I purchased this from a store about 2 months ago. I didn't like it, but kept using it. It constantly reset itself to Celsius, even when in process of taking a temp. It seemed to be shorting out, kept shutting off in use. I opened it up and battery and surrounding metal was all rusted out. I tried replacing the battery with the one provided, but it still doesn't work. (website says: Made of rust and tarnish resistant stainless steel). Note: since it didn't say water proof, I did not submerge it when cleaning it after use. ;-)
Also, the edge of the plastic melted when using to take temp of a roast? It doesn't make sense to me that the materials used can't be used around something hot, since its intended use is to take a temp.
It´s been used both in the kitchen and at our BBQ`s; and it just works very well and very precise all over. Thank you!

I bought this thermometer at my local supermarket for $16.99, which was the most expensive one there. I thought if I paid a little more, I'd get a better thermometer.
Boy was I wrong.
First, it came with a battery installed and an extra battery. The installed battery was dead so I installed the spare one. While following the directions to change the battery, the cheap plastic latch broke so I had to tape the housing together. After I got the battery in, I turned it on. The F or C button is to switch from F to C readings. I had to hold the button to get the F reading. As soon as I let the button go, it switched to C.
Then, I tested it against my other thermometer in a pot of boiling water, which boils at 212 F. It was 20 degrees off and it hadn't even been used!!
Don't waste your money here. It's genuine junk!!!
