Infrared hot plate

by Mterpstra » Aug 31st, '15, 15:10

Hey people

Does any of you have experience with this hotplate
http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2015-new ... 45183.html

It is a little pricey but it looks awesome. It looks well build as well. They 2 more version, but I like this one best

Another relate question: Is it possible to build a nice wooden box around the Teachatter favorite the Duxtop infrared hotplat? In other words, how hot does the outside get?

Cheers!
Mattias

This is a very good point! Also, if using a clay kettle it's safer to heat it up slowly at first; I've cracked a clay kettle by filling it with room temp water and placing it on a very hot burner. Temp control helps a lot

This is the first aesthetically pleasing infrared heater I've seen. Are there any heaters of this type that have variable temp control?

BW85, did you crack your clay kettle with an infrared burner or another type?

@Kyarazen and BW85
I was thinking the same thing last night. I just checked and it indeed has no temp control. Only on and off. Too bad... I might email them to check if they are available.

@ Tead off: I've seen people build very nice cases for infra heaters. But unfortunately I'm not very skilled in that stuff. In the last global tea hut magazine there is a really nice infrared heater in a clay frame. They say they buy them in Taiwan. I'll check with them where they get them and if the heat is adjustable

if not for the voltage difference, there are gazillions in china, elegant, rustic, you name it.

taiwan is a better source as they would have it built for a voltage similar to the states :)~

I tried my luck on Toaboa for a bit. But it's not the easiest website for me to navigate. What keywords will help me find stuff on there? I've been using combos of the words: brazier, tea, infrared, hotplate, cooker, heater.

i've mostly been finding shoes and weird electrical equipment :?
