Nice and cheap little thermometer – Grill and BBQ Thermometer (-50C~300C) Reviews

Pros:
* Good quality probe, easily piercer meat, etc.
* The sensor is in the very tip of the probe.
* Stable reading in a few seconds
* Can use just about anywhere, -50 to 300C (-58 to 572F) range (note, I haven't tested it to such extreme, but meat on the BBQ and freezer worked fine.
* Nice size
* "Remembers" the last used type, Celsius or Fahrenheit.
* Easy to clean
* Comes in a practical storage tube
* Automatically shuts off after 15 minutes
Cons:
* Rubber buttons are a bit small but not really a big issue just need to press "On/Off" and "Hold" anyway. Never had a problem.
Other:
Uses one LR44 button battery (included), very easy to replace just unscrew the top.
I'm not sure if the display part is water-resistant but seeing that it's tightly contained between two O-rings and the rubber buttons it's very well possible.
Bottomline:
A great little cooking and everyday thermometer at a fantastic price (I paid about this price for a small *mechanical* cappuccino thermometer here!)
