The Hornady Hot Tub takes sonic cleaning to a whole new level. Featuring a 9 liter capacity, the Hot Tub is long enough to accommodate and clean a 16 inch AR-15 upper. In addition to having 4 transducers, there is also a heating element that enhances cleaning action, which is especially useful when cleaning gun parts. Combined with One Shot Sonic Clean solution, the microjet action of the Hornady Hot Tub removes carbon residue and other debris from cartridge cases, gun parts and other metal equipment. Unlike traditional tumblers, sonic cleaners can clean internal and external surfaces of cartridge cases and primer pockets. One 1.7 quart inner tank comes with the unit and can be used in the main tank for cleaning multiple smaller batches or to use separate solutions at the same time. Additional inner tanks can be purchased separately. Hanging cords have been integrated into the design to allow large objects to take full advantage of the ultrasonic energy. Additionally, the Hot Tub features integrated drain pans in the lids, a small parts basket, a degas function and 5 temperature settings from 100-1401F.

This thing makes gun cleaning a breeze. I used to hate cleaning my guns because it took forever to get all the gunk out. Now I just pop them in, come back in 15-20 minutes, blow dry with compressed air and lubricate with oil.
This particular unit is special that you can take your AR separate uppers and lowers, AK barreled receivers (stock removed or folded). If you want to save on cleaning solution (I use 1:5 Simple Green purple degreaser to water), you can use just the small tub for smaller parts like bolts and pistol slides, for the cleaning solution and fill the main tank with tap water.
BTW, Hinterland's prices on this cleaner was the lowest I found on the internet. I'm not a paid shill, just a satisfied customer.
