Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heston Blumenthal Precision Digital Confectionary Thermometer (Kitchen & Home)
Fortunately I didn't read the reviews before I bought this thermometer, if I had I would have missed out on a really first-rate thermometer.
Having recently bought an oven thermometer that was 50 degrees centigrade in error I was looking for something that was accurate. I recently watched a video with Heston cooking and saw that he used this thermometer, and with his attention to detail was pretty sure it would be accurate.
I did a simple test using boiling water and this thermometer recorded 99.8 degrees centigrade, this is quite exceptional accuracy for a modern thermometer.
As a mechanical engineer I specialised in thermodynamics and am appalled by the ludicrous thermometers on sale today, they give a totally inaccurate reading to 2 places of decimals!!!!!
Some of the comments have complained that their thermometers failed very early in its use, I can see no reason why this thermometer should not last if give a modicum of care.
If you want an accurate thermometer with a good temperature range that is very easy to use I can thoroughly recommend it.
