Mentioned in:

Conical are the sturdiest of fermenters, harder to clean, sediment can be removed without racking, yeast can be harvested, and they can be sanitized effectively as most are stainless steel which is scratch resistant. Exposure to oxygen is reduced or eliminated, and they provide a good oxygen barrier for long term storage. They are considerably more expensive than plastic fermenting buckets or glass carboys.

Advanced conical fermenters with interated heating and cooling are also available for automatically controlling fermentation temperatures. Very useful for brewing warmer or colder than room temperature. For examples, lagers are fermented near 50F while some ales (notably Belgians) may require temperatures as high as 84-86F.
