Value of large green egg base

Can y'all help me figure out what a fair price would be for a large green egg base that has a hairline crack across the bottom? No inserts are included. Just the base and the metal on the door. Crack does not seem to go all the way through. Thanks

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Even if you got a base in perfect condition you can't really build it into an egg cost effectively.  

    If someone was local to you
    And they broke a base 
    And had no warranty
    And they only cooked at low temps
    And a broken base did not bother them

    then maybe $75 to $100.

    I am selling. I was thinking 100. I was going to build a new egg out of it but you are right it is not cost efficient.

  • Stainless draft door assembly if removed in good shape is worth maybe $20.  Cracked ceramics aren't worth anything in my opinion.

  • If you're selling then I agree with @Cowdogs but would say it's only worth about $50.

    If it's cracked (hairline or otherwise) it has no value whatsoever,,,,,,,,,that crack will only get worse as it's used creating a possible very dangerous situation.

    I'm sorry... I wouldn't give you $25. It would make a cool planter
