Customer Reviews

When It Worked, It Worked Very Well... Review by Fred
I used this thermometer for a lot of applications -- it worked very well for alerting a pot about to come to a boil and helped me avoid may boil-overs, especially when milk is involved. I also used it a few times when grilling, and it worked well until it no longer worked at all. Now all it does is register a temp of 5C with the alarm going off. After wiggling the cable a couple of times, it started registering the temperature again, but only for about a minute and then it was back to the alarm and 5C temperature indication. Apparently, when used with a Weber kettle grill, if you put the lid across the thermocouple cable with no protection, it hoses the wires inside and renders the unit unusable. Now waiting for the thermocouple replacement to become available. Treat the thermocouple cable with EXTREME care, or you can be in the market for a replacement as well.. (Posted on 8/11/15)
It works, even on the first try! Review by Laura
Once I managed to extricate the thermometer from its package, I used it to monitor a nice big steak for my mother and husband that I cooked on our charcoal grill. The steak came out perfect!

This thermometer takes all the stress out of cooking on the grill. Nothing worse than an over-cooked piece of meat.

It's easy to use and I recommend it for everyone. (Posted on 7/13/15)

Mostly good Review by clifford
The only "downer" I noticed is that the "time to go" feature stayed blank until the meat was about 2 deg from target point, and the display jumped to 0.00 (Posted on 11/4/14)
Good Stuff Review by Chris
This thermometer / Timer and Pager is a great addition to my BBQ set up... Using with a Big Green Egg and it has posed no issues. The face is large and easy to read... Accurate so far.... I recommend this thermometer for BBQing... (Posted on 12/25/13)
I really like this Review by MZ
I like that it works and it is accurate. I don't have to guess whether the meat is cooked to the right temperature. Being able to put into the oven is an excellent feature (don't have to open the oven and lose heat). Also, checking multiple pieces of meat to make sure they're done is easy and quick.
