Several technical cooking programs on TV have, from time-to-time, warned that your actual oven temperature may not be what you set it to be, and it may need to be re-calibrated. When doing so, they have shown themselves using a device such as this to check. I saw this listed and the price was inconsequential compared to the benefit received, so I said "what the heck" and got it to check my now-20-year-old GE twin stacked electric ovens. I figured accuracy might have faded over the decades. Result: I determined that the alarm alerting that it's finally up to temperature is actually 50 degrees premature, but that it's eventual temperature is exact. The only question I now have is how accurate is this tester? But I hope for the best. D.
I have an electric oven that seemed to take too long to bake things. This showed me the actual temperature of the oven so I could adjust the temperature accordingly.
I have a roaster that's 60 years old. I took it to a shop to see if it was still in working condition and it passed. I bought this product because the light that tells you when the temperature has reached the degree you want was not working. I put the thermometer in the roaster and set it at 300 degrees and after a little while I checked the reading on the thermometer and roaster was working perfectly according to the thermometer. Sometimes old is better ten new! I should know I'm 81 years old!
