The Taylor Digital Cooking Thermometer/Timer provides superior results for professional and amateur chefs alike. This digital thermometer measures temperatures from 32- to 392-degrees Fahrenheit. A durable stainless steel probe with a 4-foot silicone cord allows monitoring of food without removing it from the oven. Additional features include an automatic time and temperature alarm. Features a stand-up display for countertop use, or a magnet for attachment to an oven door. Requires two (2) AAA batteries (included).
Opening the oven to check on a food's temperature means wasting the cook's time and losing oven temperature and moisture--not to mention a face full of steam. This thermometer prevents those problems. Insert the instrument's 6-inch stainless-steel probe into a roast beef or turkey and monitor the time and temperature (from 32 to 392 degrees F) on the thermometer's large digital display, which connects to the probe with a 4-foot cord. The control panel sets cooking time and temperature, and an alarm sounds when either is reached. Fully opened, the thermometer/timer is 5 inches high, but it folds flat for compact storage. Magnets on the back permit it to be temporarily mounted on a metal surface. --Fred Brack

After using this just a few times, it now reads about 20 degrees Fahrenheit too warm, and there's no way to calibrate it. Good thing it has a 1 year warranty, so I'll be sending it back to Taylor for repair or replacement. In the future, I'd spend a little more and get a good one (at least one with better reviews!) I'll update this review when/if I get a replacement back from Taylor.
The cord on the probe is nice and long. I had no problems setting the turkey in the oven and setting the thermometer outside of the oven. Since I hadn't used this type of thermometer before, I wasn't sure about the cord to the probe, so the excess I just pulled outside of the oven so that it didn't heat up. This worked well for me.
I see others commented on the probe not lasting long. I only use these a few times a year so I'm not concerned with that. I plan to buy another probe so that I have one onhand in case I discover one isn't working when I pull it out on a holiday.
Pro: It's cheap.
Con: The only pro I can think of is that it is cheap. I opened the box, turned it on, and was happy when I got an accurate ambient temperature reading of 70. Unfortunately, that lasted for about 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, the temperature was jumped all over the place. Sometimes fiddling with the cable of the probe would make a difference, but not always. My 70 degree room reading dropped to a freezing 48 degrees. Then 80. Then 55. I decided to check what level of cooked I myself was, and it read anywhere between 40-80 depending on its mood. Then I decided to check boiling water. That was about 150-180 ... Clearly it was in a bad mood. Then a few hours later it returned to being accurate for a few minutes.
Clearly there is an issue with the quality of the probes, as many reviews point this out. The device itself looked decent enough for the low price and certainly better than the much more expensive ET-733 that ultimately replaced it. With any product you can expect some DOA out of the box, but looking at the reviews I should have listened to, this one is plagued with problems.
Just don't do it. By its own measurement, it has a heart of ice.
There is one design issue I have with it, but too many people take points off for something they should have seen when looking at the illustrations or comments, I don't.
I wish that they had a spindle molded into the unit to wrap the cord around (like another brand does), it would make storage easier.
One tip I have for any users of this type of product is to wrap the section of the cord that comes out of the oven (esp. if it's a toaster oven) in foil. This will prevent the hot metal of the door from melting the insulation of the cord.
