Inovative and a great bargain for two units
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2018
I first saw this device in several Youtube vlogs. I was so impressed that I had try it. I got the 2 unit bundle so I could give one as a gift. I actually tested both at the same time first. The app, which I installed on my tablet will support up to four units. The fact that the unit shows both the inside and outside temperatures is a plus. I was worried that the steel door on my oven would block the signal but it didn't. The wood block it comes in is the charging base that uses a AAA battery which comes with it. Be sure to remove the clear plastic tab that blocks the end of the battery and let it charge the probe for a few hours. The base has magnets on the back so you can mount it on a steel surface. The probe is very easy to clean. Just be careful when removing it because it can be very hot. The only problem I had was with thinner cuts of meat 1" or less. It would not accurately report the internal temperature. This would fool the app into thinking that correct internal temperature had been reached prematurely. One nice feature in the app is the graphical record of the cooking showing the change in temperature over time. Because this is the low end unit the Blu-tooth range is limited. It's best to keep you app device within range. The app will notify you when to remove the food with a very loud and persistent sound.
