    I don't think It would work well for your purposes. The temperature is fix, non adjustable. They are better describe as a temperature limiting device, typically used in appliances to prevent overheating. Accurate to +- 5 degrees. Would not hold up to frequent switching.

    Thanks, I am currently using a lower WHT, with a .7 temp swing between 99°and 100°. I have a fan in it as well. Just looking for something similar to a wafer without spending 25 bucks
