Editor's Notes

January 10, 2019:

Quality had to be a primary determining factor here, as there are essentially three types of distillation kits on the market intended for three very specific demographics. The highly ranked Vevor model happens to represent the highest quality in materials and construction, even if it isn't the kind of device you'd apply to essential oil distillation. Options like the Laboy HMK22 seem to be the most common, made of glass and intended for a wide variety of uses.

Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
