Easy to use, great for checking the temperature inside a pizza oven.
Rick on Long Island
I bought this thermometer to measure high surface temperatures (1000 degrees F) of solar ovens and panels, It was easy to use and seemed very accurate.
Dan
This will work for now on this project until the time comes for me to buy an image type.

The evening it came, I gave it a try. The temperature is way off.. on both ends of the scale.
Using a digital cooking thermometer, I measured hot and cold water running at the tap, the
BAFX was at least 10 degrees low on the low side and 20 degrees off on the high side. THen
I measured some copper heating pipes. I have two loops that have input and outflow themometers
.. input was about 160 degrees on both supplies. The BAFX indicatred 110! Then I measured the
supply to the (zone) hot water heater. The BAFX reported 82 degrees, yet, I could not hold my hand
on the pipe.. it must have been much higher than 82!! Returned to Amazon the next day.

PART 2: BAFX Customer support emailed me. If I was interested, he would arrange
to ship me a new unit. If I liked it, I could keep it and pay for it, if not he would include
a return pre-paid label. I was impressed with his support, so I agreed. I've had it about 2 weeks
now. It works just as described and correlated very closely with the other (kitchen/room)
thermometers around the house. Though the first one failed, with good customer support
and the second one working, I would recommend this to anyone interested in one.

Think the item works great, really just bought it out of curiosity about the temperatures of things. First off for those writing a negative review there are a couple of possibilities, 1 you got a dud, 2 you have no idea how this thing works and you didn't even read the manual or the instructions on the side of the gun (these are my guesses based how people describe the problems).

Google how infrared thermometers work and you'll see they work best on organic materials and not so well on shiny metals and things of the sort. Furthermore the laser measures nothing and is just used as a pointing device, on mine it seems it measures the temperature slightly below wherever the laser pointer is (likely they are mounted in parallel and obviously the laser is mounted above the infrared sensor). This gives you surface temperature only, if you're cooking this is good for checking oil temperature in a pan but not for checking internal temperature of meat (get a meat thermometer) or for checking boiling sugar temperature (get a candy thermometer). However if you say for instance want to know about how hot is that fire over there, this is great (assuming that fire over there is no hotter than 1022 F/550 C.

Inaccuracies can be caused by differences in the assumed emissivity of the measured material (probably around .95 from what I've read) versus the actual emissivity of whatever you're measuring... for the geek in you all:

Pattern Name: -58F to +1,022F Thermometer
I just got mine and tested the accuracy and repeatability using 'point blank' measurements. I used a fresh alkaline battery in a new unit and was careful to avoid reflections from shiny surfaces. I took all measurements with the laser & backlight off to save battery power and minimize any internal heating effects.

Taking 10 measurements as fast as I could of a black anodized chunk of aluminum, I got a mean of 79.33 F with a standard deviation of 0.18 F. (range was 79.7 to 79.1, with the first 3 measurements a bit higher than the rest)
If I throw out the first 3 I get 79.23 +/- 0.075 F.

Note: I found the battery compartment a bit hard to open, and the instructions vague. The trick is to gently pry both out and up at the two finger marks with your fingernails or small screwdrivers.

Now the bad news. I calibrated mine using a black coffee cup containing freshly stirred ice water (should be 32.0 F but I read 23.2 F) I also used the inside of my mouth after exhaling over the unit (should be very close to 98.5 F, I got 94.8 F) Finally, boiling tap water in a coffee cup fresh out of the microwave should be 212 F but I got 192.5 F)

That is well outside the claimed accuracy of +/- 2.7 F.

I then tried to repeat the boiling water in the coffee cup measurement to see if could find a source of systematic errors. What I learned is that the gun becomes wildly inaccurate if the sensor tube or lens are heated by steam. I'm not sure if it was the temperature or the humidity that caused the problem, but the inside of my freezer measured 62 F after that, when it had just read near zero a few minutes earlier!

The thing recovered after a few minutes of shaking the head to cool the insides and blow away any condensation.

I used this thermometer to test the surface temperature of the water pipes and water heater in my basement but I put together this quick video of it using coffee and ice water as the lighting in the basement was too dim to be of any use. Hope this helps you guys out, worked well for my purposes.

The price is reasonable for an average non-contact IR thermometer which gives readings that are about correct. My experience is that when you first turn it on, it gives the most accurate readings. If you use it continuously to do readings, the accuracy of the readings decreases after about 5 readings in a row as evidenced by the fact that making the 6th reading on the same item that I took the 1st reading on now shows a fairly different temperature. If you just want to do a quick temperature measurement of 1 to 3 items and you'll be done for awhile, this is probably a fine item at a good price. If you will be doing multiple readings in a row, I'd strongly suggest you consider a different item since the accuracy on this one decreases when you do several readings in a row.
