used twice - failed twice,
This review is from: Lcd Digital Probe Food Thermometer Temperature Catering (Kitchen & Home)
This clearly demonstrates that you only get what you pay for. Half way through cooking a dish the display went out and I was unable to continue using it. Next day I bought a new battery, put it in and the thermometer worked fine. Tried the old battery and the thermometer was fine. Discovered that if I wiggled the battery the thermometer went off and on, So I adjusted the contacts and all was fine. Last night I was holding a saucepan of fat at precisely 180 degs (Heston Blumenthal triple cooked chips) and again the thermometer failed. Impossible to get it to work again, so now its taking the internal temperature of my dustbin - or probably not!
