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.

Compact Magnetic Stir Plate
A little bigger & bulkier than I hoped but it’s quiet and does the job. Overall, very satisfied.

3L Starter
The plate held a Erlenmeyer Flask with no problem and work wonderful on my last batch. I really enjoy the light to ensure power is on or off.

Only for small flasks, but worked ok.
The bar that comes with it would not stay in the middle, so I had to run it at approximately 20% speed.

Solid build quality at a great price
Most plates I've found in the past required a larger commitment/investment of money. This is a nice entry point and may be all I'll ever need. (I don't do massive lagers or anything over 10gal) Perfect size for a 2L flask. I'm sure it can handle more, but I've never had to turn up the dial even 1/3-way yet. (only used it for 2 FFTs so far, my first full starter will be in a couple of weeks)

Strong enough for 5L starters
I needed an upgrade from the stir plate I purchased when I started brewing, 1L yeast starters.
This plate is definitely strong enough to get my 5L starters in suspension, especially with the 2" long stir bar. Nice product. Great price.

Works well. Not the most powerful or fast, but effective for 1L yeast starter

Worked great on a 2L starter
New addition to my setup and have only used it once so far but it did a great job of kickstarting my yeast starter.

A good value
The stir plate is a good value. I have a 5000L flash and it sits on it
comfortably. My complaint is not with the stir plate, it is with the included 1" small magnet. The 1" magnet is too small.
There is not that much difference in cost for a 2 inch magnet to be included instead of the 1 inch. The motor is strong enough to turn a 2" magnet very well, which is what I eventually needed to purchase.

Alright. Flat surface would be better for beer yeast starters
I typically use a 2000ml flask for starters. And with the smaller magnetic plate on this, and the fact that the exterior edge is raised, there is a little gap between bottom plate surface and flask, so I often have issues getting the magnet to stay centered or start centered. If it were flat and larger it would be perfect. Get the sense this is designed for smaller flasks or containers that fit down in the raised dish part of the plate.
