A bargain: works great & great company support.
October 1, 2018
It's a bit early to report on this device. Certainly take that into account when looking at my stars for battery life and durability. That said, the device seems to work well so far... the extra length of the probe keeps the grip (and the hand holding the grip) away from the heat. It seems to be accurate, when measuring room temperature, and it feels accurate when measuring meat temperature. And it responds quite quickly. But I'm writing because of their great follow-up. Videos, toll-free helpline AND the offer of a 3 year warranty if you register the device online (1 year otherwise.) Having had a number of meat thermometers that didn't even last a season, I'm impressed. And this one cost less than half of the others. Time will tell about durability etc. But I've always got the warranty if anything goes wrong. (I hardly ever write reviews, but was so impressed with their customer support, that I did.)
UPDATE: Bad news is that the thermometer did fail, part of the LCD display stopped working and it was impossible to read the temperature that it was reading. The great news is that I reached out to customer support about the warranty and they stood by it— I had a new thermometer in a few days. Still an awesome product backed by awesome customer service.
