Adafruit's old off-the-shelf hotplate
I'm pretty sure that I remember 2-3 years ago on AAE that LadyAda was pretty pleased with the performance of one (maybe two) of the hotplates that she bought off-the-shelf, but I'm unable to find any references to it. I was wondering what brand/model she had that were performing well. There's only one off-the-shelf one that I'm finding out there and it's in the $400 range, which is in my price range. While I'd be interested in at least seeing anything else under $1000, I don't care about anything that's over $1K.
I'm also not interested in considering a T962 oven as I've heard nothing good about them out-of-the-box. So much work has to be done on them to make them usable, and I don't need another such "project" right now in my pile.
