Overall the unit appears ideal, well-made with every feature. I checked the accuracy before using it, very good. My first use was a nice joint of beef topside, into which I poked the probe, then carefully placed the joint with wire attached into the pre-heated oven, making sure that the wire was straight. Within a minute the temperature alarm went off, reading hundreds of degrees C. I removed the meat, thrust the probe as fully into the meat as possible and replaced in the oven. Again, within a minute the alarm went off. I then had to resort to removing the jouint every 20 minutes to see the internal temperature,
It seems to me that heat is travelling from the part of the probe outside the meat to the sensor which is presumably at the tip of the probe, giving a false reading. It could be a poorly manufactured probe.
