I broke my 3L Erlenmeyer Flask, just barely clinked it against my 1 Liter Erlenmeyer and cracked it.
Now I need a new one for my starters.
I'm thinking 4000 ml makes more sense, a little extra room to avoid boil overs.
Why would I not want to go with a 4000 ml Borosilicate Beaker
I always just put aluminum foil over the top anyway while on the stir plate.
With the wide opening seems like it would be easier to control potential boil overs, and would be easier to fit in refrigerator (shorter).
