- Bearcarver, does the Gen 1 MES 40" come without the glass? Kind of useless. It's not cheap "feelin?" I can't stand cheap tools. Thanks.
I'm not sure if you can get a Gen #1 without the glass, but I never checked because I love the glass door in mine. I can see what goes on in there without opening the door. I can see if my AMNPS has stopped or jumped lanes. I can see if my probes are still where I put them. I can see what color my Bacon is to see if it's where I want to pull it. I can see just about anything you normally have to open the door to see. Those who think it's useless either haven't had one or haven't taken the very short time to keep it clean (IMHO). Either way, it doesn't feel like a cheap toy. A square metal box with a plain hole in the middle of the top seems cheap to me. We all have our own ideas what cheap is, and there are a whole lot of happy MES Gen #1 owners around!
- Bearcarver, forgot to ask, what model number do you have?
My MES 40 Gen #1 is the following model number and has the following options:
Model # 20070311 ALL SS, door/with window, 1200 Watt heating element,r emote control, wheels/handle, with heating element access door, small wood chip tray.
