BradleySmoker BTDIGTHERMO Review

This relatively inexpensive in-food thermometer has a number of operating modes to make your life easy, including temperature alarm, count-up and count-down timers. The probe can be left in the oven while cooking.

The display operates in either a timer or a meat/doneness mode. In the former, you can use it as an alarmed count-down timer or a plain count-up timer without an alarm. In the meat/doneness mode, you can select from a list of meat varieties and doneness settings. You cannot adjust the temperature at which the alarm will sound from the pre-programmed settings. If you want rare beef, you get it at 140ºF (60ºC), period. The alarm will sound when the probe is at or above the pre-programmed temperature. There is no backlight on the display. The unit is hinged in the middle.

The packaging contains the manufacturer’s name and phone number, but this information is not found on the pamphlet with the instructions. There is no explicit warranty.

The lack of a warranty, coupled with questionable water-resistance and a cheesy case hinge prevent this unit from receiving a favorable recommendation. If you can keep it dry, don’t mind its controlling temperature choices, and don’t drop it, it might be an acceptable choice for the money.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
