It does complicate importation. Domestically, for them, that's another matter entirely.

Re: Origo vs. Cookmate?

I used Cookmate gimbals with my Origo 3000 because the Origo gimbals cost twice as much.

There is a difference in quality, the Cookmate holes were more poorly finished and the instructions made no sense at all. They do the job though.

I'd rather buy a used Origo than a new Cookmate if you are looking for a whole stove.
