I found this on the Ascotts website. Has anybody come across this before, are they a good investment and is there somewhere else that sells them cheaper.

link to spec & price
no not found anything cheaper for the size (27L/6G'ish)
yes very good investment if you make a lot of cheese and if the temperature controls on this can be controlled (ie it's not just set to pasteurise)

The best comedy is to see the politicians in the USA blaming one another for all the stealing they have been doing for so many years.
Maybe this is Obamas strategy to get the truth out in the open.

Using a simple plug adaptor will only supply the device with 110V, we had a similar problem when travelling in Vancouver earlier this year, the hair dryer my wife had was a little bit weedy running on 110V. The thing might work with 110V, just probably won't get as hot.

You really need a step up transformer, they are not too expensive, just googling found quite a few results.

Just watch out for the wattage.

Thanks for thinking.
I bought a new seat for one of the motorcycles after the order was cancelled. Soo no more spending for a week or two.

Now i realize that i need a 6 us gallon heater like another hole in my head.
Ill try the sink method first.

I have been making sausage but havent done any cheese yet.

I was being compulsive but boy tht is some nice gizmo.


Thanks very much for your input. :D
