Product Description

Package Quantity: 1

Finally, a Taylor roasting and baking thermometer with a wireless remote pager. You can be up to 200 feet away from your oven, BBQ , or Smoker and still be alerted that your food is nearing the desired temperature and again when the food is done. The remote alarm is in the form of a sound alert, a vibrating alert, and even a visual light alert. You can see the internal food temperature on the base unit without opening your oven's door-keeps heat in and temperatures up for faster, more efficient roasting .The temperature range is 32 degrees F to 392 degrees F and switches to 0 degrees to 232 degrees C. The base unit has a backlight for easy reading in all types of light. The remote comes with volume control, and lanyard plus a stand, clip, and magnet for mounting .The base unit also be used as a kitchen timer .The cable sensor probe for inside the oven has a heat resistant/break resistant Silicone cord. The 147921 comes with Remote Pager. Helpful hints-The meat probe is a thin wire coated in Silicone. Be very careful not to crimp this wire in the oven- door , BBQ top ,or Smoker door. The probe , like all in the industry , should be kept away from flame flare-ups and contact with cooking surfaces. Another tip- be sure to insert the probe into the meat at least 1.5 inches. This insures that you will get the correct readings at all times.

I have read the engineer's review on what NOT to do..
Laura B. Simpson
Whether the temperature probe was plugged in or not, the thermometer display constantly read between 190 and 196 degrees.

Everything worked great for the first month and then it stopped working.

I have read the "help" offered by the Taylor engineer. I think he is just explaining away the fact that Taylor did not design this appropriately for the environment it is going to be regularly used in. I am an engineer by training and have used these types of temp measurement devices before many times - they are popular because they are accurate and reliable. If packaging is not designed correctly, anything will fail. (perfect example - computer manufacturers design keyboards to have a drink spilled on them; is this logical: no; does it keep the keyboard safe in its likely use environment: yes)
My problem is that the crimp that holds the wires into the probe did not hold well so the plastic protective sheath pulled out and, no, I did not pull the probe out by the cord. Now the little wires that actually combine to determine the temperature rub on the probe opening and cause an error (especially if even slightly moist). Bottom line: the cord should have been sheathed in braided metal like every other probe out there.
There may be good news: as I was writing the review sitting on hold with customer servcie, someone finally answered my call. They will send another probe out for free...in a month and a half because they are backorded. I'm sure the Taylor engineer will chalk the demand for replacement probes up to user error. Good luck to those who purchased.

This thermometer does everything it's supposed to. Some folks have complained about it reading inaccurately, and I've found the trick to avoiding those reading problems is ensuring the metal shaft of the temperature probe is only touching the meat, and not the pan or oven grid. Metal to metal contact can supreheat the probe and it can show the meat is done after 60 seconds of cooking. Avoid that contact and this thing is a gem. It's spot on accurate, and made my pork loin come out perfectly. The wireless pager works everywhere in my three level house, including the basement, so you can feel free to roam about doing other things while your dinner cooks. I've used it about five times now, and the probe wire shows no signs of wear, despite having been exposed to 425 degree heat for over 1/2 hour on at least one occasion.

Just finished reading my copy of Cooks' Illustrated and I see they've listed this wireless as their new #1 thermometer, knocking off the previous title holder. I love this piece and am glad to see the experts think so too. It's compact and works well. I love the backlight and that the remote beeps, vibrates and flashes a light for the various pre-alerts I've set for cooking. I use it more indoors than for BBQ's, but it's clearly a great piece and by a company who knows thermometers. I have other Taylor items too.

I purchased this item at another retailer (wish I would have gotten it here!) and have used it twice already. The price was great! I had a corded one before that didn't have the remote, but wanted to try this. I used it on the grill to cook some chicken and had no problem with the cord at all. It was great because I didn't have to constantly run to the grill to check the temp -- I did once but then realized I didn't have to and waited for the beeps (and it was cold out). The chicken breast turned out well. I used it in the oven this weekend for a roast, and again, it was great. The meat was done really well and cooked just the way we like it. I like that I don't have to spend all my time in the kitchen checking and checking the temperature. I truly didn't worry about the roast until I got the beeps. Can't wait to try it again for the holidays

The title might seem harsh, but it is too true. Upon delivery of the Taylor 1479 from Amazon, the unit was inoperable out of the box.

Upon power-up, the display registered what seemed to be the ambient room temperature. I then placed the probe under my hot water tap and the display immediately registered 'LL'. I did not submerse the entire probe, but rather just ran the water over the last few inches of the probe to avoid getting water inside of the tube. After a minute or two, the display came back to ambient temperature, then back to 'LL' and repeated randomly.

I decided to test the Taylor 1479 against known boiling water. The Taylor 1479 displayed 139 degrees in a pot of 212 degree boiling water.

Allow me to state the obvious... An inaccurate meat thermometer is worse than no thermometer at all. Most people use a meat thermometer to aid in judging the 'doneness' of expensive meat, e.g. prime rib. Trusting the Taylor 1479 will guarantee ruined meat as well as ruined occasions.

To answer the Taylor engineer/apologist who provided the last 5 star rating... I am an Electrical Engineer with over 40 years experience in measurement devices. I grew up with a Simpson 260 VOM, and have used everything from an oscilloscope to a real-time Fourier analyzer to a bus monitor. I know how to use a probe thermistor, and the Taylor 1479 was faulty out of the box. Let me make this clear... THE TAYLOR 1479 WAS FAULTY. Maybe you should do something about it?

I know I'm living in a dreamworld, but how cool would it be if Taylor hired a group of people in the US to perform quality checks on their Chinese-made products?
