I was looking for accurate & relliable meat thermometer that also portable and easy to cary & use. This product is perfect. I was able to accurately detect the internal meat temperature quick & accurately. Before I had this product, I always lean on my gut instinct when grilling which always hit & miss experience. With this help, I can get my steak or any meats perfectly cook every single time. One drawback is there was no preset meat temperature. you need to memorize the cooking temperature for each different type of meat and cooking style (rare, medium, medium well) or keep the manual handy.
Anyone who tells you they don't need a thermometer and can "just tell" when things are done is either undercooking or overcooking their meat most of the time. The trick to juicy chicken breast is to remove it from the pan just before it comes to temperature, and for that you need an accurate thermometer. I've been using this almost daily for about a week and it's pretty great. The readings match the other thermometer I have (which isn't as convenient to use as this one), so hopefully that means they're both accurate. I enjoy the magnet on the back as it sticks to the side of my refrigerator, saving valuable drawer space. The magnet could be a bit stronger, but it gets the job done. I wasn't sure which one to buy as there were many similar options, but so far I'm super happy to have chosen this one.
Great product. I love that it is magnetic and can be stuck to the stove or fridge, making it easy to find. I was so sick of digging through drawers trying to find my traditional thermometers. This item is great. The digital display and features are all so easy to use! The "needle" part of the thermometer is nice and long, making it perfect for turkeys or other thick proteins and dishes. Way better than the tiny little thermometers that would read the food was done, but were too short to hit the center... resulting in raw middles! This is great! I love this thermometer so much. Easy to use. Looks nice. Magnetic. A+
