I bought this thermometer for food preparation, baking and cooking. I am really thrilled with it.
Now I can take the temperature of butter and know when it has reached room temperature for use in my baking. Now I can take the temperature of eggs as I whisk them in a bain marie. Now I can take the temperature of cakes and loafs and know they are ready to remove from the oven. Now I can know in seconds when roasts have reached the perfect temperature. Yay! No more guesswork.
*UPDATED 11/19/2010...I never bake without using this thermometer. The other day I was about to bake but the thermometer's display was blank. It was two days before Thanksgiving and I started looking for retailers who would ship a new one to me overnight. I called ThermoWorks. The people there were very helpful and willing to stand behind their product. They told me where to purchase a battery and if the new battery would not resolve the problem, they told me to call back and they would help me. The battery did need to be replaced and now it is working perfectly again. I really feel comfortable and confident in a product when I know a company will stand behind their products. If anything ever happens to this thermometer, I would definitely purchase it again.

I received a call from ThermoWorks today to ask how I liked my RT600C. I politely described again the situation I was experiencing (read my March 3rd entry for the gory details). The customer service rep offered me three choices to resolve the problem.
1) They would ship me a new replacement thermometer, but a different model. The new thermometer would be model RT301WA. I chose this option.
2) They would ship me a new replacement thermometer of the same model.
3) They would issue a return material authorization and I could return the thermometer to Amazon for a refund.
I chose to get the RT301WA instead of the RT600C because:
- once bitten, twice shy regarding the RT600C
- after playing with the RT600C I found that its lack of an auto shut off is a detriment. The RT301WA has all the features that I liked from the RT600C and it has the all important auto shut off feature.
In short, ThermoWorks came through for me. They demonstrated an excellent customer focused attitude.

Today I received the ThermoWorks RT600C cooking thermometer in the mail. I purchased the RT600C from Amazon.com and it shipped directly from ThermoWorks.
Functionally, the thermometer works as advertised. I tested the thermometer speed and calibration using an ice bath. The thermometer went from 70.4 degrees to 32.5 degrees in around six seconds. So my RT600C is accurate to manufacturer specifications.
The thermometer I received has a problem. It will turn itself on if the probe passes anywhere near a static electric charge. Even worse, the RT600C doesn't have an auto shut off feature.Read more ›
My relationship with chef's thermometers in particular has been very much a love/hate relationship. Spring based (or bi-metallic) analog thermometers respond quickly but need frequent calibration, are very sensitive to being dropped, they have a large probe that leaves holes in bread, and after they are calibrated a number of times tend to fail altogether. Still, they were better than the digital thermometers I'd seen and used.
The first digital thermometer I bought, which was not the one I am reviewing, died two days after I bought it. Since then, I have bought a number of digital thermometers, always hoping that the manufacturers had finally gotten it right. Many aren't waterproof, which really is important. Some fall apart because they are made very poorly. And some are very slow to respond - the most recent one I bought takes over a minute to get to a stable reading which was just unusable. I really want a thermometer that is quick enough that it doesn't become an intrusive part of the baking and cooking experience.
The reviews of Thermoworks thermometers I've seen piqued my interest. Several cooking magazines gave them high ratings, especially their almost $100 thermometer. That was just too much for me to spend on a thermometer. So, I thought the RT600C would be a good choice. It was rated second in a review I saw, just behind the more expensive Thermoworks thermometer.Read more ›
