Excellent Chiller
This is an awesome chiller. It works with a gravity feed, so in addition to being half the price of a Therminator, you don't need to buy a pump. I chilled 10 gallons of wort down to 80F when the ambient temp was 95F. I'm not sure what the ground water temp was, but I was impressed!

Excellent chiller
This is one of my favorite pieces of brewing equipment. I like that it takes up less storage space than an immersion chiller. I also like that I can rack my beer quicker with this plate chiller than I could with my old immersion chiller. You do need to find a way to keep hops/sludge out of your plate chiller or it will definitely clog. I use a "hop spider" during the boil and I have a bazooka screen on my boil kettle. I also back flush my plate chiller with PBW immediately after use and bake it in the oven before storing it.

Best Chiller for the Money
I have had this one for about 5 years now and its been great. It's hard to clean like any plate chiller, but I have never had an infection or off flavor yet. I did however leave it sit without back-flushing, so I bought another one figuring 5yrs is enough. I also have a Blichmann plate which is equally good, but this one performs just as good as that for half the price.

SHIRRON ECONOMY COUNTERFLOW CHILLER
Chiller works well. Great deal if you buy it when Midwest has a 20% off sale. I would recommend it for small batches.

Great Chiller
This is the first chiller that I have owned and I was surprised how good it worked for an "economy" chiller. It chilled the wort really quick, so much so that I had to turn the flow of water down to ensure I didn't drop below pitching temp. I didn't have the flow from the pot open full, but it was flowing at a decent rate to ensure I could aerate it fully. I didn't use a pump. Gravity worked fine.

Chillin like a fillin
Totally amazed at how well the product worked. 210 degrees down to 59. Only down fall is that it doesn't come with mounting hard wear.

great for gravity feed
I have used this chiller after whirlpool and can easily chill wort to below 70F if i have the water turned on full blast.

Works great
As other reviewers have mentioned, this chiller works well just by using gravity. I put my fermentation bucket in an ice bath and drain into it from the chiller. Drops from just below boiling to 72 by the time I'm done running 5 gallons through it.

Cools Fast
This works way better than my immersion copper wort chiller. I use a 1/2" line and the beer is cool as my brew pot drains into my primary fermenter.
