    For some reason, I had always thought these were quite expensive, but I just stumbled across some on Amazon for around $50 (but there are versions well over $100).  I haven't used a refractometer in years, so I am wondering if anyone has insight as to what features I should look for?  It sure would make sorbets and pate de fruit a lot easier to do.
