Well, we picked up a new XL this morning, and it is now sitting unassembled in the living room. And no, it won't stay there even though it would make winter cooks a whole lot more comfortable; at least for a short while. Digressing.. My actual question is what does the new spring assist lift look like? I got one with the egg, but it is different that the one at the store and am wondering which is the new one? Never seen a picture of the "new and improved" lift, so don't know which is which. Anyone got a picture of the new one?
