This in-oven/in-food thermometer has a hinged readout, pre-programmed temperatures, and pre-done warning alarms. Accuracy is good, and the probe/readout is faster to respond than most in-food thermometers. There is no timer function or backlight. There are magnets on the rear of the unit to fasten it to a metal surface.
The readout has the usual USDA doneness temperatures programmed into the unit. These can be modified to the user’s preferences, but these are reset to the default values when the unit is switched off. The alarm function includes a pre-alert as the temperature approaches the chosen value and an over-cooked indicator when the actual temperature exceeds the chosen value by 10ºF.
The manufacturer’s contact info, including address, telephone number, e-mail and website, is found in the instruction sheet. The unit is covered by a one-year warranty.
The thermometer performs as promised. It has good accuracy and faster response times than are really necessary for this type of unit. Construction is solid, and the probe cable has a silicone sheath. Nothing outstanding, but nothing to complain about. We give it a Bronze medal for meeting expectations.
