    It's as long as I hoped it would be. This will make it easier to use over hot surfaces such as the grill.


    I bought this unit primarily because it was longer than the one I currently had. I HOPED it would be faster than the one I already had, but it is way, WAY slower. My current "instant read" thermometer takes about 6 seconds to reach an accurate temperature. This unit TOOK 22 SECONDS to read the temperature. Yeah, 22 seconds.


    If you're looking to get this unit to read temperatures reasonably quickly, like for grilling, forget it. If you're getting it to maybe put in a slowly heating pot of something, then this is the unit for you.


    Need it for something slow? Get it. Need not to burn your fingers getting a quick temp reading on a steak on the grill? Pass.
