      Hey all. Just wondering if anyone knows of a small (and affordable) curing unit. I need one that holds one 2 flask clamp. Looking to do 2 hour processes and I find the larger units take too long to heat up.
      Thanks for any direction.

      The Ball electric canner is 13 inches diameter and the water chamber is 8 3/4 inches from the bottom to the MAX FILL line. It takes about 7 gallons to fill with nothing in it.
      Do not use tap water if you plan to use the lift/stacker tray in there. The only problem ever from it is the grommets on the stacking tray will rust. Don't need it, but just being forthcoming.

      I need to cure Diamond D. 1 and 1/2 hours climb and 1/2 hour boil. Will these units work?

      Don't personally have a fry daddy, I just know people do it, the canner will have a slower rate of rise because of more volume.

      You can ameliorate that by adding just enough water to cover the flasks by an inch or so.

      Really? interesting I would think distilled water would rust faster. Since there are no ions, it would readily accept oxygen and create rust.

      In a normal world that may be, I' going from the fact that my tap water is from 100 year old building pipes that probably still are lead in some places.
      I have visible rust specks in any container that I use.

      So, he may be just fine with tap water in his place. Saves him the trouble of buying distilled or hooking up an RO or distiller.

      It's possible. The grommets on the tray were the only thing that rusted. The unit is still quite sound and shiny after a year. It doesn't go through much water anyway.

      Just want to let you know, it has a somewhate wide hysteresis, so it will not work for things like ClearSplint that need a very narrow temperature window.

      I've used these 'tea urns' as we call them here for god knows how many years (run out of fingers). No rust issues, going strong. I have a perforated aluminium type of lid in the bottom to cover element so flasks do not sit on it. Holds about 5 Success flasks or a three flask unit tipped over leaning against the side. Brought a second a few months back because I often have need to do 8-10 at a time. Can control temp which is good for fast and slow cure. They heat really fast, so you'd have to do a manual slow temp increase if you wanted slow heat increase.
