Details

This is one of the nicer digital thermometers we have used recently. It has a range of -40° to 350°F (-40° to 175°C). The stainless steel stem features Quick Tip technology, which means that this thermometer reads the correct temperature within 8 seconds or less. It is waterproof, which makes it ideal for brewing applications. This thermometer is incredibly easy to calibrate — just place the probe in at least 1 inch of crushed ice and water and press the "Calibrate" button for two seconds. The ProAccurate Digital Thermometer also has a min/max function, and shuts off after 10 minutes of non-use. It is warrenteed by the manufacturer for five years.

quick read Review by Hunter

not sure it is the most accurate thermo out there, but it sure does give you a fairly close temp very quickly. Very helpful at least when deciding if its safe to let your yeast go swimming (Posted on 3/21/14)
Works Like a charm Review by LabBrewers

I have used this thermometer for over a year in over a dozen brews and my girlfriend also steals it for cooking too! Definitely worth the money (Posted on 2/4/14)
very accurate Review by Steven
Rating
I have neen using a lab grade glass / mercury thermometer. Knowing that eventually it would break, I bought this thermometer. I lile that the readout is not on the side, but facing the user. And the accuracy is good - matches what the lab thermometer says. Very satisfied. (Posted on 10/21/13)
Great thermometer Review by matthew

I really wanted a digital thermometer and decided to go with this one. Works great. Compared it with other non digital therms I own and its spot on and reads temps quickly. Worth the buy if your looking for a simple digital thermometer. (Posted on 10/7/13)

Good Thermometer Review by Reuben
Rating
I do not know how to edit my other review so I will just write another one. I had a problem with my thermometer malfunctioning after just a couple brews. I was quickly given a replacement and I believe I have found what kills these thermometers. They may be water proof but I noticed steam could get inside the display so I wrapped a plastic bag and some twist ties around the probe and I have not had any steam, or display errors, inside of this thermometer.

Mine is excellent Review by Peter
Rating
I've had this thermometer for several years and I treat it poorly at best. Boggled by all the negatives here but maybe they changed the manufacturing for the worse...anyway it gets knocked around, completely submerged, left on the surface of the stove after the burner's been on, you name it. It still works better than any thermometer I've ever used. From what I've experienced, it's the fastest, most accurate thermometer under the $100 mark. If I go to a friend's place to brew, I bring this along because their thermometers just suck in comparison. (Posted on 12/5/12)
It increased my efficiency Review by Frontowardenemy
Rating
switched to all grain about 5 brew sessions ago and had been struggling with efficiency, i.e. inaccurate probe thermometers etc. Ordered this one, calibrated it per instructions and my efficiency went from 68% to 85%, needless to say I figured out where my process issue was. As for it's durability we shall see. (Posted on 11/25/12)
Quit working on my third use Review by Reuben
Rating
I used this thermometer for a total of two brews with great results and very fast readout. I went to grab it for my third brew and when I pulled it out the display was already on. After seeing this I attempted to turn it off and nothing happened. None of the buttons work on it and the only thing that turns it off is the removal of the battery. I will attempt to get it warrantied because it says 5 year limited on it so we will see how the return goes. As a note this was never submerged or dropped in any water. (Posted on 9/26/12)
5 years and still running Review by Tom Bombadil
Rating
Lot of negative feedback on this item it seems, which is surprising as mine has survived 5 years of frequent use including brewing 40+ brews, accidentally dropping it in the pot at a full boil, and two moves across country. The thing has been running like a champ (knock on wood!) and is still on the original battery. I now work in the field of metering equipment (for energy efficiency...not cooking thermometers) and this little thing has had a longer and more accurate lifespan than several of my $2000 power meters. I must have just got lucky I guess. Hydrometers...now that's another story.... (Posted on 7/5/12)
inconsistent quality Review by Van

My first one lasted me several years and worked fine. I bought a second one recently and it is total junk. The screen was so dark I couldn't read it and then it died. (Posted on 5/14/12)

Broke on First Brew Review by Sam
Rating
Used this temp gauge once broke on first brew. I thought it was waterproof so I let it sit in my sanitizer until I needed it. Worked fine for like 2 readings then stopped displaying anything. Guess I will have to buy one that isn't digital. (Posted on 1/29/12)
Works like a champ Review by Indybuell
Rating
6 months+, and about 10 brews, so far it works great. I keep it in the protective casing hung from my shirt. When I need it, I spray some star san on it, and then use it. I haven't had any issues, and would recommend to anyone. (Posted on 11/3/11)
Limited Lifespan Review by Renfield
Despite being careful not to immerse more than just the probe and generally treating it like a delicate instrument the thermometer has died after just under 3 years. While not expensive it's still discouraging that it didn't even last the length of its warranty. (Posted on 10/10/11)
Got three brews out of it. Review by Rick
Worked like a charm, although a bit tricky to calibrate (need a third hand).

It fizzled out after my third brew. We never kept it submerged in anything, but had been know to quickly dip in Star San. At some point, it must have gotten wet, cause the screen hazed over (from the inside) and it drained the battery in 24 hours. Bought a new battery, and if you push hard on the LCD protector, you can somewhat make out the temp.

I'm debating on buying another one, or picking up a thermocouple. (Posted on 10/4/11)
Broke by it's third brew Review by Renee
Rating
I used this twice before and didn't notice anything strange. My last brew I wanted to pitch at 65 F, but ended up cooling down to 54 F before I checked the temperature with another thermometer. It was telling me my wort was 10 degrees warmer than it actually was. (Posted on 8/30/11)
Worked Great for 3-4 Years Review by Ben
Rating
Mine just broke this past weekend, but it worked well for 3-4 years. It survived many drops to the ground, a couple accidental drops into the mash (quickly rinsed & dried), 3-4 years of general brewing wear & tear, 3 years of cooking, 3 years of baking.... We used this all the time. My beer wins awards; I've never had any issues with this thermometer. (Posted on 8/8/11)
Inaccurate and not functioning correctly Review by Gruneun
Rating
The temperature is off by nearly 10 degrees (F) after being used for less than six months. The recalibrate feature is not working, despite following the instructions in the manual, word-for-word, and will display only the "Err" message. I guess I will be seeing how the manufacturer treats this warranty claim. (Posted on 7/26/11)
Garbage-Won't even turn on after 2nd use Review by ShermanTank
Rating
This is the third digital thermometer I've bought for home brewing and once again, complete disappointment. I used this twice and took care to not to get it wet. After the second time, it stopped working. I bought it from NB but didn't keep my receipt (never do). Looks like I'm SOL again and still without a reliable digital thermometer. (Posted on 6/29/11)

Good until broke Review by Benjamin
Rating
It was very accurate (tested), until I noticed heavy pectin flavors in my beer. Brewed three beers in one weekend and all were ruined by this.

Tested it again with a lab thermometer (a real one) and it was about 5 to 6 degrees F off. Could be improper handling on my part, but I was really careful with this one.

2 pints because it was good for a while. (Posted on 1/30/11)
Works well - but beware of full submersion Review by Will
I really enjoyed this thermometer, but it broke after letting it soak in star san as my wort cooled. The guys at NB are shipping a replacement at no cost, but as a warning I wouldn't let this just soak in your sanitizing bucket. I'm planning to just fill a 12oz bottle with star san so I can just drop the probe portion in and leave the electronic housing dry. (Posted on 1/20/11)
So far so good Review by MoRdAnTlY [Mr. Wolf '91 - '10]
Been using this unit since the beginning of the year when I switched to ag and needed to monitor my mash temps. Has been a good performer thus far, including the occasional use in the kitchen as well. It's cheap enough that the ultimate care doesn't need to be taken as with a K-thermocouple meter.

It would be nice if it was a little longer but other than that it does it's job well. I takes fast readings and is very accurate. (Posted on 8/18/10)
Works Great Review by Dane
Rating
After going through two cheap digitals from WallyWorld I bought this one and have been using it for over 9 months and it keeps on going. It's waterproof so dunking/rinsing it in sanitizer is no problem and it has survived several drops onto concrete. It is fast responding and accurate (has not lost it's calibration). (Posted on 4/8/10)
Ok Review by Paul
This thermometer does give an accurate reading, but my digital display is only readable if you press on the screen, which makes it had to make a reading with only one hand. May just be a default with my thermometer not sure. (Posted on 2/16/10)
