    I have used browers in the past. It was the round one made of metal. They hold temps better than the hova does because the metal acts as a heatsink. They have a 100 watt element in comparison to 40 watts in the styro bators, so they will work in a cooler environment.

    Sitting them in the sun will cook eggs quicker than the hova or lg.

    So they are ok if you don't mind manually turning eggs.
