For Christmas, I gave my husband the Taylor 1470 Digital Cooking Thermometer/Timer. He had been using a milk thermometer for measuring the temperature of his water for tea and manual drip coffee. The price was right and I figured I could use it, too. But after a year, the wires came loose from the metal tip. I researched the options for a replacement part and was slightly appalled that it was almost the same price to replace this piece as it was to buy the thermometer in the first place. But I will say, I think it's worth it. The steel braided wire is much more durable and I don't worry when putting it in the oven and closing the door on it. It has held up to daily use for 9 months now and still looks brand new. If you're looking to replace your original probe, don't bother getting the same one as you had. Get this one!

Yes, it's pretty lame that you have to buy new probes that cost over half what the whole thermometer cost in the first place. But you do. I haven't found another thermometer with the capabilities of this Taylor unit at anything close to its price. In particular it's a true "instant reading" thermometer, unlike the little lollipop-style ones that actually take up to half a minute to stabilize. The Taylor's one weak point is that the probe wires break, and they're not easily fixable. I say that with some authority.

When my first probe failed, I took it to my workbench, looked it over, and quickly figured out how to squeeze the sheath open and pull out the thermocouple wire. I used to repair lab equipment all the time in graduate school, so this part of the procedure was no problem. The wire had shorted out exactly where it enters the sheath. The edge of the sheath is sharp, the wire rubs against it, and sooner or later it bridges the insulation. Poor design.

Unfortunately, my efforts to fix it got nowhere. I spliced the wires and wrapped them in the thinnest heat-shrink tubing I could find, then tried to re-insert the thermocouple into the sheath. The splice took up just a fraction of an inch of the wire, but that was enough that the thermocouple itself wouldn't push all the way down into the tube. The wire above that point is too thick to enter the sheath at all, so I was stuck with the thermocouple rattling around inside the sheath with air all around it. Air is a great insulator, so of course the repaired probe's response time was much longer than before.

I'm hoping this replacement with the metal braid cover will last a little longer than the original cord, but I'm being very careful with it nonetheless. When it fails - and I'm pretty sure it will eventually - I'll just have to pony up the money for another one.

Got the probe recently and have used it one already. I am giving fours stars because I feel a little dumb that I paid $13 dollars for what does seem to be a better made probe than the one that originally came with the Taylor thermometer. Problem is I could have sworn I originally paid $40 (justifying paying $13 for a replacement) bucks for the unit but when at Target this past weekend I noticed same thermometer for $19. Seems odd to pay just $6 less for the probe. I used the original probe probably 50 times or more so I felt it held up great.
The new probe wire is braided metal and seems to be seal better where it connects to the probe. My unit started displaying Lo when I plugged it in and would not read at all. I googled that and found many others saying they got same message and a new probe would do the job. There were lots of similar complaints about pricing of probe. If this lasts at least 50 more times I'll still be happy. Overall it's a rather cheap investment for a great product that accurately reads the internal temp of your cooked meat. I guess when I look at it like that I should just be happy of all the food poisoning this thing has saved me. I need to be more grateful.

With proper tools the job gets done every time, that said I highly recommend the braided wire probe over the substandard original which came as part of the purchase. The real question is why we put up with such treatment in the first place. The braided wire probe is clearly what should have been included with the original purchase instead of the substandard plastic coated one. Why must we wait for weeks to be possibly caught in a delicate procedure only to find the manufactures ploy for more money has cost us a meal or worse. This is capitalism at its worst. I would like to add that as a vegetarian I have not used it on a grill.

Does not work. Takes up to a minute for temperature to stabilize and reads 10-20 degrees below real temp. Even if temps where correct the wire cable constantly tangles and is a pain to handle compared to the silicone one that comes with the original thermometer.

The Taylor food thermometer works fine. The weak link is where the probe wire goes into the tubular metal probe tip. Of three thermometers in three family households, all probe wires have broken due to bending at the junction, rendering the probe useless. I'm giving this probe a tentative four stars because it looks rugged and may last longer than the original with the plastic insulated wire. The stainless braid over the wire does not seem too ready to bend, so maybe the wire will hold together.
