3.0 out of 5 stars One problem, otherwise fine., May 4, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Polder Digital In-Oven Thermometer/Timer, Graphite color (Kitchen)
All in all, I like this timer/thermometer. I like that it has both a timer and a thermometer, that comes in handy. It works fine on the grill and after owning it for many months, it hasn't malfunctioned yet.
The only problem is that it doesn't turn off. It's always on, using the battery. There is no on/off switch and I find that very strange.
Edited to add: This thermometer broke exactly 6 months from the date of purchase. The timer still works but the thermometer now says either "low" or 'Hi" and doesn't work at all. I'm going to see if Polder will replace the cord.

This thermometer S.T.B. exactly 6 months after I bought it. It's useless. Don't buy it.

I saw on Amazon that you can buy a replacement probe for $10. I bought a spare when purchasing my unit. Thanks for your post.

I bought mine in May 2009 its still working great as of August 2011 -- using the battery that came with it. It gets a lot use between grilling steaks and beer making. I always unplug the probe when I'm not using it though.

Polder designes their thermometers and timers to be on all the time. It wont eat up the battery life. They are desigened like a wrist watch. you dont have to turn it off everytime you are not using it.... The reason why the probe stoped working is because it was used in the grill. The instructions state not to be used on the grill.

Mine has an on/off switch on the bottom. Don't know what your deal is. And it turns it on and off as advertised. Maybe they updated their product which renders this review no longer accurate.
