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 keep one of these on my dresser and have owned it for a couple of years now. It's important to me that my house doesn't become too humid or the opposite. We cook a lot and sometimes in the cold months, the humidity will spike which causes windows to sweat and so on. If I see the humidity level go up past 50% I'll turn on the dehumidifier and if it gets too low I have a little humidifier I use. I asked my wife the other day if she ever looks at it and she said she does every time she walks into the room. It's addicting. It runs on a AA battery. I own three Thermoworks items (Thermopen and Chef Alarm) and love them all. Buy with confidence.
I love to make molded chocolates. I had a batch of chocolate I was tempering seize up because of the humidity, So, I treated myself to this Thermo Hygrometer. Now I check the humidity before tempering chocolate. It is so nice to know the room temperature and the humidity (especially here in Florida)
