    Ive been trying to fine tune the $20 dollar Oster brand burner from walmat and it doesnt work so great, i doesnt stay at a constant 120-125 degrees. ive seen it jump anywhere between 105 to 145 without even moving the knob.

    heres the link to the one i have : http://www.walmart.com/ip/Oster-Single-Burner-Black/24183268



    any suggestions on a better more accurate one on the CHEAP.??

    While we're here, anyone using a Nuwave PIC Induction range? I see infomercials for them, 2 for 99 bucks, and you can set the temp from anything between 100 and 575 F...If you used one of those stockpot type vacuum chambers, you could probably just set it on the range if it's not aluminum...

    I'd have thought you'd be a pro. I've seen pics of your garden, I'm green with envy.

    Use a cast iron pan on it or even a stone pizza tray this will act as a temp buffer , just use a thermometer on the iron/stone

    Consider using silicone heating mats to control in the low ranges that we purge.

    Deff never seen that use in the manuel :D
    My client services rep will get a kick out of that, hes a toker and he deals directly with the guy who invented it/own the patent.
