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