    It's a hard toss up between the mini & the small. I am leaning towards the small because when we go to the lake or any other get away there is generally at least one other couple with us but still undecided

    I went with the small but that was after getting the medium, which was after getting the large.  It's a sickness.  I'd get the small, if that $539 included the nest that's not a bad deal I don't think.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    You can do 499$ at most fest but I think that's a good deal. I just bought one and paid 490$ for just egg, it was 599 for nest egg

    This one was $539 for egg and nest. Basically the nest is free compared to the price he had on the small

    Thanks rontho. I think if I buy I will buy new for the warranty. It would have to be under 1/2 price for the gamble. I think

    Asked him about the warranty and it hasnt been registered. Dont know how that works with the mothership. may want to call and ask them. Either way, if I were near there i would grab it in a heartbeat. Good luck

    I see what your saying. I always tell my kids there is two ways to get a no, one is to not ask. sometimes you get surprised. And not implying that mattman is a kid either. ;)

    I am a kid at heart B-) but I would be 99.9999% sure that the 2nd hand warranty would be a negative I wouldn't warranty any of my products to the 2nd owner. Just sayin.

    That's just it, I don't think that he called in for the warrany and I'm not sure if BGE will honor it or not.

    On Friday I stopped in at a dealer about 2hrs from my house and got quoted $689 for a small, nest and plate setter. It amazes me how the prices very so much from dealer to dealer.
