    I'm looking for the best thermostat I can get for $20. I've seen some cheap ones but the temperature ranges 9 degrees. I need something good so the incubator wont need much monitoring.

    I use a wafer thermostat. It is very simple, and the temperature range is very good. I think you can only order them online though, I never had much luck finding them in my local stores.
