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
After losing two refrigerators to compressor and evaporator failures in about as many years, I'm paranoid about monitoring the temps in my fridge and freezer. I keep one of these babies in the fridge compartment and another in the freezer. The display turns on when light strikes it, turns off in the dark -- a very nice battery-saving feature. I also like that there are no wires to deal with. The display is large and easy to read. My only suggestion for improvement is to add a more secure way to fasten the case. The included stand/hook works okay if you can hang or stand the monitor where you won't bump it, but I inevitably do. I want to add a dot of Velcro or a magnet to the back of the monitor so I can put it in a more out-of-the-way yet visible place.
