Nice but is a little loud
I've had great beer results with this. Most of the time with ferments visibly starting the same day I brewed. And I've only lost 1 stir bar with MB's tip. It is a little loud on fast.

So much better than my diy stir plate
I threw my homemade stir plate out. I use for 1 and 2 liter starters. Does make a little noise. Not terrible though.

Still going after 2 years
I use this to harvest yeast from batch to batch. The unit itself is quiet and reliable. I have found the high settings are maybe too much so I keep the spin low and it works just right. Definitely a must.

A must for Yeast Starters
the addtion of the stir plate was the first step in brewing all grain and higher OG beers. Works like a champ!!!!

Best Stir Plate
This is by far the best stir plate I have used. I highly recommend getting one of these. I have two and haven't had any issues. I love this stir plate.

Good (not great) stirplate
Magnet seems to be strong - I do not throw the stir bar.
Rotational speed is adequate.
Only real complaint is the size off the base where the flask would sit. It's a little small, I would not go larger than a 2 liter flask, even the 2 liter hangs over the edge.

Great Stir Plate
While this can be a loud plate, this spins in a basement room and doesn't bother me. Can manage large starters up to 2L - and has worked flawlessly. I do not use the additional arm, had to remove to accommodate my beaker.

Don't buy for 4l starters
I've had this stirplate for for a four months. Barely enough torque to spin a 2" stir bar in a 4l starter. I have to turn on the power and turn rpm from low to high a few times to get the motor to turn. Once it does spin I have to slowly increase the RPM to about 1/2-3/4 speed max. Any higher RPM and the bar flies off the magnets stopping the vortex, any lower and it won't make a vortex. They say it will accommodate a 5l flask as it will, but it doesn't perform very well. I think It's better suited to a smaller starter size with a small stir bar.

Its Ok
I bought this as an affordable option. It gets the job done. I can't get the arm to work as others have mentioned. Mine is still works but it has only been used for 4-5 starters.
