The Stuart US152 stirrer hotplate is part of the Undergrad range – a stylish and economical range of stirrers and hotplates, with built in safety and performance features. The US152 features a flashing “hot” light when the plate is over 50 °C, even when the plate has been powered off.
The US152 has a robust coated aluminium top plate. The silicon coating gives a layer of chemical resistance to protect against spillages, while the aluminium alloy ensures good temperature distribution across the whole plate surface.
