Model: P4400: Knowing the amount of voltage that is going to your machine and the level under load can be very helpful. A great way to digitally monitor all of your power levels when using a variac. Switching to a different scale is just a push of a button. You just plug the meter into the outlet or a variac and plug your machine or separated heating element into the meter. Constant display with fast readings. The display is a nice size for reading. If your concerned about your line voltage set to volts. If your using a variac you can set on volts and adjust the variac depending on volts desired under load(do not use a variac to raise volt levels above manufacturers recommended level for the roaster). You can adjust on the fly to when heating elements change the load. It can also be used to see when thermostats, afterburners or power levels are changed by the roaster by setting the meter on watts/va There are 2 models p4400 $15-25 p4460 $40-55 get the p4440 the added feature on the 4460 is merely a memory function for total usage on say a light that is turned on and off. No need in our applications. PS If there is anything I left out please comment and I will edit this review, thanks, farmroast
