    I have always used the Arista style stainless steel development tanks (the ones with the black plastic lids and caps) for developing 120 film. Can anyone tell me if the Nikor tank with the quick pour top is really any faster to fill and dump than what I have now? Obviously, it depends on technique. But for reference, it usually takes me about 10 seconds to fill my Arista tank and get the lid back on.

    The Nikors are about the same.

    Modern Kindermann lids seem to be the fastest.
