Will any Ultra Sonic cleaner do?

I noticed you can get ultra sonic cleaners off places like Amazon that are marketed for Jewelry for around $30, which seems to be much cheaper than the reloading branded ones.

Will these work the same way? What specific specs do I need to look for? How big should I get?

As at the other forum:
Buy one that is big enough to hold a disassembled pistol. I have one from Harbor Freight that easily holds any of my semi autos and most of my revolvers.
The jewelry cleaners work the same way but tend to be smaller.
PS The suggestion to look at the Kendall machines via Amazon is a good one.

^ what he said.

I have a 2.5 qt (I think) and its great, got it on sale from Amazon and use it to clean pistols, brass, and various small parts.

The sell to my wife was that she could use it to clean jewelry
