I have had my egg for about 2 months and thoroughly enjoyed it. My problem is the gasket is nearly completely gone. Do these gaskets wear out this quickly? Should it be covered under some sort of warranty? If not what gasket should I buy?
depends on what your definition of "worn out" is.
Does the egg hold temps without problems? Does it shut down when you close the vents? If the answer to both is yes, then no worries.
There are literally hundreds of posts here about changing gaskets, the options, and the adhesive choices. Use the search window and you'll have enough reading material for a week.
Kinda like this??????? :evil: :P
If your egg is perfectly shaped and perfectly aligned your gasket should last quite a while. Mine is not. My gasket is reduced to char in 3-6 months depending on hown many high temp cooks (steaks and pizza)I do. I use Digi-Q on long cooks so I don't know for sure if it will hold a temp for > 6 h with the burned-out gasket. Otherwise my egg performs fine without the gasket, though I do worry about the lack of cushion and am carful when closing the lid.
You can replace with the normal felt type or with the new nomex which should hold up to the heat better, but I have not tried that gasket. A search will reveal a bunch of threads on the new gaskets with varying opinions.
