I was moved to provide a review after seeing an unfavorable review for a product I know very well. I do not want a shopper to miss a great product. (I have no relationship with the Comark company and know nothing about them or their practices.)
I have used the Comark 300 for over eight years, I have broken the pocket tang off a couple (they still work) and dropped one onto a tile floor (it did not like that at all) one just died one day after a year of daily use and I have also had to change the batteries in a few.
I am a certified executive chef and a Serve Safe instructor/examiner, my full time job is as a chef instructor at a nationally recognized professional culinary program.
It is my responsibility to know my stuff and I have naturally used and field tested many styles and makes of pocket thermometers: CDN, Taylor, FMP, Polder, MUI, even Pampered Chef and Harbor Freight. I have also tested many types: Probe, Remote thermocouple, Contact bi-coil grill and oven, alcohol and, of course, Infrared non-contact. I own and use a lot of these regularly as part of my instructional role.
I think you get the idea....
Thermapen at $90.00 is probably one of the best and fastest pro thermometers -ask your friendly health inspector- but it doesn't fit in my sleeve...
Taylor is an industry leader and CDN is right up there with them, but my preference is for the lesser known brand to the general public, the '300, because of the way it fits in the chefs sleeve pocket, its response time-3 to 6 seconds, its accuracy- plus/minus 2 degrees f. and of course, reliability, it takes a beating and keeps on working..
The reason I an on Amazon was because our vendor put the price up to $28.

I have bought 70 or 80 of these thermometers over the past 5 years.

I work at a mid-sized food processing plant, and this is our standard thermometer.

So first, the good: It reads quickly, and accurately. The readings do fall within the range specified on the package. It is somewhat waterproof, and it is very easy to calibrate.

The Bad: They really don't last super long, at least in an industrial setting. I go through about 10-20 a year, and I usually have 6 on the floor at a time. It is very rare that they last long enough to have the battery changed twice. The most common failure is that the dome over the power button cracks, allowing water to get inside of the housing. Once this happens, I pop out the battery, dry out the inside, and then send it home with an employee because it is worthless to my facility.

A note on changing the battery. The cover is not threaded. You turn the cover counterclockwise until the slot is vertical, and then the cover can come off. I usually slap the thermometer into the palm of my hand a few times, and that dislodges the cover enough for me to get inside, and pop out the battery.

Overall: I keep coming back to this thermometer because for the price, it is the best thing I can find. I could spend $200 on a thermometer that will last longer, but those can still be broken / lost / etc. by careless employees, and then I am out a huge chunk of change.

Final thoughts: It is always a good idea to verify the reading of any thermometer you use. In my plant, we use 2 points. The first is using a 50% crushed ice to 50% water (by mass) slurry to calibrate the thermometer to 32°f. We then verify the thermometers by immersing the tips in boiling water, which is 212°f. If the thermometer won't calibrate and verify, it goes in the trash. (That accounts for about 10-15% of the failures I see, Physically breaking accounts for another 10%, and water infiltration accounts for the remainder.)

Verified Purchase
I bought this thermometer 3 years ago and it has been more than reliable. I am a full time chef and I have put this thermometer through everything including the washing machine (3 times) and it still works great. Very accurate, very dependable.

As a Certified Culinarian, I use this thermometer every day, dozens of times per day to temp everything from avocados to zuchini. I use it to temp hot and cold items. I know this thermometer is fast, reliable, accurate, and sturdy. I see the negative reviews of this product and laugh at the complaints lodged against this. Very few thermometers will not melt if you have them directly over the flame of a grill, charcoal or gas. Going to melt. Another claimed this was not worth the time or money. Not specific or helpful, sounds like someone who just wants to complain. I have used mine for several years, and the only time I ever had a problem with it was when I, repeat I and NOT the thermometer, pressed the on button too long and switched from F to C without knowing it. Couldn't figure out why it was taking so long for the milk I was heating up to get to 170. So, user error, not the fault of the thermometer. Ignoring user error, I have dropped it on the floor, I have dropped it in the sink when washing the tip, I have not been gentle with it, and this thermometer keeps on going. As others mention, it fits perfectly into my Chef coat sleeve pocket and has a slim profile so it doesn't get pulled out by accident like other thermometers I have used do. It never needs calibrating, it is always spot on, and as I said, I do a donkey load of temps taking every day, and like a certain brand of watch used to say, this thermometer takes a licking and keeps on temping. Purchase this for home or professional use. It is fantastic.
