I've had good luck with a 4L Wine Jug with a concave bottom. I start the Stir Plate @ about 1/2 speed, make sure the stir bar is in the jug towards me, slide the jug over the plate from back to front to pick up the stir bar as it slides over it and stop when it's centered. Sometimes it takes a couple tries but once it gets going it hasn't thrown the bar as long as I don't turn the speed up to much. Cheers!!!
