Really too bad. I have similar experience with a small portable Samsung refrigerator. It does not have a temperature display/setting - it has the old fashioned 0-9 dial. If I want to keep it in the 60's it is very hard to regulate. A small adjustment can move it 10 degrees. Similar fluctuations when you open the door.Currently, I ferment my doughs (TXCraig1 style) in the crawl space, basement part of my house. This time of year it stays in a range of roughly 60-68. We are in the process of kitchen update planning and are thinking of a small fridge. I suspect my dough needs will be (appropriately) banished to a small fridge in the garage. I was hoping your find would do the trick.- Mitch
Mitch, My next iteration will be a slightly larger fridge, preferably one at least 17.5 inches deep so as to be able to accommodate the Doughmate Artisan size proofing trays. I will attach it to an external temperature control device such as:http://winestat.com/Or one of the Johnson Control devices:http://www.beveragefactory.com/draftbeer/keg-equipment/thermometers/A419ABG-3C___9161.shtml?CAWELAID=1372130435&catargetid=1553582284&cagpspn=pla&gclid=CPWr3ea-oLcCFYVZ7AodBzwApgOtherwise I am either constantly fighting ambient temp. Or fighting my wife about messing with the A/C!John K
Cool! Those are PID controllers like what FeChef uses on his water bath cookers. Except he builds his own.
John, if you are going to multi task your controller(sous vid)then you need to note that some of the ones in your link only handle up to 80 degrees.
Bob,I hear ya on that. Thanks. Seems like I'd go for that JC A419 one since it goes to 212F. If I were to be ordering one. Which I probably shouldn't b/c the loveley bride said "No more stuff!!!" on our way home from church yesterday.But thanks for keeping an eye out for me! John K
Sure thing! Oh, and enjoy your new controller when it comes in.
