Where did all the egg table covers go?

Back 10 years ago I bought a standard BGE table/egg cover from BGE and returned it because it was thin junk.  I then opted for the "deluxe ventilated" cover as it had been called.  The latter was a much heavier and more durable cover and has lasted me approx. 10 years.   It is time to replace that cover.....anybody have any good suggestions as to what I should purchase?...I don't see that this same cover is still available.

    What is the idea behind keeping it covered?  Is it to keep the dust off, or something else?  It seems the wooden handle would be protected.  Is it thought the ceramics benefit from a cover?  Curious, thanks for any replies.

    Solely for protecting my wood table.   
  • I have a Montana Grilling cover on my huge cedar table, which houses my LBGE. Nice quality, though the price reflects that. After about a year of use, one of the seams started to split a little bit. Dealer replaced it with a new one no questions asked.

    vinyl covers by Mel. I have three egg covers, patio furniture covers, Back yard swing covers, and they are all custom and very reasonable price, along with lasting quality

    Thecoverstore.com has good quality covers. As stated above, for the table rather than the Egg.

    In my case the SS table and egg don't care either way. But, I like it as it keeps it cleaner especially during pollen and lovebug season.

  • BGE covers may have improved, mine is really good quality and still looks great after 2 1/2 years.

    Store I bought my egg from had what sounds like the type of cover you are looking to replace. I have only had my egg since the summer but the cover seems to be a quality, heavy duty, durable and ventilated in the back like you said. My cover is more to prolong the life of the table I purchased with the egg, even with the eggs design I figure it cant hurt to protect the whole thing from the elements. When I purchased I figured the cover was a reasonable purchase to try and extend the life/condition of my purchase. FWIW

    Thanks!....here is the cover that I was looking for.  It has lasted me a long long while and I like the big vent.  It fits damn near perfectly....down to the top seam which is completely lined  up with the table top.  I recall it was called 'BGE Deluxe Ventilated Table Cover'....but this was about 10 years ago +/-


  • You can check Coverstore.com for one. I bought one of the "Island" covers and it has worked out well. It has long screened vents on the front and back. I have had mine for approx. 5 yrs out in Michigan weather with minimal wear.
