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.

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.

Good stir plate for the price
Rugged build. I have only used this stir plate once, but it seems more than adequate for the job. The plate is a little small for my 2L Erlenmeyer flask and the stir bar was a little small, but both worked well.

Nice little stir plate
I remember when the big online stores sold stir plates for $80. This little number is a great value and does everything you need it to. Nice range of speeds, and good build quality. You'd probably spend more money buying all the little electronic parts you need from amazon if making your own.

A major upgrade, especially for bigger starter batches
Love this stir plate, which can handle my big lager and strong ale starters up to 5000ml with no problem and doesn't "throw" the stir bar like my other unit. Very easy to start --no fumbling to get the stir bar aligned with the magnet. On//off switch is nice to have and the speed control knob is responsive. Very solidly built, and with a nice long cord. The metal platform that houses the magnets might look too small for a 500ml Erlenmeyer, but it works just fine for all of mine. Highly recommended and a big upgrade over the project box-based unit I'd been using until now.

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