First off, thanks to everyone for the replies on getting my frozen egg open. It took half of the Sunday Columbus news to do it but I got the lump started.

30 minutes later I lift the lid!!! Oh Joy!! :P My egg that had 8 inches of snow and ice on it and hasn't been used in a month is open!!! So, In my excitement I see my cast iron top, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!! :ohmy: BIG mistake, that SOB is HOT! So i proceed to drop it on my pretty ceramic tile I have on my table, which is now in 10 pieces. Here I sit with an Icepack on my 3 fingers I burned. Hey, on the bright side my egg is lit and we will be having "The Chicken for dinner tonight. :P

    Glad the egg is open, but seems to me you are not starting out so good... Hope the day gets better. Take Care.

    Lizard Dragger, I was laughing and crying at the same time as I read your post......I bet you were just crying. :unsure:

    Ouch! I've done the same thing and know it burns like a "B"...I can honestly say, that is a lesson learned and I've only done it once! Hope your chicken was fabulous. ;)

    LD, ouch that hurts, hope The Chicken made up for it. Not sure if cracking the tile is as bad as landing the HOT plate setter on the brand new gasket :( , guess how I know :blush:

    That would be funny if I didn't do similar things all the time. I am a danger to myself most days. :huh:
  • Ouch! and some broken tile - shoot.

    But!! Now you have an eggcellent story to tell, right? I figure accidents like this are sort of cool, your equipment builds "character" and you have a story to tell!

    Kinda like talking about scars and tattoos, ya know?
