Remember, insert it, then turn it on...and BINGO, you are in business.
It appears that different reviewers have wildly different experiences in how long this takes, so you should be able to get an idea of how many seconds "instant" is for YOUR thermometer, and how well it's working in general, by running a quick calibration test:
Get a big cup of ice and add enough water that the ice starts to float. (You want as much ice as possible, but not packed solid.)
Find a clock with a second hand, and check the temperature on the thermometer (so you know what "room temperature" is). Stick the thermometer in the ice water. Watch the time until it hits 32 F (freezing temperature for pure water: salt water can hit 0 F). That should give you a good idea how long it takes to adjust down about 40 degrees in temperature.
It should stop pretty close to 32 F, but you may want to leave it in the ice water for another minute, to make sure that it doesn't keep on going -- that will let you know how accurate it is. Once it's stablized, you can take it out and let it warm up to room temperature again.
Put a pan of water on the stove to boil (a couple of inches of water is fine).Read more ›
I was very pleased with this thermometer at first...Very quick read, compared to others that I have owned. Didn't have any problem with the tiny on/off switch (although be careful not to jam it under your fingernail! ouch!). Have noticed that the LCD is temporarily caput if you get it damp (hard not to do when you wash it by hand), but it always sprang back to normal by the next day.
However, after only a few months worth of occasional usage, it decided to die. Unfortunately it died right at the end of my cooking our Christmas dinner prime rib this evening!! Got up to 130.5 degrees and just stuck there.
Pulled out my roast, waited 15 minutes and then carved it. Barely a hint of pink anywhere. Not only had it died, but it was WAY off temperature-wise...
Needless to say, I was none too pleased with this puppy. Nothing like having something crap out right in the midst of holiday cooking (and of course, it was an expensive cut of beef)!! :( One minute it appeared to be fine, the next, it was frozen and unworkable. No hint that it was going prior to this either.
So although it performed well during it's tiny lifetime, it's not a long-term solution in my opinion. If you're going to buy one, I'd treat it like a disposable!
Need to buy another one now. I won't be buying this one.

This is ok, its not temperature proof so you cant stick it and leave it in an oven.
Secondly the temp sensing ramps up quickly enough but is far from being an instant... Read more
I bought one and when I opened it, it didn't work. I couldn't return it because I didn't have receipt (it had been probably a year). Wasn't the battery.Published 23 days ago by Chirper

Great instantaneous read insertion thermometer and nice pocket carry sleeve.Published 26 days ago by tfk
It works but the top constantly pops off on mine, that's annoying. There are better thermometers out there for the same or less money.Published 1 month ago by Loren
