Top Customer Reviews
The company was quick to respond and I was impressed by the faith in their product. They sent me another thermometer immediately.
Unfortunately, I used the thermometer for my Christmas dinner (wrong decision on my part). I thought the thermometer was only Slow... but trusted it was accurate. Not so... My beautiful sage and thyme marinated New York Strip Roast was ruined. I am not a novice at using thermometer probes. I calibrated the temp probe with ice water as instructed by the Taylor insert instructions and made sure to insert the end of the probe into the center of the roast. The temperature was oddly low despite the cooking time... around 105.. Why isnt the temp going up? The third time I took out the roast (cooking interval 5 minutes), the meat was firm and suddenly went up to 135. Panicked, I took out my trusted old analog thermometer and the roast was ruined at 150 degrees.
I did not take pictures of the thermometers at that time since I was so upset but just did a roast last night and was able to obtain a photo for evidence. See the picture: The left side thermometer is the original thermometer that is soooo sloowwww registering 138. The right side thermometer is the replacement they sent me - underestimates the temperature at 119. My analog is in between - registering at about 135.
I really wanted to believe in the product due to their customer service but I am too traumatized by my experience.
First off, the website description is inaccurate. In the event that it changes, I have included a screenshot of the inaccurate description. The website says it includes a 4 inch LCD display. That I didn't really care about, but it's nowhere near 4 inches. The head measures 1 5/16" (3.3 cm) across. The LCD display is only 3/4 of an inch (2 cm). It's still got a big enough display to be easily read, but it's not what the website claims. The only thing that is 4 inches is the fat end of the probe. The first 4 inches of the probe are a bit fatter than the last 7/8". The probe is 4 7/8 inches (12. cm). The head is about an inch (2.54 cm) and the total length is 5 7/8" (14.9 cm).
Another inaccuracy is that the website description claims it is dishwasher safe. I did not see anything on the packaging about this being true. In fact, upon opening the packages, the instruction page says the case exposure is limited to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Most dishwashers require a minimum of 120 degree water into the machine then they heat it another 10-20 (or more) degrees to reach the optimum temperature. A properly set home dishwasher should wash dishes between 140-150 degrees. Some as much as 170 degrees. It should not see less than 130 in any case. This is at or above the maximum allowable temperature for the plastic housing. This is not dishwasher safe if it can only handle 140 degrees.
Another complaint is the readout time. The package says 6 second initial response with a 1 second interval to display changes. The specification section of the instruction page says 6 second initial and 2 second updates. The instruction section says that it takes about 10 seconds to get a correct reading. On top of that, I'm pretty sure when I bought this a few days ago, it said it was a 5 second "instant read". I do not see that on the description anymore. Regardless, the manufacturer cannot seem to come up with the correct time. They claim 6 and 10 seconds. Not terrible, but not the best. Either way, it's not true. I turned my tap on and grabbed a cup of hot water and my stopwatch. The thermometer read 76.1 as the ambient. I stuck the probe in the cup. It took 28 seconds for the temperature reading to stabilize at 126.4 degrees. This means that it took almost 30 seconds for the thermometer to read the temperature. I don't know what other people got when they claim a fast readout. Mine is definitely not fast.
Another complaint that I have is that the probe seems to read different temperatures depending on how far in the water the probe is. The probe read 134.4 degrees with only about the first inch in the water. The entire probe read 126.4. Exactly a 5 degree difference. I repeated this a few times and got the same result. I even stirred the cup to ensure the water wasn't actually hotter on the top. Same result. What gives? That tells me that this thing isn't very accurate. It is fine for my purposes, but still, should be better. The directions say to insert at least one inch for the most accurate readings. Though even at an inch, it adds 5 degrees. No matter what I checked, it was exactly 5 degrees higher just using the tip.
I do like that it has a simple on/off button. It has another button to select which scale you want (F or C). I like that it stays on the scale you chose when you turn it back on after shutdown. It is decently long. Has a clear LCD readout. Seems to have a very good viewing angle. I really like the fact that it can be calibrated. It was reading correctly when I measured ice water and a few other things. I did have the probe completely embedded in the water, though.
I'm not completely happy with this, but it is cheap and will serve my purposes fine. I added pictures of the paper from inside as well as the outer packaging. Not sure why there is a discrepency.
