The MS-H-S Circular-top analog magnetic hotplate stirrers have a stirring range of 0 to 1,500rpm and maximum stirring volume up to 20L, and can be operated in environments of 5 to 40 degrees C at 80 percent relative humidity in air. These units can heat samples to 340 degrees C, and automatically stop heating when temperature reaches 340 degrees C to protect the samples. These stirrers have an electronic speed control for constant speed, even during changes in load, for data quality. They have an enclosed housing that conforms to Ingress Protection 42 (IP42), Technischer Überwachungs-Verein for Canadian and US markets (cTUVus), and European Conformity (CE) standards. These models come with a choice of a stainless steel or porcelain plate. The stir control provides slow-speed stirring, consistent speed, and strong magnetic coupling to reduce the risk of stir bar decoupling. These stirrers have a brushless motor for durability. Thermometer supports and clamps are sold separately. These stirrers are designed for general laboratory use to heat and mix liquids simultaneously.
A lab stirrer mixes substances for a variety of academic, research, or industrial applications such as solutions in chemistry and biology and food and beverage production. There are two basic types of stirrers: magnetic or overhead. Magnetic stirrers are ideal for smaller volumes and low-viscosity solutions, have no moving external parts, are considered easier to clean than overhead models, and do not need lubricants which can contaminate the solution being mixed. Magnetic stirrers have a rotating magnetic field that causes a separate magnetic stir bar, when immersed in a solution, to spin and stir the solution. They usually have a plate on a base and either an internal or external controller. Some models have multiple stirring positions to stir more than one vessel at once, and in some the plate is also a hot plate for heating the solution while stirring. They can be submerged in water and used inside closed vessels or systems, such as incubators. Overhead stirrers are ideal for large volumes and high-viscosity solutions in open vessels, and usually have a stirring blade and a drive shaft typically made of stainless steel or a chemically-resistant polymer, a controller, and a motor. This type of stirrer often needs more space than a magnetic stirrer, and can be more difficult to set up and to clean afterwards. However, by changing the stirrer blade shape, they offer control over how a substance is stirred. For example, certain shapes are suitable for high-speed stirring of low viscosity substances, while other shapes are suitable for low-speed stirring of high viscosity substances. Both magnetic and overhead stirrers come in analog and digital models, and a variety of configurations and sizes.

This is unacceptable $260 down the drain.
***UPDATE*** The manufacturer apologized saying this should not have happened and sent a brand new upgrade to stainless steel without any hassle at all. Replied same day on a Sunday night. Excellent customer service.
I've had this product for around a year and it's worn in great. The first few times I turned it on I could smell the oil and whatever else burn away and season. Now I smell no odor and it keeps temperature stable with or without the magnetic stir.
The device does come with one small magnetic stir rod (which I did not know at the time of buying). It is a very small size but it's still nice that it does include one. If you are going to use it with a large beaker I recommend buying one or two longer stirring rods to accompany the unit.
The magnetic stirring has a wide range of speeds. When you are using the unit turn it up slowly as you can get it stirring so fast that liquid will begin to overflow if you set it too high.
The heating function works well. One gripe I have is that it only tells you the minimum temperature and the maximum temperature. The scored lines in-between RF (the lowest setting) and the maximum setting (340C, 644F). It would be very nice if the scores along the way had temperature markings to give you a ballpark estimate of how hot your heat setting is at.
Overall I have owned the product for several months and have not had any problems with it. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a sturdy magnetic stirrer with a heat plate function at a reasonable price.
