good price, accurate – K-Type Digital Industrial Thermometer with Sensor (-50-C ~ 1300-C) Reviews

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

Pros:
Temperature can be read in whole degrees or to the nearest tenth. Large display, and very little waiting time for a reading to occur. Seems to be accurate (has consistently read within +/-0.4 degrees of my body temp). Also has either C or F and max/min settings.
Cons:
The biggest drawback is that it will not measure beyond 392 F with current probe; to get advertised value requires the TP-K02 probe. Does use 6 "AAA" batteries.
Other:
Overall, for the price, a nice piece of equipment that appears to show fair accuracy. Just keep in mind that it will read up to a max of 392 F with the included probe.
Bottomline:
If you need something to measure the temp of liquids, air temp get it. The price is good. Just don't try to probe red hot stove burners and such as the probe wouldn't handle temps that high.
