5.0 out of 5 stars Works. Cheap.
As others have said, this infrared thermometer is a degree or two off but they admit that. Let's face it, this is not a medical or scientific device. It is to see if your pizza stone is hot enough or whether your water is about the right temp. It works fine for things like that. For the money it is great.

1.0 out of 5 stars I would not recommend this item go for one of the more expensive ...
This product worked for about an hour before draining it's battery completely. After changing the battery it would not turn on again, I tried several thinking maybe I just had a dud but it was the product. I would not recommend this item go for one of the more expensive models you do get what you pay for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a Food Vender, July 25, 2012

This review is from: EtekcityŽ Lasergrip 774 Non-Contact Infrared (IR) Thermometer ETC-8380 U.S. FDA/FCC/CE Approved; -58 to 716°F/-50°C~+380°C Instant-read Digital Temperature Gun w/ Laser Sight, Backlit LCD, Battery included (Kitchen)
Measuring how hot the dogs, the surface of the panini grill, temperature of the steam pan water were just made simple today when this inexpensive unit arrived. I first wanted one when the food inspector showed up with one one day. Point and shoot readings. But his was close to $100, and in this business it easy for anything to get dropped and stepped on. So here is a good simple affordable unit that seems to do the job of the expensive ones just fine. Likely when I run over this one I will buy another. Only one draw back it reads surface temperatures, so the good old dial thermometer will still be needed to read internal cooking temp, but now I can dial in the water temp or the cooking surface temp easy.

This is the easy way of to take to temperature of your lye or oil(s) that have been mixed. They have to be within 10 degrees of each. This does the job very well.

I really liked the thermometer because it is fast! I can make candy or soap and I don't have to waste time waiting for the mercury to rise in the candy thermometer.

they use these on a lot of cooking shows... only takes surface temp... not deep inside, and for taking the temp of a liquid in a pot, etc these are great... and a very good value....

I bought this to aid in the reflow of a laptop GPU. Works as described. It's accurate enough for my application. It's $17 so no you're not going to use it in a lab environment but for household use. It's a great value.
