As a Chef I demand only the best products to work with, and this is by far the best pocket thermometer I have ever used! I love that it doesn't take me 20 seconds standing over my roasts, steaks, burgers, etc. to get a fast, accurate reading, cause I honestly don't have time for that in a busy kitchen.

At first glance:
The thermometer is exactly as described by the manufacturer. The response time on this thermometer is honestly the best I've had the pleasure of using... in fact I'm pretty well convinced that it even matches the speed of those very large ones with the attached probe on a wire (now granted if you pay $300+ dollars you can get one that will give you the fastest most accurate read but for the money, best deal here)

I especially love the finer pointed tip on this thermometer that goes quickly, and easily into any protein that I need, no matter how tough, or thin the product is I get a perfect reading fast, so I'm never tied up waiting 30 seconds to get an accurate read out of my regular dial thermometer which you have to make sure you keep calibrated correctly, or the cheaper digital thermometers that just take longer (and the fact they have a much larger tip that DOES NOT like to go into products easily)... for a few extra bucks, SERIOUSLY BUY THIS!

The extra temperature range of this thermometer is also quite handy, if even for some reason i have to check the temperature of my deep fryer its still capable of handling, extra kudos for that.

And yes, it is waterproof, I have tested it.

This is the new version of the CDN Proaccurate Stainless Digital Thermometer, which is very well reviewed on Amazon. That model (DTQ450) has been discontinued and replaced with this model (DTQ450X). This is the first quick-read thermometer I've owned for cooking. If you don't have a quick-read, I highly recommend it. Traditional thermometers can take up to a minute to read temperature. This CDN model provides a temperature reading within about 2-3 seconds. That is extremely convenient compared to a traditional thermometer. The form factor is fairly nice. The thermometer is small (6.5" long), and the readout is not too big, maybe a little larger than a quarter. The buttons are easy to press and the readout is easy to view. The stem is made of stainless steel and it feels fairly solidly built. It can be switched between metric and English units as well.

When actually using the thermometer, don't stick the entire stem into your food like I did for a week. It will give you an inaccurate reading. Just place the very tip of the stem in your food about 1/2" in and it will read. The only possible problem I can see with this is that you might not be able to check the temperature in the very middle of your food if you have a thick piece of meat.

Length: 6.5"
Temperature range: -40 to 350F
Instant Read: <3 seconds.
Cleaning: Just wipe clean with damp cloth. Comes with a case to protect the stem.
Special Features: Shatterproof; auto-off option (cuts off automatically after 10 minutes)

UPDATE: 24 Dec 2011 - Two years and hundreds of dishes later and this thermometer still works, however the case it comes in has expanded or loosened up and no longer fits, which is disappointing. It is still one of my most used kitchen items.

I bought this primarily for homebrewing, where a difference of 5 degrees F can make a large difference in results. I compared it side-by-side with my trusty old Taylor thermometer. The CDN reads quickly and accurately, and the huge digital fonts are easy on the eyes. The fact that the temp stays on the thermometer after measurement makes it easy to record the temperatures on my brewsheet. I'll keep my Taylor as a backup, but this is now my go-to thermometer of choice. Excellent value for the price.

For the price, this thermometer is excellent. We purchased this based on the Cook's Illustrated recommendation because their review process is impeccable. It's one of the best kitchen purchases I've ever made for the price. I used this every time I cook or grill meat and it's incredibly fast and reliable. This works great on any cut of beef, chicken or pork and its easy to maintain.

I recalibrate about once every six months, but so far it's been dead on every time. With constant use (about 3-4 times a week for 2 years), that's impressive.

I'd highly recommend this, hands down.

After calibrating this thermometer (twice), it consistently reads about five degrees higher than the actual temperature. Using that information, I made a roast and aimed for a reading five degrees above what I wanted. The results were perfect. If you want perfect accuracy, this item is not for you. If you want something merely consistent enough to get the job done, this is good enough.

I had a Taylor digital thermometer, but I found that I kept forgetting to turn it off, so it went through batteries too fast. I finally dropped one in a drink, and it died. I replaced it with a glass/alcohol thermometer, and while that had none of the problems of the Taylor, it was ungainly, delicate, and it required a large hole (I want one in my kettle, and I didn't want to drill a larger hole). I switched to a Taylor dial thermometer, but that was a disaster--it needed calibration every time I left it in a hot drink for more than a minute, and steam condensed inside the dial cover. This CDN works great. It's far more waterproof than the Taylors, it doesn't drift, it reads fast, it's accurate and precise, it turns itself off after a few minutes. Good stuff.
