Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
* Very simple to operate
* Laser pointer - easy to center on the measured area
* Min/max/average - easy to measure temperature over a larger area
* Error estimate
* Dual temp. (C/F) display
* Good enough precision (tested against a known contact thermometer, error is within specs)
* Good grip
* Has a pouch for storage
Cons:
* No protecting glass over the sensor
* A little big for people with small hands
* Battery is 9V ... used up quite soon
* The colors are ... fugly. Why not give some thought to design?
* Manual is in Mandarin Chinese with simplifed characters only. PITA if you're used to traditional characters, useless if you aren't used to Chinese characters at all ;)
On the other hand, operation is really simple, so the manual isn't really necessary.
* The laser pointer is switched on/off with a separate button, which takes some getting used to
Other:
Excellent for the price.
Bottomline:
Recommended for kitchen use.
