Default Will this work?

I just bought a hot plate from walmart, similar to this http://www.walmart.com/ip/Aroma-Sing...-Plate/5871070

I've checked 2 of like 4 walgreens on this island and they have no coil burners, they actually only carry the double hotplates. I've even check 3 walmarts here and they all carry the single and double hotplates so I decided to just pick one up and justify the $20 purchase by telling myself that it would cost the same if I had one shipped via online purchase.


Anyway, maybe more people have used this type of burner/heater by now. It goes up to 1000w. Will this hotplate work for me and my coconara's?

Thanks

When you let it warm up on high temperature does is turn bright red? If the answer is yes then it will heat your coals perfectly

I've been using hot plates to heat my coals for awhile and it works great, again as long as it glows red on high power. Though i would warn you not to use a cheap one because repeated use of the coils on high heat can melt them if they're not well made and cause a fire.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Buzz- Nah, I was worried about that...

Gothkid- Well...the plastic didn't melt lol


This was a big fail. After about 20min the only things that were lit were just the corners touching the hotplate and about half way up those corners. I tried to flip them twice, once after about 10min and the 2nd time towards the end, by the 2nd flip the corners ashed enough to fall off make my 90% lit coal crumble to a smaller size.


I returned it and now I'm looking at https://www.coco-nara.us/details.aspx?id=6 it's the cheapest I found new online, even after ebay.
Anyone have any experience with this brand/line?

Thanks

Good to hear that! I'm not sure how much gas I've used up driving to different stores lookin for this damn thing. I can't believe how hard it is to find one here.

We have everything but a single coil hot plate smh

There's one walgreens not too far from me that I haven't checked out yet, I'll probably go check there first before pulling the trigger at coconara.us

I bet they wont have it though and they'll just have a double flat hotplate for like $40 :/

You guys should call walgreens and ask if they have any single coil burners in stock. It's actually quite simple for them to check their stock since they always have people working on the floors.
