Nice but rather slow – Grill and BBQ Thermometer (-50C~300C) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
1) Built nice, well-looking, even surprising for a Chinese product :)
2) Generally, it's precise. When measured the human temperature, shows 36.0 vs 36.4 on a professional medical thermometer.
3) really stands high temperature (tried >200C).
Cons:
The only con is that it is really slow. It take several minutes to get not just exact value, but only an approximate value. In some kinds of work, you will not be able to spend such time for measurement!
Other:
Bottomline:
I noticed that the device works much better when the spike is at least 1/3 inside of some stuff that should be measured. When you just touch something with a tip of the spike, the thermometer is VERY slow to notice the difference. See my video for comparison with a multimeter for details.
