I have this as well. The delivery and service are excellent. Overall I do like the product but my wish list for changes are:

1. Make the footprint large enough for the 2000 mL to sit on so it's not hanging over the edge
2. The plug where the transformer plugs into the back has been pulled out a few times exposing the plug.

Not complaining, it does what it's designed for . I'd probably buy again for the price...I have searched for stir plates on ebay since I got this one though that may be more substantial.

I ordered one a few weeks ago and I'm very pleased. Excellent service and it works like a champ.

I have had one for about 6 months. No complaints. I use it with 1L, 2L, and a 1 Gallon growler with no problems.

I have one with a 4l flask on it right now. There's only a 2l starter in it, but it works just fine.

FWIW I bought a longer stirbar and it wouldn't work with this plate. It kept getting thrown.

4l, that thing's freakin ginormous lol? What are you using that 1056 in? Must be for a 10gallon+ batch?
The largest starter for 5 gal I do is about 1200mL, although I am going to pitch an American Amber onto a cream ale 1056 yeast cake tomorrow.

Just an APA. I'll refrigerate it overnight and decant the liquid and it'll be perfect for 5.5 gallons of 1.060 wort.

Got one on ebay and he send me a busted one. Once I let him know I had a new one at my door two days later. Stellar service plus a lifetime guarantee? Can't ask for much more

Thanks for the reviews, was planning to build my own, but I guess I'm just lazy. Order sent!
