Rated 1 out of 5Â by Sunshine1304 Just Stopped Working
Looking at the reviews I see that I am not alone in my disappointment in this thermometer. I used it only occasionally, but it too stopped providing a temperature read out. Selecting the meat and temperature work fine, but for the temperature read out I only get LLL. Of course this is the most important feature. Never used the timer.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by SadieOnTheSide Perfect turkey!!! I love this thermometer!
This is the first meat thermometer I've ever owned that actually works. I've had some bad experiences so it was hard to trust. I put the probe in my Butterball turkey......shut the oven door and hoped for the best. When the temp said 165 an hour earlier than the cooking bag directions, I was a bit nervous. However, I'm glad I trusted the thermometer. This turkey was perfection!!!! Had I cooked it the additional hour, I would have been serving turkey jerky. :) I love that the cord is so thin you can close the oven door on it. I plan to use this in the BBQ, too! Love, love, love it! Big display.....accurate.....low price. Yay!!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Danz OK, but poor viewing angle and stand
Probe seems like better insulating tubing than other thermometers I've used. But, the LCD viewing angle is very limited - If you look from too high an angle, or to low, the display can not be seen. Example if you look straight on, its good, but anything below "straight on" and the ON digits start fading. If you look from a top angle, anything greater than 30 degrees causes ALL the digits (on and off digits) to be on. If you use the built in stand, you can not see the display because of the viewing angle issue. Who at Kohls checks these items out before giving the OK to sell them?
Rated 4 out of 5Â by LDawn Works great but probe needs to be replaced
Bought this for my father-in-law for Christmas and he loved it. But the probe needs to be replaced but of course no one sells replacement probes for it. The part of the probe that is broken is where the metal and wire meets. And by the sounds of everybody's reviews, they are having the same problem. The reading he was getting was L L L , I've done everything possible but it doesn't work. Maybe they should start carrying replacement probes in the stores!! Now I have to buy a whole new thermometer.
