i fired up the bge for the first time this season (i'm a bad egghead... it's been since the fall...) and at some point, i noticed odd spots of flaking of the ceramic in 5-6 spots.  see photos.  the flakes themselves are very thin (penny-width).  The surface left behind where the flakes came off is very rough.  Any ideas?  I plan to email the mothership too.

    How hot did you get it?
    I could only imagine that humidity got to it and you heated the egg too quickly.
    Its a good idea to warm up the egg slowly after a long time of not use.
    But then, i might be wrong!

  • definitely more than soot.  unfortunately. 

    I heated it slowly; 30 min, less than 300 before getting hotter.

    Looks like moisture froze and caused the flaking.
