Saber Grills A00AA3814 EZ Temp Digital Thermometer Review

The Saber Grills EZ Temp Digital Thermometer is a well-made, accurate, and fast-reading handheld unit. It can display in seven different languages, with English as the default. It cannot be left in food while cooking.

The probe folds under the body of the handle when not in use. The Set button is used to power the unit up and down, as well as for setting a custom alarm or doneness temperature. If one wants to use the pre-programmed meat and doneness values, one can scroll through them by meat type and doneness using the + and – and Set buttons. Alternately, one can select the User category and set any temperature within the operating range of the thermometer. When the preset temperature is reached, the audible alarm will sound and an icon of a fire will appear on the display. If the temperature remains above the set value, the alarm will go off every 30 seconds.

The unit will automatically shut itself off after 5-6 minutes if the temperature is lower than 122ºF (50ºC) and no buttons have been pressed. The Set button will illuminate the backlight for about 10 seconds each time it is pressed.

The manufacturer’s name is found on the package, but no other contact info is supplied. The unit is covered by a one year limited warranty.

We give this thermometer a Gold medal for fine performance, a modest price, and quality feel.

grouchy?

1) Please try the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

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.
