Oh, well...at least it looks nice.
April 20, 2018
I am surprised at how high the ratings are for this thermometer. I find little to recommend other than it looks nice, but it won't help me bake efficiently. First off, one of the AAA "standard duty" (whatever that means, besides cheap) batteries was corroded and I needed to replace them both in order to get the instrument to function. OK, forgiveable, but I found the tiny on/off button very hard to push without using a finger nail. It was very difficult to loosen the probe from the storage position using two fingers and a thumb while gripping with the other hand--an issue when your hands are wet or full of bread dough. The thermometer did not "instant read" the temperature – – it took well over six seconds to get within the correct range. At that point I didn't bother trying any of the other functions. It is on its way back to Amazon. I am going back to my not-so-pretty ThermoPro TP03A digital probe which costs the same but is just as accurate, faster, and easier to use.
