Product Description

Vee Gee brand dial thermometers are an excellent choice for many applications including food and beverage quality control, general lab use, asphalt/concrete testing, and soil and compost testing. The smaller stem and face of the standard unit fits nicely into a shirt pocket or holder while the face and stem of the large unit allow for deeper penetration into the sample. The large faces and long stems of the 3" Dial models are perfect for soil and compost testing.

Size: 72 inches Stem x 3 inches Dial Verified Purchase
This thermometer works as expected. The stem is substantial enough to stab into a compost pile. The thermometer responds in a reasonable amount of time. In addition to leaves, my compost pile has small sticks, pieces of cardboard, food scraps, etc., The stem is sturdy enough to withstand pushing through these materials to check the internal temps of the pile. It helps that the end of the stem is pointed.

My only complaint concerns the packaging in which it was sent. The first one I received had the stem bent and the thermometer face broken due to being packed in a flimsy cardboard box with no internal support and no protection for the glass face. I returned it to Amazon, and the second one I received was packed the same way. It's stem was slightly bent, but the glass face wasn't cracked, so I reluctantly kept it. Never before have I received such a poorly packed item from Amazon. Hope this is not a trend.

I'm using this as a soil/compost thermometer, but it really is a plumbing thermometer. That said, it is a better deal than most gardening type units. It is heavy, stainless steel with a thick glass face. The back is threaded to insert in a pipe. However, it works great for soil and compost - as long as your piles don't get super hot.

We're using this thermometer to monitor composting temperature in several very large eco-block bins. It reaches into the middle of the pile, and we've been getting great results. The long stem makes it possible to get to the "heart of the matter" and it's easy to read the dial even in low light.

Not much I can really describe about this thermometer. The description pretty much gives you the specs; it's not that complicated.
It works exactly as described. The dial is clear & easy to read. A great tool for measuring the temperature of the soil in my worm farm. :p

I bought this thermometer to keep track of the temperatures inside my compost heap. It's well made, very sturdy, and should last a long time. My only complaint is the length of time it takes for it to reach the temperature. The indicator rotates very slowly. Often taking 2 or 3 minutes before it stops moving. I suppose that's not unusual for a mechanical thermometer but a digital thermometer might work more quickly.

This thermometer is well built and very easy to read. Works out great for checking temperatures deep in the pile.

I just started a composting project where I make a pile 12 foot in diameter and 7 feet tall. I needed to know when the middle reached 150 degrees and when it fell below 120 degrees. This thermometer gave me the reach to get the desired temperature readings.

Not an essential gardening tool but useful in the planting process. It is accurate and it is easy to look up proper temperatures for planting various seeds. Crops suitable for cooler temps are in!
