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

Worth every penny. Reading through the other comments prior to purchase, I had been slightly concerned about the packaging, but chose this item anyway for the reasonable price when compared to other thermometers available. Item was shipped in a long box with lots of additional paper padding and came out nice and straight within my expectations. It is not necessary for good performance of these thermometers for them to be "arrow-straight". Minor deflection in the stainless steel shaft is likely due to the normal manufacturing and handling process and should not impair the use of the thermometer, nor be seen as a defect resulting from shipping or otherwise unless it prevents smooth insertion into a typical compost pile composed of ordinary composting materials. Simple adjustment of the calibration screw on the back side of the dial to reconcile the temperature reading on the gauge with the ambient temp was all that was necessary before use. Excellent product for the price, and I'd recommend to any serious composter. I'll probably also use this thermometer for confirming soil temps before spring planting next April, if for no other reason than not having to bend over so far to read it.

I just purchased this and have used it one time. Not really a tool I would use too much, other than start of spring. I am not using it for compost, but rather to determine soil temp for specific plantings. I like that the dial is large and easy to see and it has a long stem, which is great to get down to the planting level and best of all, no battery to replace.

It appears to be accurate, from my checks with a digital device. I think all and all a good item for the price.

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.

Great robust thermometer that has helped us follow the progress of a large compost pile over quite a period of time. Its accuracy has allowed us to adjust the mix and moisture with readings at different levels of the pile. The threaded top would allow the addition of a handle. Excellent value for money and swift, well-packaged delivery!
