Product Description

Style Name: Vermont Dial

Amazon.com

Whether it's meant to be decorative or not, the big thermometer outside the kitchen window is décor. And, if it's one of those cheap plastic jobbies, especially one that's sun-faded and cracked, then it is unsightly "décor." So, if you've got a shabby thermometer to replace, or you're just in the market for a thermometer, why not make it a handsome piece like the Vermont Natural Brass Dial Thermometer? Constructed of solid brass, copper housings, and real glass, the Vermont Dial Thermometer is built to last, and adds an upscale vintage feel to the home; combining practical simplicity with a timeless design. Its brass and copper are naturally resistant to corrosion. Left to weather and age, the thermometer will take on a rich, dark patina as seen on copper roofs or outdoor lanterns. A 4-1/4-inch dial face is easy to read from across the kitchen-the numbers are plenty big, and aren't too close together. An outdoor swivel arm bracket ensures mounting at just the right angle. The thermometer displays both Fahrenheit and Celsius. And, convex glass housing protects the precision-calibrated, so this unit stands the test of time, thrives in inclement weather, and survives the occasional jostle. Manufactured in Vermont, this classic thermometer is guaranteed for life! --Brian Olson

Product Description

Shouldn't a weather instrument be as durable as your house? Shouldn't it enhance your view while it measures the temperature? We think so! That's why we use solid brass and copper housings and real glass. These classic thermometers combine practical simplicity with timeless design. Solid brass and solid copper endure well outdoors because they are naturally resistant to corrosion. Left unattended, they will attain a rich, dark patina like that of a copper roof or outdoor lantern. We do not apply a protective coating to the surfaces of our outdoor products because there is no clear coating that lasts as long as the raw metal itself. This dial thermometer is finished in natural brass and uses a 4.25 inch diameter dial face with an outdoor swivel arm bracket for mounting at just the right angle.

Very accurate and easy to read.

The fact that the required "Made in China" label on the box was so deceptively?

I was very disappointed when I discovered that this particular T-6 Vermont Thermometer was "Made in CHINA". I own other Conant Brass products and have been very pleased w/ them. When this T-6 arrived, I placed it beside the Conant thermometer I've had on the front porch for years. It was reading off by several degrees, so I looked at it closer. CHINA was stamped on the back of the brass housing. The product packaging seemed to indicate it was made in Vermont, so I studied the box for about 10 minute before I found the very inconspicuos "Made in China" inside one of the Conant Brass trademark circles on the bottom of the box.

Although Conant Brass didn't say it was made in the USA, there was that implication. The fact that the required "Made in China" label on the box was so deceptively? hidden really angered me. I returned it.

I recently purchased this thermometer to give to a friend and did so based on my first hand experience. This thermometer is an excellent example of something that is beautiful built in terms of form and function. It's simplicity gives it a classic look. It ages beautifully and one never has to worry about any finish giving out. The first five years of its life were spent outdoors on a deck in Vermont. It has seen just about every conceivable weather imaginable. Thirty below temps, driving snow, rain, freezing rain and baking summer sun to name a few. To put it simply, it lived in a world of constant abuse and always performed perfectly. Every time I've checked its calibration, it's been dead on. I image I'll have this thermometer for the rest of my life unless I lose it somehow. I suppose its only downsides are that it reads inaccurately when direct sunlight hits the brass and the numbers aren't big enough to see from far away. Both of these shortcomings can be easily dealt with, however.

I bought 4 of these; three gifts, one for myself. Mine is not accurate and at least 2 of the others are not. The thermometer will read well below freezing when it is clearly above freezing, and this is with due regard to micro-climates, I'm talking about inches away. Many reviewers say their thermometers are accurate. I have to assume this is another instance of Chinese quality control. If I had bought these thermometers as decorative objects I would have rated them more highly, but I wanted to know the temperature. In this case I feel I did not get what I paid for. Apparently it's a gamble.

I ordered this because I like the look of the brass holder. I read the reviews that complained about the numbers being too small, but that did not bother me. (My husband thought it was too small to read though, so he agrees with other reviewers.) When it arrived, it read the accurate temperature inside, so I hung it up outside. When it was outside, the temperature was not reading accurately. It was anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees above the actual temp., so I contacted Amazon and they sent me a replacement. In the meantime, we had some really cold days, and the thermometer seemed to start registering correctly. Who knows? When the second one arrived, I put it out next to the first. The second one registered anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees above the first one. So, I am not sure how accurate these thermometers are... Anyways, I ended up returning the second one as it seems the first ended up being closer to the actual temperature (at least I think!)

follow up- Sept 2009 - the thermometer is now stuck at 63 degrees... pretty sure it is not always 63 degrees here!

Considering the high price for this thermometer I figured it would be well made. There are two fixed circles of metal. The outside is brass with numbers cut out showing the inside ring in a different color. I was excited because it was going down to -20 degrees and I wanted to see how accurate it was. Unfortunately the free spinning temperature indicator gets stuck. The outside brass circle is attached in a SLIGHT oval and the indicator hits it. Not fixable. Now I have to figure out how to deal with the warranty. Very frustrating considering it was a gift to my wife.

Update: I was able to round out the brass circle. I now works well and is very accurate.

After about 4 years the white face on this thermometer started flaking and is now completely unreadable. One day it just started peeling and flaking and now the needle will not move. The brass and all other parts seem fine but this thing is not built to last! We live in Wisconsin so it gets cold but, the numbers go to -40 so the cold should not hurt it?

I love the looks, but who would put up with a pair of scales this inaccurate, even if the scales were great design?
Conant: bring those jobs back from China; you must be making a fortune on this piece of junk in beautiful casing. However, you can only skin the cat once, and I will not be buying your products again.
I've been looking for info to recalibrate this thermometer, but not having any luck.

Update: received word from conant that they would replace my thermometer. Sorry I did not take them up on offer. No excuse just lazy, so I'm upgrading their rating based on their customer service attempt. I can't give it a 5 star because I haven't responded and therefore don't know how reliable the replacement would be!
