Lets do this again but with a little twist.

Mini vs Small 

Yea I know there has been a thousand threads with this same discussion. 

What I want y'all to do is talk me into a Mini. I have a Large now and love it. I really only want another egg to cook on day to day. Something that does not take as long to heat up. Everything I read tells me that I should go for a Small as my second egg. I really want another one but I'm not sure my budget is going to allow a Small. If I went with a Mini am I going to regret it and wish I got the small.? What are some of the things that you can use a Mini for other than just grilling and searing? 

I mainly just cook for me and my wife right now. Mostly burger, chicken breast, pork chops and steak.

Is a Mini that great and useful?

    I am an XL and Medium guy but for what you need it for a mini looks like a match. Plus it's portable.

  • I'd go small, the mini is really mini. But hey, that's just me.

    Large and a small work for me.  And as SoB said...the mini really is pretty mini.

    I have a large and a mini, love the mini for weekday dinners. Heats up fast and uses very little lump.

    Cm23 is right you'll love the mini its fast to heat up low lump use and cooks great but the small is a great cooker but get the mini.
  • Mini: Have one, love it and use it more than my 2 large eggs. It hits temp fast. You can cook everything on it. Affordable. Just a smaller version of all the bigger ones. You can pick it up without busting a nut.
