    I installed one this spring and it hasnt shown any wear at all.Well worth the upgrade.
  • how does it do in a high heat cook (above 600) ??  have been building to to a clean burn and want to get the replacement gasket first...cant decide which one to use...

    Rockwall Texas, just east of Dallas where the humidity and heat meet! Life is too short to get caught in the fast lane behind somebody slow!

    I have replaced the original gasket with the nomex one...all was fine till i did some stir frying with a big cast iron skillet with an open lid....fried the nomex one as well.  It was my fault so i think if you using with the lid closed you should be fine.  Just picked up a new nomex one yesterday but due to the cold weather where I live it might be a while before its installed....I agree that is works great and is worth the upgrade!
    Always having fun with the BGE!
