By C. Clement on July 6, 2001
This thermometer has been very accurate for the wide variety of uses to which I've subjected it so far. This includes not only meats (we're talking steak, hotdogs, salmon, chicken, any kind of meat) but leftovers I microwaved (curiosity) water for proofing yeast (I never followed that part of the recipe before) and even bathwater (again, curiosity.)
I gave this thermometer 4 stars instead of 5 because it is very sensitive. Or maybe it is afraid of the dark. You see, I keep it in a drawer. It really, *really* seems to like being used because every time I open that drawer something bumps against it and I hear the little chirp of my thermometer turning on.
Also, one time I heard a very quiet high-pitched sound and it was the thermometer which was on. I had trouble figuring it out at first, but the sound was so persistent that I finally figured it out. So now I am paranoid when I open the drawer and hear the chirp, that it will stay on and make that noise again.

I love this thermometer! The neatest part about it is that you can watch it go from rare to medium to well done. It is very accurate. I had a Maverick thermometer before and loved it, but my husband put it in the sink in dishwater. DO NOT PUT THIS THERMOMETER IN WATER! The thermometer I had before was a small one, but this is a nice size. You can check a single burger or a chicken breast on a George Foreman Grill, plus you can check a roast in the oven or a pork chop on the grill. In this day and age where meat needs to be done, what a wonderful cooking tool to have.

This thermometer is very large and easy to handle (32 cm / 1' 0-1/2" long) and its large display (both done-ness and actual temperature) is easy to read, making it ideal for oven, BBQ or stove-top use. It works perfectly for measuring the internal temperature of meats, breads and other non-liquid items as they cook.

The upper part of the thermometer is obviously not waterproof (which I did not need to be told) but the description does not point out the fact that the probe must not be used to measure the temperature of liquids. It cannot, therefore, be used for the many liquid temperature applications I had planned. This limitation should have been stated clearly in the description.

4 stars overall: 5 stars for the specific uses I have stated, 3 stars for "liquid incompatibility" and the five second wait time (for the display to register the temperature) which seems somewhat lengthy, given today's technology - no doubt because if the heft of the probe.

This item seems to work just great, but I didn't expect it to be so HUGE. It's a least a foot long and takes up a lot of space in the drawer... just not quite sure why it needs to be so big... Works totally great though, would have rated it about a 3.5 just based on it's unexpected size (probably my own fault).

I've had this probe for exactly two years. It just today started having an inaccurate reading, I changed the battery but it still reads way under what the temp actually is, I compared it with another thermometer. So evidently something inside has worn out. Not a bad run for a $20 device. It has been absolutely correct for two full years.
I've come back to order a new one, because I love this thing! I use it for only one purpose and that is to watch the temp rise in my electric teapot which is tall; I insert the probe along with the cold water and within a minute or two it's ready. Can't be without this thermometer, looked a long time to find a tall one.

Much larger than picture led me to believe, a bit bulky. Tip is too large to be fast responding. Meat is consistently overcooked.

great price. great product. have spent 10x this through the years for cheap thermometers that never worked well. This one works. Have had many fine roasts, good luck with cheese and yogurt making, etc.
Not expensive, works fine! very happy

I got this instant-read thermometer primarily to check internal temp of artisinal breads, but it soon replaced my meat thermometer. It is so quick and, in side-by-side test with my trusty old dial thermometer, it was very accurate. My only issue with it is that it sometimes - not always - wants to read the room temperature for an extended time. That means that I have to remove the battery when storing it in order to save battery life. Minor inconvenience, but it would rate five stars otherwise.
