    Does a 1588 use a wafer ? I see the 1590 is a electronic thermostat. Thanks Mike

    The 1588 is the Genesis hovabator and uses an electronic thermostat (no wafers).

    Guess I caught the fever I ordered a hovabator today with all the gagets. [​IMG] Looking to start a project. Have been using broodies the last few years and it's great but looking for something more. Mike

    Good selection! I personally bought mine from Cutlersupply.com. It was actually around $10 cheaper after shipping to buy it from them instead of the manufacturer.
