peeling paint

My Weber Genesis Silver B (Home Depot 2001) gas grill has paint that is starting to peel inside the cover. The grill is used infrequently and has been kept from the elements. Does this sound like a manufacturing flaw or just the way things are made now?

Hi: firedads

The honest answer is the way things are made. Eye appeal for selling purposes applies to the outside, not the inside. Thus the inside does not get a primer coat, if painted on the exterior and or a baked on internal finish. Saves bucks for cost cutting.

Reasoning is logical from the view of mfg. Looks nice in the showroom. Makes no difference once used since the inside is not often viewed by onlookers at our BBQ parties and a condition that is expected or they assume we have become acustom to.

Sounds like a lot of BS granted but is what some mfg's thinking is really all or partly about. All of which does effect many others consumer products we buy.

What the eye does not see does not matter is the concensus.
