Why are the 2L and 1L both more expensive than the 5L?

Any idea how much shipping is for these?

Ordered 1, thanks OP! We'll see what the shipping cost ends up being.

I might have to look into these. I went looking for an Erlenmeyer flask a couple months ago and found out you can't buy one in the state of Texas. Apparently people use them to make meth so you can't buy one without applying for a permit. I looked into getting a permit out of curiousity and you basically have to sign a waver that gives a narcotics agent access to search your home and interrogate you. I decided it wasn't worth it and found a glass jug to use instead. Who knows what kind of "contraband" a narcotics agent might find while going through my homebrew equipment.

"Say, what is this thing you call a "hygrometer" and what do you use it for? And please explain this copper coil that suspiciously looks like something off a moonshine rig I saw on the Dukes of Hazzard."

It is true that the invoice does not show shipping cost... But at $52 for four 5000ml flasks they could charge me UP TO $120 and it would still be cheaper than other places. In reality it won't be anywhere close to $120 - as soon as I know I will pass along the info (my four are backordered for 2 weeks which at that price is ok with me)! And the 1000ml ones showing $20 must be because they are more popular.... Don't really know - but I can assure you the price for the 5000ml ones will go UP once they realize the sweet deal...

3000mL - which I think is the perfect size - for under $8? I'm in.

I got a certificate warning when I went to the site. Sorry but not putting a CC# into a site that I can't verify

Exact same product on another site is $57.24 plus $11 shipping. http://www.novatech-usa.com/Products...ks/FG4980-5000

If that price is right it's the deal of the century.
