Re: AF Grommet Issues
I had the same problem with mine when it was new. Very difficult to get in or out of the base. The only thing I found was to lubricate the grommet with olive oil ( I'm sure any vegetable oil will suffice) every 2 or 3 uses. It's about six months old now and the grommet is still pretty snug, but not maddeningly tight like it was. Good luck.
