Warning regarding ThermoWorks products at Amazon, eBay and other sites More info
The lowest internet prices for ThermoWorks products are available at thermoworks.com and through special offers received by subscribers to ThermoWorks emails.
Amazon, eBay, walmart.com, sears.com and their sellers are NOT Authorized Dealers. There are unscrupulous sellers at those sites who have purchased ThermoWorks products at retail prices and are then re-selling them at significantly elevated prices, sometimes 2 to 4 times the Authorized List Price. After receiving numerous complaints from customers who were victimized by those listings, we felt it was important to do what we could to warn unsuspecting consumers.
Furthermore, we have received a growing number of complaints that such sellers are offering counterfeit, copycat, stolen units, and "Open-Box" units as authentic NEW ThermoWorks products. Thus, from January 1st of 2016, technical support and warranty coverage are only available on ThermoWorks products that are purchased direct from ThermoWorks or from ThermoWorks' Authorized Dealers. In this way we know the consumer is fully protected and we can protect our reputation for treating customers fairly. Extended Info
I liked my IR Gun enough I bought a couple for my best friends for Father's Day. It is a great tool for cooking on the gas grill where you want to get it really hot to clean -- but has it cooled down enough to throw the chicken wings on? Easy, and you can even check the temp of the diffusing plates beneath the grill top. Also good for a cast iron skillet when cooking steaks inside. When it was $100 I never thought of buying it; now it seems like it has saved me money with proper cooking temperature.
I bought this for my kamado grill so I could keep accurate records of my temps. It is doing a great job of telling me when my pizza stone or grillgrates are at the right temp. Plus, it is fun to check other things. Wow my hairless cats are hot!
This is making my grilling better. I highly recommend it!
More useful to the cook than many of the other similarly prices units.
I replaced am non-contact IR device I had been using for years. I like the smaller measuring area the IR-GUN-S has, but have one comment. This unit waits about a second before displaying the first reading. The one I retired displayed a measurement as soon as I pulled the trigger. Given its other features, I know I will get over the measurement delay.
Purchased this tool as I found it on sale and was interested in reviewing the temperature differentials of our attic ceilings versus our pitched ceiling areas. Very informative as to the varying temperatures throughout the house.
