Used it a couple times.
I don't use it as often as my lab and dial thermos. The response time is slower so you can decide what practical use to assign this piece of hardware.

Good for brewing thermometer
I bought this as a replacement for another floating thermometer. Just have to be careful not to let it "dive" into the pot or the tip will shatter when it hits the bottom.

Broke immediately, just as others reviews said
I ignored other reviews that said this would break, I figured they must not know what they are doing. Wrong. This thing broke within an hour of the first brew day I used it. The bottom just burst off going from hot to cold water. (Not even extreme temps, my 148 degree mash to my sanitizer bucket). Luckily it shattered in the bucket and not my mash. Just don't buy this product, will not make it passed your first use, and will save you a potential ruined brew day and a major headache.

It's a thermometer. It floats.
It's a thermometer. It floats. Enough said.

Never again
Like some of the others have posted, mine broke in my brew pot. I had to pour out my first batch of Caribou Slobber.

Response from Northern Brewer
Sorry to hear about breakage and a ruined recipe. Not sure how far you got, we have a beer kit replacement guarantee so if you want to invoke that and brew up the batch you paid for, we could make that happen. Cheers!

Like others have mentioned, this thermometer is rather easy to break if you drop it a little hard into your BK. But that is fine, you can recover from that. What I cannot accept is the accuracy of this thing. I work for an independent accredited laboratory and brought home a lab grade mercury thermometer. The NB thermometer read 6-8 degrees off from the mercury thermometer which I trust.

try a dairy thermometer
My first brewing kit years ago -- not from Northern, but from some place on the west coast -- included a floating dairy thermometer. Used it for years until it broke. From the tenor of many of these comments, I think I'd search for another dairy thermometer.

Accurate,cheap, but broken
This thermometer is both cheap and accurate, but naturally it's made of glass and you will break it into your wort in front of all your brewing buddies and hear about it the next several brews.
