It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

    Are you asking what to offer? Gaskets cost 30 or so and are easy to install. Hardest part is getting old gasket gunk off with acetone to make sure it adheres. How old is the small? Good shape? Pics?

    I don't have pics. I have been looking for a deal to add a Small to the family and someone is posting this one for sale on Craigslist, claims it has been used a few times, in good condition, but "gasket needs to be glued back on".

    How much does the seller want for it? Does it come with a plate setter? Nest? Table? Gaskets are not that big a deal you can look up plenty of posts on the forum and Youtube to help you through the installation.

    Gaskets are a non issue.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I figure the warranty is worth about 1/3 of the price of a new egg.  So knock that off the local new price.  Then, gasket.  $30.  take that off.  Then it's used, and just walking it out of the showroom makes it depreciate.  So maybe $50 off.  Condition deduction.  dealer price x 0.66 - 30 - 50.  whatever that is is a fair price.

    Well, it has feet and the older handle so it is at least a year old. Another indicator of age would be the cooking grid (SS vs porcelain coated). If I remember correctly, the SS grid came out in 2011. Check if it has a spring assist band. Of course check for cracks. As others pointed out, the gasket is pretty minor.

    Gasket is a none issue, that's already been addressed. Your warranty is toast, big deal. Even if its pristine, you've gotta knock it down cause of lack of warranty. I just paid $500 even for a SBGE, I'd pay $300 for it without warranty, if it looks worn and a few years old, your not gonna get much from me for it. I've seen them on Craigslist for around $400, that's not a deal at all.

    B-) >$300 lets talk


    [-X <$400 no deal


    \m/ >$200 I'd run with it!!

    Accessories don't add up much in my book except a nest, mates and stones could add $50-75.


    Hope this rambling helps.

    I bought a medium, with nest and side tables,plate setter and cast iron and grill for $240. .  The small casters on the nest needed replacement, but it cleaned up like brand new.  I installed heavy duty larger castors and built a raised grid for about $40.00 ..  Gave it to my daughter and son-in-law.  Perfect for two people...
