Multimeter recommendations

sqkybeaver on choosing a multimeter:

…if you use eBay,  for an entry i would recommend something like this with dmm (a second or third dmm is all ways good to have) this is as fairly accurate as a hobbyist would need.

for a more advanced user I’d go with new BK precision 879B handheld dual display LCR meter or EXTECH 380193: Passive component LCR meter

those are all general purpose solutions, if you will be doing a large. amount that are >10uH/mOHM a more expensive bench unit might be in order.
