Thermostat recomendation

I have had some crappy luck with thermostats lately. I have bought two from Autozone and both did not open. This caused rapid rise in temp which I luckily noticed and removed them. I tested both in a pot of hot water on the stove and both never opened up. Besides not going to Autozone again is there one brand that is more reliable or are most made from the same manufacturer and packaged differently? I was looking in Summit Racing and may buy from them. Running without a thermostat for the time being.

BTW I have a Edelbrock intake manifold so I am using generic thermostats. The next one I buy I will probably drill a small hole in it to relieve air pockets.

Relatively cheap but important part. why not buy genuine?

I am not sure if genuine would fit. I will look into it though. Come to think of it I used a aftermarket on my Range Rover years ago so I would imagine a genuine would fit the Defender.
