Is there a reason not to use the contactors Auber sells when building a 240v electric kettle? The price seems reasonable.

I just installed one on my rig. It works like a dream. I got it really fast too. I ordered it on a Wednesday morning and got it Friday morning.

I used one, works great, no complaints! And for $19 or whatever it is, it was about $50 cheaper than buying one locally.

Gives me confidence that my lines are fully shut off when I flip that switch

These by far are more superior, but Aubers will work. I definitely recommend using contactors either way. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f16/cont...ements-273489/

I used these 30 Amp 120 Volt coil contactors and have been quite pleased - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details

A real steal for only $6.50 each.

Same one I use. I am sure it works as well as the Auber contactors.

Thanks for this! I keep forgetting to check Amazon for parts. PLUS I have a $100 gift card to use.
