    That CAN be used, but wafer thermostats have less variance in temp. Make sure, if you do get one, that it is not just the wafer.

    I am assuming the one you linked to is a knockoff of the STC-1000 water heater thermostat?

    ETA: I used one in my own version of a coolerbator and I love it. It is very steady!
