This thermometer is very cool. I recently purchased a convenience store and when the inspector from the Dept. of Agriculture came to the store, he was using this thermometer during his inspection. He highly recommended this thermometer to us. So we ordered it right away. I highly recommend this product.
I originally got this so I could check food temps and maintain food safety as I got more into sous vide cooking, but since then, I have found all sorts of uses for it in the kitchen to check food temp.
I bought this for my husband the cook as a gift. He has used it almost every day for almost two years and he loves it. The great thing is that it works for other uses too! I've used it around the house to check where we have "heat leaks" which is an issue here in the desert. It works instantly and is very accurate.
