I bought this to measure the temp of several aquariums - it's great, instant reading when pointed at the tank, then move on to the next. Bright clear backlit screen for results, takes a regular 9v square battery which is supplied.

Obviously I spent the first few days measuring the temperature of everything from my dog, oven, tea, the sun (results inconclusive on that one - possibly slightly out side the usable range) as well as winding the cat up with the laser pointer. So to sum up, it's a thermometer which functions very accurately and quickly, looks like a gun and has a laser on it. Obviously everyone needs one of these in their life.

I bought this primarily to use in the kitchen, but also partly just out of curiosity as to how good it could actually be.

I’ve found it to be very accurate within the temperature range I’ve used it in (around 20-200°C) when compared with my independently calibrated thermocouple. You just point and pull the trigger and you get the temperature reading to within 0.1°C on the screen.

The screen has a backlight which can be turned on or off as can the laser guide.

It’s worth pointing out that the temperature reading is for a circle of an increasing diameter depending on the distance you are from the object you're taking the reading from. This is at a ratio of roughly 12:1, so if you’re 90cm from an object then the temperature reading you receive is for a 7.5cm diameter circle, centred on the red laser point.

I’ve found it great for checking oven/pan temperatures, the heat of food before serving and also really useful for checking the temperature of sugar when making caramel, nougat and marshmallows.

One thing that I have found is that if you’re using this in the kitchen and steam gets onto the lens of the thermometer then the readings you get are not very accurate, not ideal if you’re trying to heat a ban of water to a specific temperature, but in the same way it’s not a big problem as it’s easy enough to give the lens a quick wipe.

Overall I have to say that I'm very happy with this thermometer, it’s very well built and accurate, I’d thought it was going to be a bit of a gimmick when I bought it, but instead I now find myself using it all the time and relying on it.

Cheap but certainly up to the job. Checked against an expensive professional calibrated model, the readings were exactly the same.

This is accurate enough within a couple of feet of object being tested (well within 1 degree c always) i use it for my stove and its flue pipe temp, also to balance my C H radiators and for checking the fresh water for aquarium is same as aquarium temp (so water changes gives no shock to the fish).

I bought this to help with our cooking. For Christmas day we were going to have triple cooked chips which required the chip fat to be at specific temperature. I am also planning on doing all grain home brew and again wanted a contactless way of measuring temperature.

The item arrived promptly, with a 9V battery and is so simple to use. I don't know ho long I spent zapping my hand, wall and radiators, the dog and my children to see their temperature and it soon turned into a game of guess the temperature. I found a cold spot in our dining room which explains why it's always so cold, was able to measure the temperature of our oven and ended up cooking superb chips for Christmas day lunch. I have heard sceptical comments about using this to measure liquid temperatures as it will only measure the surface temperature, but a bit of stirring will normally make sure the surface temperature reflects the whole of the the liquid.

On the technical side, I am not sure how accurate it truly is, but other reviews have commented on this. All I can say s that it is useful piece of kit, a bit of fun too, and will no doubt be well used for years to come.

This thermometer has done the job I bought it for, to find cold spots in our house. I searched our house for draughts prior to getting this item without success but within a few minutes using the GM550 I had identified several cold spots. This thermometer seems to be fairly accurate around room temp. but below freezing point it is a long way out. I took it outside on a frosty morning when my out door thermometer was at -1.2 C. and I was getting readings around -13 C. As the product description says (Measurement Range: Between -50 °C and 550 °C) but (Operating Temperature: Between 0°C and 40°C) maybe the unit would not be accurate as the operating temp was below freezing.
I then went to the deep freeze opened the lid and aimed the device in the freezer, I got readings between -35 C and -37 C. When I took items from the freezer and tested them I got reading from -30 to -35 C. I have tested temp in deep freeze and it is showing -18.7 C.
I have not had the opportunity to test at high temp yet but did test on boiling kettle aand got reading of 60 C but as this is a polished surface I did not expect an accurate result. So beware of accuracy of this item.

What nice surprise to find something is better than described. It is a well built quality item. I have used a similar tool costing 5times the price but I think this one is better.
