This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

    I'm currently in a fight with PayPal, trying to get my money back as a seller, and am less than satisfied to say the least. PayPal's buyer and seller protection clauses are junk.
  • I know this is old. But how did it turn out for y'all? I would have boight one with no hopes of ever seeing it. PayPal has always came through for me and its only 200$. (Not to throw away but a sweet deal and almost 90% chance of Having the money refunded if its scam)


    Very curious as to how this went down

    I am in market for mini it small. Mini is a good fit for now but small in a few years. I can get a small for 500. I would buy 5 for 200!

  • @chubbs  Ha you it'd be quiet the steal!!! There are two threads about this particular sale and neither one of them show any results.....

    You havnt bought a mini yet? sitll debating? I've got a small awaiting pickup, but am interested to see a mini in person.  I'm thinking the small now and later down the road add an XL when we have a permanent home and maybe a mini for taking on flying trips if the small wont fit in the air plane

    It was crazy eBay actually gave me the sellers number and I spoke to her several times. She maintained the story that they were on their way but no one ever got one.

    I see the same thing on Craigslist concerning 4 wheelers. The deal is always so tempting, but it is a scam.

    This is why i love this forum - a constant source of inspiration. Am plotting to get a small to travel with, but your mini-on-the-plane idea has potential!

    For my own edification, how do you plan to do this?. i think I saw somewhere that the mini weighs about 45lbs. I think the max weight for a single piece of checked luggage is 50lbs. Will you be taking it as a carryon? I would be worried about baggage handlers breaking a mini in checked luggage. I guess taking it as a carryon would make the most sense?

    If this is feasible, then SWMBO won't be happy when she hears about what i want now...

    [sorry - back on topic now].

    @MrCookingNurse, nope not yet. My dealer is giving me 20% whichever one I want. They only have old ones in right now and likely wont have new ones until April. Trying to decide what to do. A mini is really small in person, but think it would be great for wife and I right now. We have a 7 month old son so in a few years the small would be better. May just go ahead and get the small and then build a table for small and large

    i guess i should have clarified, I ment when i fly my dad's plane, not commercial! I would die if I saw someone carrying the mini on a plane!!! I was gonna just strap it in the back seat.

    I made a table for my large and made it big enough and have everything set up for a small on the other side just have to cut the hole.  only problem is i dont think i will have the work space i want.  it all added up on the sketch.  might snag a small and a nest, nest would be nice when camping, or get a carten or make something else, still might place the small in the table with the large but not sure yet. 

    we are a family of 3, baby is 1 year old as of last week and started eating egg'd food last month. I just cant see cooking on the mini when im home very much. Im strong enough and capable of traveling with my large so a small is what im set on.

    @MrCookingNurse: I see. You got my hopes up there for a minute. Glad I didn't try to be the guy who try to get on a commercial flight with a mini tucked under my arm - might have some explaining to do to the TSA :)

    Re: your setup - what about just buying the nest and rolling it next to the table when needed? You will still have your work space as well as have a mobile egg for camping etc like you mentioned.

    Yea that's what I'm leaning towards is egg and nest. Or cut the hole and have a large tile to cover it when egg is out and have work surface


    The rule of thumb for Cary on mini is great grandmaws ashes are in it and ya a burial urn. Right @mickey
