    Wow.  Never heard of them.  Sweet stuff.  We have Kalamazoo grills here in MI that sell extremely pricey stuff too.

    While I'm not sure who will buy it, I do know that he will "ultimately" pay for it.

    More likely it’s a joke. 

    Pic of the lectern shows it in the Capitol. Would be more believable if the pic showed it elsewhere.

    It's the side burner that makes it worthwhile.  I like the Santa Maria grill styles but I can't understand the pricing.

    I've never understood Kalamazoo's outrageous pricing. While I've got zero experience with them up close, they don't seem any "better" in aesthetics or build quality than Alfresco and other high-end outdoor grills that are in the <=$5k range.

    There is nothing about that grill that requires much thought or design around airflow like a smoker would have.  I’m sure the fit and finish drives a good part of the cost, but compare that to a high end competition smoker on a trailer with all the accessories. Yikes.
    I do not have any broken or spare parts for any size egg.

    I'm guessing the BGE lettering and green color improves performance somehow?

    You pay less when there’s a knob.

    Agreed.  Many times you need to take the lid off quickly and return the DO to the heat, and the knob is your friend at those moments.

    What can I say I'm a suckered for BGE stuff. I have many eggs and eggcessories. Do I need them, no I just like to collect and play around with them. 

    Knob is not needed, just rotate the lid and grab the handles and lift


    I guess I'm lucky not ever having to hurry and get a lid off an on when cooking with my Dutch Ovens. Usually cook low and slow with them on the egg.

    But if you use the top for a casserole you lose your lid.

    Putting a bid in on this tea kettle that Lit is offering on ebay.

    Thinking too I might get this dining room set that theTrim has up on craigslist. Though I will probably have the seats reupholstered.

    We picked this up today.  Don't know anything about the silverware and goblets other than it's sterling.  Pumped about the Magnalite pot.  Inherited it from MIL.  Bunch of old carved ivory napkin rings in the mix.

    Love the pot. I'm a huge fan of thick gauge cast aluminum cookware. I've been ordering various pieces from Italy by way of Amazon as it seems to not have fallen out of favor there with the home cook as it has here.

    @nolaegghead I’m digging that magnalite piece. I have a huge one that I’ve never used. I like the size of that one.

    Also liking that stock pot. Have one just like it. Also have two oval roasters and a few smaller original magnalites.

    theres a company making very good reproductions of them. MacWare/Cajun Classic. I also have one of their oval roasters. You can’t tell the difference.

    Nice.
    Demant makes some pretty amazing somewhat steam-punky stuff. I really love/want their Pin&Cleaver. As soon as I win a Powerball...

    I'm totally fascinated by their designs. They're definitely priced out of the home consumer market, but a man can dream...





    Oh my word!   Any idea on what these cost?  
    Quick look on EweChube didn't find much but I can see me losing hours staring at these items of beauty.
