I bought this at Thanksgiving and it's still going strong. I make sure to hand wash it and never get the face wet. I don't use it daily but it's held up fine for my occasional use. It was a great price too so I definitely can't complain about that.
I just bought this today and used it right away. I placed this thermometer in a salmon steak fresh from the oven, the needle wouldn't budge. So I thought the food wasn't cooked. Put the salmon steaks back in the oven for a few more mins, placed the thermometer in the salmon steaks, still wouldn't budge. It's going back asap.
I rarely find something that is truly worthless, but this product qualifies.
It worked fine twice. The third time it showed a temperature of over 200 for a perfectly cooked chicken, more than 35 degree error.
How target can carry such terrible products as this is beyond me.
This started out as a decent thermeter, but in about 2 weeks it started losing signal, removed all other possible wifi rf interfence and still nothing... gave up and bought a cheap Maverick to get through the summer... Might be just mine, or something it dont like to share wireless with. YMMV
