Never have a dry turkey or roast again!Dec 26, 2004
By D. Kessenger
This probe thermometer is perfect for candy making and roasting! I purchased mine at a brick and mortar store for $19.99! This is a great deal here at Amazon!
Simple controls without extra buttons and options to confuse you in a busy kitchen help this probe thermometer help you! Simply insert the probe into the meat, as per directions, plug the wire into the electronic device and set your desired internal temperature! Leave the probe in the meat and put the electronic portion on the outside.
Roasts are cooked to perfection whether medium rare or well is your preference. Turkey white meat is not dry when you set it to 160F!
Also can be used as a timer! It hangs on anything metal with two strong magnets in the back.
I've cooked two turkeys and several roasts with this item. Everyone raved over my moist delicious turkey and perfectly done roasts! A must have for your kitchen!

No on/off switchSep 10, 2006
This unit doesnot have timer at all. It works as expected however there are no on/off switch so you either leave it or take the batery out. Bad design.
Good while it lastedJul 26, 2010

I bought one of these 2 years ago to use in place of the pop up timers in my Turkey. Since I only use this at Thanksgiving and Christmas it had been used 4 times and worked great. The only thing I didn't like was that I had to remove the battery to store it. It also would have been nice if it came with a plastic storage case or a bag to store it in, but that wasn't an important feature to me. This week I needed to use it and while wiping the probe I accidently dropped the probe and it hit the kitchen faucet. I caught it before it hit the sink. It only dropped 3 inches and that was it for it. The room temp immediately jumped to 157 degrees F. It did finally drop to 134, but goes no lower. I ran the tip under some lukewarm water and the temp doesn't change until I take it out from under the water. It jumps back up in the 150 range. I know that I broke it by dropping it, but it only fell a few inches and should be able to withstand that small amount of force. It isn't made of glass. If fact my glass thermometers manage to withstand being dropped from a higher distance than this was. I will be replacing it with another brand in the hopes that it can withstand what I consider normal usage and mishaps.
