Alright thanks. Drove a half hour today to pick this one up when i could have drove 3 minutes down the road to the local Walgreen's and picked the coil burner up. Picked it up earlier for only 10 dollars, going to return the other one on Monday. Thanks a bunch guys, I would have been stuck with the flat top which was more than double the price.
