Default Shirley Fabrication Waiting list

I can see how the $5,000 cookers would be better off shipped for this reason, especially if Kevin charges a flat rate of 1k per cooker, though I’m sure that changes on size.


I’ll just add this, I’d pay high shipping for a Shirley. It’s arguably the best reverse flow cooker around and will last forever. What’s an extra 900 bucks when you’re cooking on it in 30 years?

If I wanted a reverse flow, it’d be a Shirley and I’d pay Kevin to deliver it to New York regardless of cost.

Well I wouldn’t just say “what’s an extra 900” because that’s a lot of money for a lot of people. I’m really not trying to argue that Kevins rates are high. I really have no clue because I haven’t gotten that far in researching shipping carriers. This is just my own personal opinion, that if I’m going to spend 1k on shipping a cooker, I “personally” would rather have the experience of driving and getting it. I would rather pay $1,200 for a fun experience. Though I’m only 31 so I still have a lot to experience in this world, I get most people probably hate driving, where I love it.

I’m not down playing the 900 nor am I saying that Kevin’s rates are high. I own a business, believe me when I tell you I know about having to turn a profit. But, in reality, you’re looking at minimum 500-600 dollars to ship any cooker (similar size)
from out of state. Why not pay 300 more for what you really want?

You’re absolutely right. If I was going to get my cooker shipped, hands down I’m going to go with the person who is literally being recommended by Shirley owners. I would easily wait another 3-6months to save up the extra costs. So in that regard, I completely agree, if you have to get it shipped, I would pay extra to know that my baby is in good hands lol.

Please don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t trying to be cavalier with your hard earned money. But when we’re dealing with a “dream” purchase, we’re better off saving longer and getting exactly what we want.
