    So jealous! I bought a large off Craigslist and needs updating as well. Has been sitting the last 5 months or so without being touched. I have purchased everything I need for updating other than the band. Where did you get the band? Was hoping to find a newer style used band. But thats seems to be like a needle in a haystack. Thats my biggest delay right now. Thanks!
  • Looks great. I upgraded mine also. I also have a daisy wheel that came with the egg that does not fit properly. I may have to spring for the medium DW.
    I use my small for most cooks, unless it will not fit in the small, then I fire up the medium.
    Happy cooking :laugh:
