Essential device Review by Colleen

Thermometer provides accurate and quick readings. Easy to calibrate. Don't know what I would do without it!! (Posted on 2/18/14)
Super accurate Review by Mike
Rating
I've had this thermometer for 3 months now. I just re-checked the calibration at it was dead-on perfect. The only complaint would be the response time, takes about 20 seconds for it to stabilize. Not a deal breaker, highly recommend. (Posted on 1/29/14)

Solid product Review by Bradley

Tested against other thermometers I have and reads dead accurate. It's not the fastest read, but accuracy is more important than celerity.

Nothing fancy, just a good, solid all around thermometer. Highest read setting is pretty darn useful. (Posted on 1/9/14)
Works OK, slow response time Review by Jeremy
Rating
Seems accurate enough. Be sure to calibrate like they say with ice slurry, not just ice cubes and water. The advertised response time of 1.5 seconds is not true, it's more like 10 seconds before it stabilizes. For the price it's fine. (Posted on 1/7/14)
great item!! Review by Joe
Rating
I just used this thermometer yesterday and I love it. Temp reading is quick and accurate. I prefer it over the glass thermometer that I had been using. I figured that I would go with this digital thermometer cause of the great reviews, and because I did not want to keep buying glass thermometers that seem to break so easily. (Posted on 1/2/14)
Works well for me Review by Michael
Rating
Easy to use right out of the box, and hold on to your socks folks, it comes with an EXTRA battery! Who does that?

Three small reason why I gave it only 4 out of 5 stars: It could be faster. Would be nice if there was an easy way to clip it onto the side of my kettle. It also could be longer, but that might make it harder to store when not in use. (Posted on 12/31/13)

Works well. Very happy with the accuracy and response time. (Posted on 12/17/13)
ok, by other tho! Review by Hunter
Rating
Its alright, doesn't seem the most accurate and kind of slow at making readings. 1.5 second response time? it jumps around a lot up and down and i have to wait 20 seconds or more usually.

As I now noticed def keep the screen away from extreme heat as I never read that and my is hard to read now.

I'm getting a therma pen next, they are higher quality (cost more) but actually have a 3 second read time and more accurate.

Your losing heat in your mash having to wait so long to read the temp! (Posted on 12/10/13)

It's not the fastest thermometer that I've used but it's still faster than a good analog one and very accurate. The construction seems to be solid. (Posted on 11/29/13)
Handy thermometer Review by Trevor

Made the switch from the floating thermometer. I love this because I have shattered 4 of the glass dairy thermometers. Very handy and fast measurements. Glad I upgraded (Posted on 11/18/13)
A solid unit Review by Thomas
Rating
I have been using a glass/alcohol lab thermometer for ~ 5 years now and have recently upgraded to the digital. I used it today for the first time and am now wondering why I didn't buy this sooner. Not only is it accurate (0 degrees in ice and 212 at boil), it is linear and fast. I always suspected some nonlinearity in my alcohol thermometer (boiling at sea level was always 221 F), but I was never sure exactly how much. Now I know that my mash temp. is actually ~ 5 degrees above what my old thermometer read...

Also, this product is reviewed 26 times (including this one) with a 5 star rating. That should direct your fingers to the "add to cart" button.

My only complaint, and this is nit-picking, is that the stem could be a few inches longer to get down to the bottom of my mash tun... Oh well. I won't lose sleep (or beer) over it! (Posted on 11/17/13)

I just got this thermometer, and it's a huge improvement over the dial type. The readings are very fast and accurate. (Posted on 11/13/13)
Nice size, Easy to use Review by Colin
Rating
You know the thermometer is easy to use when any of your random friends who are over to help brew can pick it up first time, turn it on, and report back the tempature. It is easy to clean, store, and use. (Posted on 11/5/13)
Great thermometer, worth the price Review by Ed
Rating
I was a little hesitant to spend $18 on a thermometer when there are cheaper options, but after a few weeks with this thing I find it totally worth every penny. Very quick readings and easy to use. Also works great as a meat thermometer. (Posted on 10/27/13)

As a beginner brewer, I found this immediately and indispensable item. It's quick, easy, and reliable performance made it a necessity from the first reading. (Posted on 10/21/13)
Very good product for the price. Review by Cory
Rating
This burner exceeded my expectations. Boiled wort fast and was able to get a very vigorous boil going. Only downside is the black soot that is left on the bottom of my kettle. But overall for the price this is a great product. (Posted on 10/19/13)
Very handy Review by Steve

Only took one brew to break the glass thermometer that came with my starter kit. Ordered the KM14 based on recommendations at Home brew Talk. Easy to use and seems very solid. (Posted on 10/15/13)

Quick and easy Review by Wallace
Rating
After my 3yr old turned my glass therm included with the deluxe starter kit into a million pieces, I bought this in hope for a more robust product. A side benefit is it's quick and accurate (at least I believe so after comparing reading w/ frozen and boiling water).

Have used it 4 brews now and no issues and hoping to get a couple years of good use... we'll see how it goes. (Posted on 10/6/13)

Does what it should Review by Michael
Rating
Seems sturdy enough. Came with an extra battery. Initially thought it was DOA but battery is installed backward from manufacturer. (To save it from draining I guess). When tested in I've bath it was 1 degree high. Close enough for me and I could have calibrated it I guess. (Posted on 9/25/13)
Great thermometer for the price Review by David

Plenty fast, and works great for food too. The fact that you can calibrate it allows you to get it to be very accurate.

Waterproof is a big plus as well. (Posted on 9/16/13)

Great Thermometer Review by JAMES

I got this thermometer as I started doing partial mash brews. As it's so easy to calibrate and waterproof it has quickly become my favorite thermometer for all cooking needs. Not really instant, as it takes ~3 seconds to get accurate reading, but it is really accurate. Blows all the other probe thermometers I have (from cooking stores) out of the water.

Great Value Review by Phil

Ordered this after my glass one broke leaving little tiny black balls at the bottom of my pot. That will never happen again with this one. I am one of those people that compares prices, reviews, etc., before ordering. This seemed the best for the price overall. I am very happy with it. Long enough I don't steam my hand, accurate and the price was great. I recommend this, works great for me. (Posted on 7/12/13)
