The BlizeTec digital thermometer is an inexpensive unit intended for food use. It cannot be left in the oven or grill while cooking.
This unit has marginal accuracy and fairly slow response times, making it a questionable choice for food preparation. It is minimally sealed, making it susceptible to water incursion and damage. The display is small, with no back light, making it difficult to read, especially in low light. When the unit is opened, as one might do to replace the battery, the wiring for the sensor slides out of the stainless steel sleeve, making its contact with the metal sleeve a hit-or-miss proposition. This could affect the accuracy and response time if the thermal gel that resides in the sleeve were to be removed or reduced.
The street price for this unit is more like $20. The instructions are printed on the back of the packaging. There is no contact info for manufacturer. There is no warranty stated. In the event of failure, you’d be out the price of the unit. We do not recommend this product.
