Reader Tip: ITC-1000 Dual Stage Temperature Controller – $14.24… Shipped

Thanks to Twitter Follower John – @jmaysnc for this tip!  Connect with HBF on Twitter - Here

This is an update to a post we did yesterday on the ITC-1000 dual stage temperature controller.  John found a similar model for a bit less that includes shipping.  See the ITC-1000F link below and the note regarding shipping speed and other available sources.

Inkbird All-Purpose Digital Temperature Controller Fahrenheit &Centigrade Thermostat w Sensor 2 Relays

The STC-1000 is a very popular homebrewing temperature controller.  One caveat of the STC-1000 (for some) is that the vast majority (maybe all?) display in Celsius only.  Yes you can do some firmware re-flashing and such things, but as far as off the shelf units, the vast majority read in Celsius.  Some may point to this offering.  It does indeed read in deg F, however, it appears to be the single stage version.

Enter the Inkbird ITC-1000… It’s 110 V, Dual Stage (can control both heating and cooling output), has an alarm to indicate sensor failure or high temperature and… it displays in Fahrenheit… finally!  It’s also said to be more user friendly than the STC-1000.

The STC-1000 was already a great controller, arguably the best value in temperature controllers.  These improvements seem to make a great thing even better.

After seeing my post on this yesterday, John pointed out that the ITC-1000F is available via eBay for $14.24… including shipping.  Caveat: These ship directly from Asia.  If you’re in a hurry you may be better off with one of the Amazon offerings below.
