okay!  My FBCSO arrived ahead of schedule on Monday.

I managed, on my own, to get the box open and remove the detritus and get into the second internal box.    That's as far a I could get.  This baby's heavvy!

Tomorrow my canasta playing friends are coming so I will have help lifting the behemoth out of its box and setting it up on the countertop.

I can't wait to bake my first loaf of bread!

 

A universal tip for getting heavy stuff out of boxes:

1) Open top
2) Fold flaps down the side

3) Flip box over

4) Lift box from product, rather than the other way around

That way you're lifting the light stuff (cardboard and foam), and gravity is your friend. Doing it the conventional way means you're doing the heavy work, and gravity is decidedly *not* your friend.

ETA: Waiting for helping hands with the final lift-into-place remains a wonderfully sound idea, of course...
