I was a little nervous about this because I've never used a digital probe thermometer before, but I was making a pork roast for a dinner party and needed an accurate temperature. This is brilliant! It was very easy to use, easy to adjust the preset temperatures and totally reliable. My roast was beautiful. I gave my dad the leftovers and he's still raving about it...just because it wasn't overcooked.
Oh, also, this has an off switch. All the others I saw wanted you to take the batteries out when not in use. Ridiculous.
