Thinking about selling my Mini...

So, with the addition of the XL that SWMBO surprised me with, I now have 4 eggs. No way I would ever use all of these at once.

I see the Large and XL for bigger cooks when we entertain or around the holidays. Which leaves the small and mini... I figure I can do everything on a small that I can do on a mini, but not vise versa...

What do you guys think?

  • Makes perfect sense and you can transport small for tailgating?

    I have 4 eggs as well and it has never crossed my mind get rid of one just because I probably would never have all 4 smoking at the same time. Each serves a unique role and besides the way prices have increased over the last 3 years- ESPECIALLY with the mini - it might be smarter to stash away that mini for a year in case you change your mind.

    Don't  sell it, just get a medium to complete the set.

    You have the same combo of four that I have. Rather than sell one, I would rather buy a medium and complete the Egg family (at least until the XXL comes out).


    My mini is primarily our weekday quick cooks for two Egg and I'd have real hard time parting with it (or any of mine).

    If you are a golfer, you would know not to get rid of it. What are woods/ irons/ and wedges without the putter?( If you do decide to get rid of it, how much you want for it?)

    Sell the Small and keep the Mini. That's what I did and never looked back. Now with two Larges and the Mini, it gets 75% of the work daily.

    If portability is any issue, as it is with me, the mini wins hands-down.  Keep it.
