This device should work well with measuring temperature of candy, melted soap, oils, foods cooked at relatively low temperature such as breads, or food that you are re-heating. It should also work very well for examining doughs.
It should also work well on most non-metallic painted surfaces.
It should work *somewhat* on windows, as they have a fairly high emissivity, and low transmittance to infrared (that is, infrared light does not pass through them even though visible light does).
Do *not* use it on any unpainted metals.
Product does NOT have adjustable emissitivity which means it can read higher or lower than the real surface temperature depending on the reflective consistency of the surface being measured.
This product is fine for a quick ball park temperature reading and is great to use to scan across a surface to find any temperature deviation like a wall area.
I am very pleased with my purchase. This device is very quick to respond and it seems to be quite accurate when used properly. One of the main reasons I chose this infrared thermometer over the Fluke, Raytek or Sears Craftsman was that it uses 2 AAA batteries rather than a 9-volt battery. I've had the Kintrex for about a month now and I'm still using the original batteries which show no signs of weakness yet. The display is very easy to read even in a dark room (it's backlighted) and you can switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius simply by pressing a button.
As far as I'm concerned, you can't beat the Kintrex for the price.
First, the display is backlit and very readable inside, but just a bit faint outside in bright daylight. It fits the palm of the hand better than other devices belonging to friends I've tried, and provides sturdy, dependable, and accurate information indoors.
I bought mine to check for temperature leaks for recaulking and insulating my house, but I am astounded to how useful it is indoors. First, in the kitchen, check that oven temperature or the outside of the loaf of bread you are baking. I bought mine for that, although remember what other writers have said about how large an area you may be measuring relative to the laser pointer.
In your home entertainment cabinet, check the air temperature around your receiver and other gear -- you may find out that it's getting warmer than you want -- and you'll see the consequences of leaving that power on. Same with your PCs -- check the output temp of the fans on your laptop. If you want to know if your A/C is working properly, a quick shot up to the output baffle will confirm the temp of the cold air coming out there -- no more getting a ladder or stool to hold your hand up to it and guess. Check food temperature in the kitchen, including your freezer or fridg, and make sure you and your family are safe. I am sure there are dozens, if not hundreds of uses for this gadget around your home, workshop, office, and kitchen.

It worked great for a couple years. Now it's a $50 cat toy laser pointer. Maybe the most disappointing but not surprising is not getting a response from Kintrix after emailing... Read morePublished 1 month ago by R. Boss
