Aeration is an important factor in making a yeast starter, and without the stir plate you'll need to pick up and swirl your starter by hand as often as possible. Drop the included stir bar into your Erlenmeyer flask, set it on the stir plate, and let it do the work for you!

What size stir bar is included?
Christopher J. Perri on Feb 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I bought two of these 6 months apart. I love them and they do a great job. The first stir bar is about 1.25" (with some noise) but the second stir bar is about 1" and I hear basically nothing. It is more than enough in my opinion and I usually stir about 1.6L at a time in a 2L Erlenmeyer flask. Hope this helps.

One had to use it once so far. The base is just big enough to hold a 2L flask within the indented part.

A Nice Machine
I've used this stir plate twice now, with both the included 1" magnet and an optional 2" magnet.

With 3L liquid inside a 5L E. flask and the 1" magnet there was no problem adjusting the speed enough to create a nice whirlpool.
When i tried the same 3L liquid inside a 5L E. flask and a 2" magnet, again had no problem creating the required whirlpool, BUT unless the speed is very slowly increased, the magnet would be thrown to the edge of the E. flask.

In general, as the speed dial is adjusted clockwise, the magnet speed increases, BUT between about 10 o-clock and 11 o-clock position there was little if any speed increase which suggests to me that the internal potentiometer is not 100%. I'll watch that this behavior does not worsen.

Very happy with the stirrer. Quiet, strong enough to easily put a vortex in a 1 or 2,liter starter. Can’t believe I screwed around with a diy cigar box now for just about the same $. Rob

Unbelievably Good Value
So, I bought one to see if I like it... I liked it so well I bought another and then another...So, I am up to three (yes, I brew a lot) and I propagate yeast constantly and have a pretty good yeast farm going now... these pay for themselves within a short period of time... Would definitely recommend...

Decent for 2L starters
Works just fine for 2L starters. When I got to 4 or 5L, I needed to use a bigger stir bar to generate any sort of a vortex and the magnet on the plate just isn't strong enough to hold the bigger bar at reasonable speeds. The unit has also just stopped spinning (power still on) several times, presumably due to the use of the larger bar.

Affordable stir plate
I finally chucked the homemade PC fan stir thing (it never deserved the word "plate") and got one of these. Wish I'd done so sooner! It's quiet, it holds onto a stir bar even in really big starters, and I don't worry about an electrical fire from my amateur wiring job.
