This relatively inexpensive single-probe remote thermometer has pre-programmed doneness settings that can be user-modified, as well as an up/down timer. It lacks a backlight. Accuracy is good and response times are adequate for this type unit. It does not appear to have any weatherproofing features other than a seal around the probe jack on the remote unit. The manufacturer claims a 100′ (30m) range between the transmitter and the receiver. Loss of communication between the transmitter and receiver is NOT annunciated, the last received temperature remains on the receiver’s display.
The pre-programmed taste numbers reflect HACCP guidelines but are easily adjusted to the user’s preferences. When the selected down timer reaches zero, or the preset temperature is reached, an audible alarm goes off and the temperature readout will blink. The timer and the temperature mode can run simultaneously, and each will give a distinctive beep.
The manufacturer’s contact information, including address, website and telephone number are found in the owner’s manual. The unit comes with a 90-day limited warranty.
The mix of features and the relatively low price point merit a Bronze rating.
