I’m pretty impressed with this thermometer. The packaging isn’t that impressive so it wouldn’t make a good presentation for a gift but the actual product is excellent and very accurate! I tested this thermometer against another thermometer I had in the house already and they both had the same reading so I was happy about that! It’s very easy to use which keeps it simple and it cleans up easy too. I also like that it’s priced at a good price point so it’s not expensive and it has a helpful chart on the front of it with the proper temperature for different types of meats. Mine was mailed to me as a sample so I could try it and post my opinion. Oh, and another thing I’d like to point out is the bright color, it makes it a lot easier to spot it in your kitchen drawer. I know that’s a minor detail but I thought I’d point it out. If your interested in this product you can find it on sale over HERE and the best part is that it’s currently marked down to $14.95 from $18.95.
