The hinges on my new small egg are extremely tight - in fact only open say 90 degrees vs the straight out 180 degrees. It binds in that position so I don't have to use a tool to unlock, just tug the dome down. Will time and use take care of this and some day I'll wish it was like this? BTW my wife says the two eggs look cute side by side in the table, but I do a Tim the Tool Man grunt when I think of the fire power now vs the old Ducane, which is hiding around the corner and wimpering!
