The accurate thermometer allows users to choose between several preset options based on USDA/FDA standards for their selected meat. After choosing the appropriate setting, users insert the probe into the thickest section of desired meat, taking care to pierce cleanly in one sweep to prevent overflowing juices. The probe fares well inside hot barbecues ranging from -4 to 482 degrees F and reads meat temperatures up to 199 degrees F. However, temperature readings may be affected by abnormally long cooking times. As the meat begins to cook, the beeper remote can be clipped onto an apron pocket or belt loop, allowing the chef to tend to other tasks. When the meat reaches its wellness point as designated by internal temperature, the probe sends a digital signal to the beeper, triggering its alarm. The probe and remote communicate at full signal for up to 80 feet, though walls and other blockage will reduce the range potential. The remote also beeps with increasing volume when losing contact with the probe sensor to insure that the user is aware. This thermometer system also can be used in ovens under similar circumstances. This item comes equipped with two AAA batteries and is imported. Weber may offer a warranty for this product. The digital thermometer measures 4-3/4 by 2-1/2 inches with 1-inch thickness and weighs 1 pound upon shipping. --Jessica Reuling

I really works.
1. Just to test things out I wheeled my grill to the far edge of my property then went down to my basement. I still got a full signal about 80 linear feet away through a brick wall and two thick plaster-lathe interior walls.
2. The monitor warns you when your food is within 5 degrees of your desired doneness so you have time to react..
3. It really really cooked my steak medium rare.
4 Minor annoyance: It has handy preprogrammed settings for rare, medium rare, medium etc. for beef, veal and lamb. But it assumes you want hamburger, fish and poultry well done. In case you don't want these foods cooked that well you need to find an appropriate temperature setting from one of the other foods. For example If you need to turn a turkey and want to be warned when it raches 145 degrees you'd need to set the monitor for beef and medium rare, which happens to be 145 degrees. Would have been nice if it had the option to directly set the monitor for a specific temperature.
Still this thing is absolutely great. Just what I always wished I had.
But so far I've gone through three sensor wires in that short time period. Each time they failed (reading of 199° immediately after turning it on), I've had to call Weber and request a replacement. I was always accused of closing the lid on the wire, which I never did -- I would always make sure the wire was placed in one of the little notches on the side of our Weber grill. But to their credit, they eventually would agree to send me out a new one.
After the third sensor wire failed just recently, they sternly informed me that "this would be the last time" they would replace it since I've had the product for more than a year. The unit has a one-year warranty, but I guess it doesn't matter that I never got more than a year out of any of the sensors.
If they improved the durability of the sensor wire then they would have a great product on their hands. As it stands now, I'd steer clear of this product.
I have used this for cooking slow and you have to turn it back on after 8 hours as it turns off to save batteries. The range on the unit is very good and will go through brick walls and cement floors.
I highly recommend this if you take the easy precaution of wrapping the wire in aluminum foil from the probe and any area that will be inside the heat area.
The unit seems very accurate, and its great to have it remote. However, I have already ruined one of the two probes, as I inserted it into the meat immediately, while I was still searing. My grill temp must have been over the 480 degree limit, as the probe has now been damaged and does not work at all.
