They can be used for everything from sterilizing lab equipment to keeping water from freezing for livestock to preparing soup or coffee on the road. Be sure to follow all manufacturer's instructions to ensure both the device's long life and your safety.

Editor's Notes

November 23, 2018: Selected both the Lewis N. Clark and Norpro models despite occasional issues with longevity, as often this can be attributed to user error; anyone selecting these models or similar are encouraged to peruse the directions before use. Added the Allied Precision and Electra models for those who have larger containers of water to heat, as well as the Anova despite hiccups with the Wi-Fi option, as the Bluetooth version seems to function fine.
