This review is from: Kitchen Craft Electronic Digital Multi-Purpose Thermometer & Timer (Kitchen & Home)
We used it for 12 months to measure river temperatures as we are a canoe business on the wye (wyecanoes.com), it worked pretty well, we calibrated it in boiling water and it was pretty close, but the main issue was the fact that it doesn't have an auto shut off so when it got left on the batteries went dead. The batteries it says you need are not actually the right ones, the 2 thin watch style batteries that come with the product have little nipples on them to make them thicker, when we ordered new batteries they turned up without the nipples and wouldn't work, tried jamming some card in there to help but did really work, anyway decided to scrap it and get another, something that has an auto shut off. As for the alarm etc I can't comment on that as i didnt use it.
