By: Bill McGrath
This unit is no longer available.
The ThermoWorks Long Stem Digital Thermometer is a well-made unit with excellent accuracy but slow response times. It cannot be left in the oven/grill while cooking.
The thermistor sensor used in this thermometer yields fine accuracy but is somewhat slow to respond, making it less than ideal for use as a quick-read food thermometer. There is no backlight but the digits are large and easy to read in reasonable light. It has a min/max function but no hold button. It is switchable between F and C, and will auto-shutoff after 4 hours. The unit doesn’t have an IP rating, but is called splash-resistant by the manufacturer. If you need a long probe and aren’t concerned with a quick response, this would be a good choice.
The manufacturer’s contact info, including address, telephone number, website and e-mail, is found on the instruction sheet. There is no explicit warranty period stated, but the manufacturer typically stands behind its products.
The slow response time makes this unit a poor choice if you’re looking for a quick-read thermometer. We’re not recommending this unit for this reason alone. If your needs are different, this could be a good choice as its price is low and its performance is otherwise excellent.
This thermometer is no longer available. I has been replaced bythe RT-304-8: ThermoWorks
