This is a great "instant read" thermometer. I've had it for years and it works quickly and seems accurate enough when I've done comparisons with other thermometers (nothing scientific about my process). This thermometer took 8 seconds to tell me my water was 160 degrees. I also use it for meat temp checking when roasting, etc. I haven't timed those, but I don't feel like it takes very long. So, to me this is pretty darn "instant". I don't even bother with sticking a "real" meat thermometer in my turkey or roast anymore - it's easier to just stick this instant thermometer in for a check.

The only issue with this product is that the dial is extremely small. If you are like me and need reading glasses, you will need them to read this dial. :) On the other hand, I think that the small dial is why the temp can be registered so quickly. To solve the small dial reading problem, I tried the "Taylor Anti-Microbial Instant Read Thermometer with Extra Large Dial" (Taylor model # 8018). That is a terrible thermometer (see my review for it), don't bother with it. I don't know what the solution is to the small dial/readability issue, but I ding this one star for that issue.

Do yourself a favor and stick with this good small dial version instead - and just put on the reading glasses! :)

It works ok, but if I had realized how small the dial was I would have opted for one that had a bigger dial or a digital read. I would recommend going to a local store where you can see it in person.

I own at least 10 of these. At least once a month my wife is good for destroying on in the garbage disposal. So I stock pile them.

Seems to work as advertised. Temps seem consistent. The dial is a bit small, but easily readable.

I got this to help me figure out when the bread is done while baking in the oven. It pretty tedious to calibrate the thermometer and it doesn't seem to keep the calibration information well. I didn't trust its readings that much, so ended up tossing it (and getting a bread machine too). Note that it's pretty hard to read the tiny display, especially if you stick the thermometer into something cooking in an unlit oven. Also the heat coming from what's cooking will make it hard to get your face too close to the dial to read it.
