to me.

Yes...though oddly enough you donít see them pop up too much, but there were daisy wheels through the late 90ís.

My first kettle was a hand-me-down 1997 Black 22Ē my father-in-law purchased new and it had daisy wheels (and it wasnít a Bar-b kettle).

Thanks for sharing. There is a 10 month old ad in NW Pennsylvania with what looks like a 90s three wheeler with a racer triangle. It is in great condition.

Not to mess with your head even more but..
Here in Europe we can still walk into a store and pick up a new 2018 Bar-B-Kettle Daisy wheel grill.
Itís the first step UP from the compact grills before you move up to the One-Touch.

Holy shit! Daisy wheels and a taco lid. Dogs and cats, living together. Don't cross the streams!
