" I had an older IR thermometer that became very inconsistent, so I purchased this one on sale. So far it seems to be working well and is consistent. "

" My service club cook on two flat top grills and since we only do it twice a year we always struggle with finding the "sweet temperature" for cooking. This has become very handy for our non-profit fundraisers we zero in on the temp and focus on the people.
Easy to use and quick readout. "

Great Product

" I am the operation Manager for an office building with extremely picky tenants. Tenants that do not understand the HVAC temp. lag with our system. I can now show them the temp. of the air coming out of the ducts. This give them a warm fuzzy feeling and they leave me alone. It is also very accurate and durable. "

Excellant in the Kitchen

" This is a great little tool that can be used litterally everywhere. Around the house inside and out to detect energy loss. Plus it is great to dial in the true stove top temperature relative to the knobs and to unsure oil and other temps. I'd list all of the places I checked around the house before my wife started kidding me but the list would be too long. "

" I am a registered mechanical engineer and have used numerous products over the years. This has to be the best I've seen in quite a while. I am running a cooling survey on my condo and have used this thermometer day and night. It makes its simple to read surface and air temps any time of day without actually climbing ladders to reach registers, up into the attic on a hot day, etc. It seems to be quiet accurate. I would recommend it to anyone at this very affordable price. "
