Not calibrated, I would put the accuracy at around +/-6F or so, based on my own testing on the unit I bought. Once calibrated it seemed to be closer to +/-2F.
It's on a bit of the expensive side ($15 at time of writing) but definitely worth it.
Would absolutely recommend for anyone looking for a good digital readout.
Mine was not waterproof so I have no idea how people claim they fully submerged theirs in water. There isn't a complete seal around the top where the battery goes, so it's obvious water can get it. For months I simply washed the tip, but last use I decided to test the waterproof claim. I didn't submerge it, but simply held it in mind hand and cleaned it under the running faucet. After drying, I inspected and found the inside battery compartment damp but the item still worked. Tonight is my first time using since and the thing has gone crazy. It showed my BBQ at 99, 103, 225, and 80 degrees. All within seconds. Pressing the buttons seem to get the temperature to stop jumping, but it immediately starts back up. Recalibration button won't register either.
With that being said, I am returning this item. Surprise, I am buying the same one again!! That's how good this thing is. Simply too good to pass up, just know the waterproof claim isn't fully valid. At least not on mine.
When I wash it I only wash the probe portion, so I cannot say if it is waterproof or not. I have had it for two years, and with use about once a week I still haven't had to change out the battery.
