Reviews around set (4.11 of 5)

  • I use it with a 23 oz. coffee cup on a warm setting with no problem at all
  • Otherwise it would stay on the "warm" setting indefinitely
  • Works well, the lowest setting is great for keeping a mug of tea warm
  • High" setting is actually too hot, so I use "Medium" instead
  • Heats up pretty fast and the warm setting is perfect for heating up VG so that it can be sucked up through the needles easier

Reviews around heat (4.01 of 5)

  • Does not matter because it does not provide enough heat for anything you need to accomplish.
  • It's perfect for an extra hot plate, once it heats up to hight it mains great heat
  • only reason it wont get 5 stars is because its just enough heat to boil a good amount of water with lid
  • Very uneven heat on the heating surface and really hard to maintain a temperature
  • I used gorilla glue to repair it for a while - good for another month until heat caused it to fail again.

Reviews around thing (3.63 of 5)

  • However, takes forever to warm up... then be careful touching it because the whole thing is hot!
  • It works ok, but the entire thing gets really hot, not just the burner part, so be careful
  • However this thing would set off the smoke alarm if you just ran it unvented during the break in period
  • Works fine to boil water the only thing I don't like is that because of the hot plate mass it takes a long time to cool off.
  • I followed the instructions to the letter, but after 10 minutes on high, the thing was still cold

Reviews around unit (3.44 of 5)

  • As noted in a lot of reviews the whole unit does get too hot to touch (150 to 180 degrees?).
  • I would not recommend this unit for the average user; it's a piece of junk.
  • As it stands, I now turn the unit to "Warm" for a minute, turn it off for fifteen minutes, and it's still too hot to use for evaporating slides without harming delicate tissues.
  • I had a cheaper unit (also only lasted about year like this one) but it heated up much faster because it had the old fashioned heating coil the sides of the base were much much cooler to touch
  • I have a dehumidifier in the trailer but this unit still got Rusty.

Reviews around fuse (1.00 of 5)

  • Just remember to keep it in open space not too close to the wall or anything that will burn the fuse out from what I read.
  • This unit has a very crappy thermal fuse.
  • The internal thermal fuse has blown
  • The units were level, plugged into the wall by themselves, and well over 10 inches away from anything that would have upset the internal fuse
