    Hi All,
    I crave a Vinmetrica meter, but unfortunately my budget does not permit the splurge. Looking on Amazon, the cheap pH meters seem to get fair to poor ratings.

    Can anyone recommend a decent pH meter under $100?

    For $70 I got an Extech. It can take other probes as ORP, the “bulb” is actually flat glass so it can give a pH on 2 drops of liquid, it is break resistant if you put it in a beaker with a magnetic stir bar.
    I used pH in the pilot plant testing food coming off the line for 20 years. The cheap ($100) ones work well, I like gel filled so I don’t have to worry about refilling.
    I would like a vinmetrica too. SO2 takes a micro amp probe.
