Good value at the price
on 21 January 2014
My wife makes Jam and a variety of other things to tempt the palate of our 13 year old boy; peanut brittle and the like. All of these items require an accurate temperature to enable them to set correctly.
I purchased this item for just over £3.00 and it arrived reasonably quickly from the far east supplier. It is packaged in a protective case for storage and has batteries fitted. It is not that robust, but with care and storage in its case, I foresee it lasting a long-time. It is simple to use, switch it on, insert the probe and the temperature changes on the LED display. Is it accurate? Wel it does appear to be. I tried it in comparison with some very expensive and accurate thermometer probes that we use at work and it was accurate within about 1% across a temperature range -18 to 350C.
Ideal therefore for light use and to be honest, what else can you expect of the price?
