What should I look for in hot rollers/curlers?

I'm looking for a decent set of hot rollers for my thick, wavy, mid-length hair. I have steam rollers and velcro rollers but I want a set up hot rollers. I picked up a used set at Goodwill to see if they worked in my hair and I do like the effect but the set I have is pretty janky (missing rollers, no clips, takes a while to heat up). I bought some replacement clips but they don't fit right and I think I just need to upgrade to a fully new set of rollers. The options are crazy-making: ionic, tourmaline, ceramic, I don't know!
Recommendations for specific sets would be appreciated but also what to look for in a good set would be just as helpful. I've looked at MakeupAlley and nothing really jumps out as clearly better 9maybe nothing is) and Consumer Reports doesn't cover them.
