Having brewed with a generous handful of cheap digital thermometers, we've learned to be very skeptical of performance claims of the manufacturers. Whenever the topic of "the best digital thermometer" comes up on the forums, the answer is always the "thermapen". It is a very nice thermometer for $94, but most people find it to be a luxury item. It's also not waterproof so you'll turn it into an expensive paperweight if you drop it into your boil kettle. Since the thermapen is so respected, we bought one to compare at least 10 competing budget options. Most of them were so bad, that we wrote them off immediately. The CDN units compared VERY favorably and we think you'll agree when you see the data points below.

1 of 5 False Accuracy Claim April 2, 2019
Reviewer: CW from Texas  
I’ve been using this thermometer for a handful of brews and it’s served just fine. The one star review is for the Brew Hardware claim that this is accurate to within 1/2 degree. According to the manufacturers website, and every other website that sells this, it is only accurate to within 2 degrees. The accuracy claims are false. Here I was thinking I had some super accurate thermometer. It’s the same story with the CDN long stem thermometer sold here too.

5 of 5 Great service March 11, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Ashburn, VA United States  
I ordered this thermometer as part of a list of things.  Was hoping to get one more part that was out of stock, added a note to the order, and sure enough Bobby got back to me and had found one.  This is my first stop when I need something.

3 of 5 Having problems getting it calibrated February 6, 2017
Reviewer: Rachel Spallina from Rochester, NY United States  
This thermometer seems to be off at least 1-2 degrees everytime I take a temp. I've calibrated it several times and it is still "off" from the other 2 thermometers I own. My conclusion is, either my other 2 thermometers are wrong or this one is.,..and I believe it's this one.

5 of 5 Works December 30, 2016
Reviewer: Michael from Marietta, GA United States  
This product does excactly what it supposed to do, for a good price. This is the second one I have purchased. They are for my 10 and 15 gallon cooler mash tuns. I'm using them with the weldless probe compression firings for coolers PCOMP3.
