Very Nice, Sturdy, Useful Thermometer
I bought this to make sure the water I use in bread making is the correct temperature for the yeast. It works well for that task! Now that I have it, I have found it to be very useful for other things, such as checking the internal temperature of the bread after it has been baked or for checking the internal temperature of other foods. It seems to be a very sturdy thermometer. I like that it folds up but opens out very easily when needed. I also like that it uses a standard AAA battery rather than one of those little button batteries. It has an automatic shut-off and it reaches the temperature reading very quickly. I really like this thermometer and recommend it highly.

Works as advertised. When you press the release button it pops open at about a 90 degree angle, then you can open it further until it locks at a full 180 degrees. I've been using it to make delicious chicken, pork, and steak and seems accurate although I have nothing to compare it against.

If works fine, Very useful to tell if thick items being reheated have reached the proper/ safe temperature. The flexibility of the probe to be at and angle facilitates use when heating something in the microwave and checking the temperature without taking it out, which would not be possible if the instrument could only be used in the straight position.

This is a terrific product, especially at that price. It would be a great deal, even at triple the price. The thermometer is very fast; it registers the temperature almost immediately. I purchased the product only to help me make the perfect cup of tea, but I have found it to be indispensable. I use it a lot; it has made me a much better cook.

I used this at Christmas with meat and casseroles. It worked very well. It seems fairly sturdy and doesn't take up a lot of space in the drawer. I would not use it as a constant temperature monitor, but it's great for a quick check to see if something is done.

Easy to use and I can read it without a magnifiying glass!
Just the right size, easy to use, easy to read. A huge improvement over the old-fashioned meat thermometer I have been using up until now (I needed a magnifying glass to read it!). I love that it will tell me the ambient temperature if I turn it on for a few moments. Can't say the old thermometer did that! I like the fact that I can hang it up out of small children's reach.

Great tool with one small design flaw
Sturdy little thermometer, my only gripe is that the button to change from Fahrenheit to Celsius is a tiny, unmarked button on the back. So if you were to say, oh I don't know, drink a few glasses of wine while preparing dinner it's pretty easy to accidentally hit that button and over cook your roast by about two hours, lol. Not that I've ever done that...

Was warming up milk to 180F. The thermometer failed half way into the first time I used it.
Follow up: supplier sent another without me asking. Works perfectly!

Helpful customer support
Initially, I was pleased with the speed and ease of use of this digital thermometer. I liked the design and the ability to fold the probe away for storage.
However, it has now failed within a few months of light usage. It now only reads "LL.L" with no way to reset/calibrate the device.
Customer support contacted me and promptly sent a replacement thermometer. So far, it has functioned perfectly.

This is by far my newest favorite kitchen gadget! I get so much use out of this thermometer, it's hard to think of what I ever did without it.
I have usedan it for meats, oil for frying, water, milk, candy...anything and everything, it gets used almost every day.
It reads the temperature quickly, and very accurately, from the results I've seen. It also has a nice long arm, so you're less likely to get burned...always a plus.
I would definitely recommend this item.
