Seems to be dead-on accurate
on December 8, 2011
I was skeptical about this thermometer at first, because I also bought an Admetior freezer thermometer and the needle stuck at the 58 degree mark. Regardless, I placed this oven thermometer in my oven and set the oven to 425 degrees to bake a pizza. But the thermometer was reading about 250 when it should have been reading 425.... so I thought.
As it turns out, my oven takes much longer to heat up than I thought, because as the pizza baked, the thermometer eventually registered 425 right on the button. Not only does this little gadget seem to be spot-on accurate, but it taught me something about my oven that has helped me considerably in my baking since.
UPDATE: After using this thermometer for nearly two years now, it's still working perfectly. Whether I bake at 325, 350, 400, or 450, this simple, little gadget is spot-on. Impressive.
