Save some money and buy the folding type
on 14 April 2016
Disappointing product as it claims to be instant and alas it is not.
I already had a cheaper version that takes just as long to register the final temperature as this one does so was not much impressed when I watched the screen instantly register a temperature and then slowly slowly climb up to the final figure.
The swivel top would be a useful feature if you were leaving it poking out of a piece of meat and wanted to angle it so you could keep and eye on it but thinking about it, I cannot foresee anyone ever doing that (unless waiting for the 'not' instant reading to show up).
The little slide/pen holder container is equally odd as it has a pocket clip and it therefore useless for bare chests, T shirts, shirts without a breast pocket, polo shirts but ideal if you are a nurse, fireman, policeman etc and still wearing your work clothes complete with an in-built pocket.
There was a time when Weber products were solid, quality, reliable, long lasting and did what they said they would do. Not so with this one imho so save a few pounds and buy one of the folding type that cost less and fit in a trouser pocket and take just the same amount of time to give you the temp info!
