strength needed to lift the lid
We are soon going to be buying a BGE and we went to a local dealer to look at the various sizes.
My wife was concerned about the strength required to lift the lid. It seems very heavy and she wasn't sure she'd be able to lift it easily. We did try the XL and it seems to have a different hinge design which makes it easier to lift.
Is the XL easier to lift? Do the large and XL model get easier to lift as time goes on and the hinge gets used?
