This review is from: eKitch digital food probe thermometer & timer for food, wine, meat - great in oven cooking gadget for Roasting Perfection every time (Kitchen & Home)
This tool was very useful when it worked, but it started failing after a month of usage.
Clearly, user feedbacks on amazon.com are the same: many people report failures of this kind of item. I say this kind of item, because this is not the only thermometer to be plagued by this failure issue, in the contrary, many of them seem to be failing randomly.
It seems to me that the issue is not so much with the electronics but instead with the probe itself, which is identical for all the failing electronic thermometers.
I've yet to understand what happens, but either the probe cannot withstand very high temperatures, or maybe high levels of humidity, or the use on induction breaks it ? I don't know. But what is sure is, there is a serious design issue with these tools.
