PeterPan Posted July 14, 2012 Share Posted July 14, 2012 Ok, hopefully this doesn't sound nutty. If the labs we're looking at for physical science say to use a bunsen burner with a flask or beaker, can we do that on a *smoothtop stove* turned down really low? I saw a "lab hot plate" in the HST catalog, but I don't want to buy that if a stove works just as well, mercy. I googled and found something about home brewers doing it and using something in-between. Never done that before, don't know. :D Maybe it depends on the quality of the glass in the beakers and flasks? Is there a brand to use or avoid? Home Science Tools seems to have their own brand that is significantly less for something it claims is roughly the same thing. Any suggestions or opinions or bad brewing experiences? :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
