abunda_amazon_reviews Update, 20 Mar 2020: Really enjoy using this thermometer while cooking at home, use it multiple times per week. Even though it's not instant read, I'd say it usually approaches temp within about 3 seconds. If I could change anything about it, I'd love for it to have a backlight as I often use it outside at night while cooking on the grill. Original review from 17 Sep 2019: Haven't gotten a chance to use it much yet, but I tested it right out of the package in some boiling water and ice water and it read 100.1 C and 0.8 C respectively, well within the stated accuracy tolerances. Wanted to add some photos of the packaging for anyone who's interested. Display is easy to read as long as there's light, and it's very intuitive to use if you just want to take some temps or switch between F and C. It has a few more advanced features like HOLD/MIN/MAX and turning off the auto-shutoff, just read the directions and it's pretty easy to figure out.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 17, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Accurate out of the package;;Elliott Fackler;;;I put this in my pocket when I grill, when I'm cooking in the crockpot, to verify the cooking temp accuracy of other cooking appliances. You push the on button, stick it in food for about 3 seconds, get temp, push and hold button to turn off, replace safety cap, stick back in pocket. Also, not only do I wash the metal probe, but I rinse the whole unit to make sure my dirty fingers aren't transmitting germs...and it's still working. My experience: time to good temp reading - 3 seconds Edit: Still using this little tool and it still rocks. Baby formula? Bam, right on the dot every time.

You can use this to check the accuracy of all others. It reads quick. One good use is checking how hot the water is from your faucet. Let the water run a bit until it is hot than check. It should be at 130 degrees F. for sanitizing dishes or laundry. Dust mites die at this temp. It doesn't have an automatic timed shut off so the power button must be pushed to turn it off. But I've left mine on for days and the battery has lasted well over a year. It has a button battery which can be replaced. I have to order another one of these because the first one is missing. Used the first one for almost 2 years without changing the battery even after leaving the unit on for days. It is accurate as possible. Plus or minus 2 degrees as stated can just as easily be exact. That is a range, not a fact. Laws of thermodynamics dynamics say that water is in all states, liquid, gas and ice. All at the same time. It.s just a matter of percent.

If testing boiling water, at sea level and the standard barometric pressure, it must read less than 212F as any water that reaches that temp becomes steam. I use this for meats including chicken and it is right on the mark. One use is for bread. The target temp for perfect bread is 195 F. Take the bread out at that temp and just like meat, the temp will rise to 200. The bread will be baked perfectly.

If testing boiling water, at sea level and the standard barometric pressure, it must read less than 212F as any water that reaches that temp becomes steam. I use this for meats including chicken and it is right on the mark. One use is for bread. The target temp for perfect bread is 195 F. Take the bread out at that temp and just like meat, the temp will rise to 200. The bread will be baked perfectly. No reason to spend more for a temp probe as this one works so well.

5.0 out of 5 stars

This is the one you want.
I'm a kitchen professional; this is better than the ones we use, and they're pretty darn good. This little guy reads, tracks and settles really quickly. Dependable within 3 to 5 seconds, which is plenty fast enough for making cheese, beer, pickling, canning, etc. the auto shut off stays on long enough to be useful, but not so long that it strikes me as wasteful. It's comfortable in the hand; the rotated cap attaches to the thermometer, which gives a nice, safe reach for big 24+ quart pots and kettles. For the price and features, this is what you want. I've had and used the $100+ versions; they too will wear out or break. Truth be told, I don't see or feel a whole lot lower quality here. Keep in mind, this is not made for use in an oven or submerged...
