The Maverick RediCheck Remote features a transmitter that reads the internal food temperature with a digital electronic food probe, then sends that information wirelessly up to 100 feet away, freeing you from standing next to the oven or grill during the cooking period. When the desired temperature is reached an alarm goes off. Place the transmitter near the oven or grill. Insert the tip of the Food Probe into the center of the food being cooked, and run the probe's lead wire out through the door connecting to the transmitter. The wire is flexible metal sheath and is rated for over 500 degrees F., and isn't hurt by closing the door. The receiver picks up the signal, and displays: the actual internal food temperature, the "set" or target desired temperature, and the type of meat. Each meat type has default taste "doneness" choices for each type of taste (rare, medium, etc.) but you can override any preset temperature and choose your own.
Designed for accuracy and remote readings, this digital Maverick cooking thermometer untethers you from the oven or the grill. You can even lie down in the hammock knowing the unit will signal you when food reaches pre-programmed settings. In addition to gauging internal temperature, the thermometer tests degree of doneness, tracks cooking time with a 24-hour timer, and can be programmed for six different categories of meat. When your roast or turkey reaches ideal levels, the receiver beeps and flashes its alert.
Composed of two digital units and a stainless-steel probe on a heat-resistant wire, the kit requires some basic practice at first. After that, use is straightforward and simple. In action, the transmitter shows the current temperature, while the receiver shows meat category, doneness level, set and current temperatures, and cooking time. Each of the digital units includes an integrated stand, and the receiver also sports a clip for your belt or apron. The kit requires four AAA batteries total, which Maverick includes to get you started. --Emily Bedard

The range was less than expected. I would put the temperature probe into the smoker on the back deck, and it wouldn't reach through the open bedroom window maybe 25 feet away. I had to move the smoker right next to the window to get the signal to come through. It may even connect for a while, then drop the signal. I then had to turn off both the transmitter and receiver, and turn them both back on at the same time to get them to re-connect.
When it worked, it seemed to do well, but I cannot recall a single time that I used the thermometer, and didn't have an issue with the HHH error, or had to reset it for some other reason like it lost signal etc.
Today after 9 months of light use, maybe ten or so low temperature cooks it seems like my Redi Check thermometer finally kicked the can. I started a slow cook at 215 degrees, and after some transmission issues, resets, and even a new pair of batteries, it's registering 350 degrees or so at room temperature. Needless to say, I will be looking for a new brand for my next meet thermometer.
I'm going to address complaints raised by other reviewers. I haven't had any trouble with the probe. It's worked fine and the temperature is more accurate than I expected. It indicates room temperature correctly and when put in boiling water (with the probe not touching the bottom of the pan) it reads 212F. The food I've cooked using it comes out appropriately done. The range is a little shorter than I expected but not so short that it's a problem.
In short, I would buy this product again.
Recently I used it with a 1" steak in a foreman grill. Steak came out simply perfect.
I've read other reviews where folks bashed the unit. To be fortcoming, I too almost wanted to toss it it once or twice! Only, because I forgot how to calibrate the two components. It's really a simple process if you remember which unit you're supposed to turn on first. The receiver first then the transmitter (within 30 seconds as instructed). It reads perfect every time. i would recommend it and get it again.
So far, I've used it on our charcoal Weber grill to satisfaction. You must be careful not to press down o the lid of the grill in order you don't crush the sensitive cable attached to the probe. It's so nice to chill out inside watching a game, show, etc while the food is cooking in the grill on the patio. When the food reaches your desired temperature the receiver picks up the signal, and displays/beeps the actual internal food temperature. Great product.
May 20, 2013 - I must re-iterate completely this is a nice gadget! I've used it at least 20 - 25 times and it's a nice cooking tool to have.
