Price of a hot plate/stirrer?


Hi, I am looking to buy a hot plate for my home lab. I don't really have a good feel for how much these go for so I am looking for some advice. Is $200 + shipping a good price for a 10x10 ceramic top Fisher Isotemp hot plate/stirrer? I looked it up and it has a max temp of 540°C and a digital temp readout with a max stir speed of 1200rpm. It looks like this one goes for $950 ish new, but this one is used in fully functioning and clean condition. Thanks in advance.

Definitely a good price. For comparison, I found a 7x7 model for the same price except free shipping, and it had sold.

$50 used is a decent price provided its in good working condition. I have a 7x7 I paid a hundred for because it was like new. You shouldn't pay more but you might have to wait. With the depression continuing and labs closing all the time you won't have to wait long.

$50? What are you talking about? I haven't seen a hot plate/stirrer(Especially a digital one) from a major company go for less than $140 used, and those could barely boil water.
