DO NOT USE A TABLE NEST TO SUPPORT AN EGG UNLESS THE EGG IS HOUSED WITHIN A TABLE, ISLAND OR OTHER SURROUND.
THE LOW-PROFILE TABLE NEST IS NOT DESIGNED OR INTENDED AS A FREE-STANDING SUPPORT for your EGG. Only the Mini and MiniMax have a low-profile Nest designed to be used as a free-standing base.
THE EGG IS DESIGNED TO BE USED IN A METAL NEST OR WITH A METAL TABLE NEST, PROVIDING AN AIR GAP BELOW THE EGG – however you must exercise caution and not place an EGG directly over combustible material such as ground cover or an extremely dry wood surface even if using a Table Nest.
A concrete paver block or granite tile is often used to support the EGG when used in a table or built-in. If not used in conjunction with a Table Nest, it is recommended that these be stacked at least 3” thick for proper heat protection.
FOR MAXIMUM HEAT PROTECTION, IT IS BEST THAT A GRANITE TILE AND A METAL TABLE NEST BE USED IN COMBINATION, particularly if EGG is routinely used for long cooks or high temperature cooking and is placed over a wood surface.
PERIODICALLY CHECK THE AREA DIRECTLY BELOW THE EGG to ensure that over time there is no deterioration on the surface under the EGG due to heat transfer.
