Poor accuracy, 11 July 2011
I bought 2 of these thermometers and received one extra free of charge.
There's no specification of accuracy in the product details but, at the price, and given that thermometry is not a new science, I'd have expected accuracy to within 1 degree. One of the thermometers showed a 3 degree difference between the min and max side, while the other 2 showed a 2 degree difference.
One of the three had one of the 'needles' missing.
I contacted the seller who just told me about their returns policy - they made no effort to tell me what accuracy to expect, so I don't know if the thermometers are faulty or just poor quality.
If you want to measure min/max temperatures to within 1 degree, this thermometer seems unsuitable.
