Review: Who better to ask to review a thermometer than someone who has a son that is an Executive Chef? Or their husband smokes large amount of beef brisket and pork butt for a food truck.

As far as thermometers go this is a product that for the price isn’t too bad. The digital read out is large enough that you don’t need those reading glasses. It seems to be very accurate in its readouts along with the timer it works for not only your more experienced cook but also your novice cook.

For your average person the 8 inch probe may seem to be a bit of an overkill but a lot of people just want something that works when opening the oven door and not have to pull out the meat that is being cooked this allows you to do that. Also when you have that large turkey cooking for the holidays the larger probe allows you to get a more accurate readout for that center ensuring that it is safe to serve to your guests.

However with the good their sometimes is a bad side to products which may not matter to the average person. I didn’t have to change the batteries but if it is needed the rather small screws that need to be removed in order to replace the battery may present a problem. Also, this doesn’t work well if you need something to stay close to the meat or in the meat for any length of time as the extreme heat may cause issues. It isn’t something that can be left in the oven of even the smoker/and or grill for that matter.

The cover for the probe is nice as is the clip to keep the probe covered. The probe contains the sensitive components that are needed to get the temperatures of the meat. It would be nice to have the temps somewhere on the cover for a quick reference guide. The packaging isn’t anything fancy but, is not really something that is needed because it just gets thrown out anyhow.

Overall the thermometer is great and the price makes it very affordable. It does the job it is needed to do and is something every kitchen should have.

I would recommend this product …it works well and the price makes it affordable.
