I really like that there are guidelines for cooking different kinds of meat on the thermometer. It tells you how to cook beef well done through medium rare and the temperatures for cooking poultry and ground meat as well. Makes it easy when cooking so you don’t have to look up the temperatures while you’re cooking.
The thermometer is easy to store as well, which is great. It has a hole in the top so it can be placed on a hook and it is also magnetic. I have it on my fridge for easy access.
The claim of this being waterproof certainly holds up! I can be super clumsy sometimes and accidentally dropped it into a pot of boiling water on the stove while I was using it and it was totally fine. It was easy to clean after use as well.
The thermometer takes a 3V lithium battery and I really appreciate that not only does one already come inside the thermometer so I could use it right away, there is a second battery included as well! There is also an opener included to make it easy to open the battery case when the battery needs to be replaced. The user manual includes instructions on how to do this but it is super intuitive so you may not need the instructions.
Overall this is a very good product. It’s easy to use and if you do have any trouble, the instructions are easy to follow as they have both written instructions and pictures.
