Can this thermometer be placed directly in the oven and left in the oven during the full duration of cooking cycle? Or is it just the probe? Nov 18, 2014
Well, I surely found out the hard way that "in oven" doesn't really mean "in oven". Just melted mine.
how dependable is it. worth the money? Jun 24, 2013
We just recently got it, but it appears to have a more solid cord/unit connection than the one it replaced. Also, it goes sub room temperature so it is good for measuring the chill on items such as homemade ice cream. I'd consider it to be a good value.
Do the pre-set temp & the current temp simultaneously display? Does the alarm sound when the pre-set temp is reached? Mar 17, 2014
Yes, both temps show simultaneously. There is an alarm for when the set temp is reached -- you can turn the alarm on or off.
Can this thermometer be also used as an up/down timer only, i.e. without using the probe? Mar 16, 2014
Yes. It can be used just as a timer. Easy to set and easy to read.
Need to accurately measure temp of milk boiled on stove--when it gets to a certain temp AND when it's cooled to a certain temp. Will this work?... Sep 1, 2013
Bet you're making yogurt! That's what I want it for, anyway. I had a thermometer almost identical to this one, and while the alarm would go off for the upper temp, it wouldn't go off when it reached the lower temp. Did you ever purchase this, Iris, and does it work for what you (I) want?
Are replacement probes available? Dec 27, 2013
My Polder thermometer is a different model, but I have ordered new probes from Amazon for mine. I would be confident enough to order this probe for a newer Polder gauge. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002GUJ82I/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER I think the polder is an excellent oven thermometer. The first one I had had a wire mesh shield on the temp probe, the new ones have a synthetic shield that holds up great.
