Pros: easy to use, auto shut off, great bang for the $
Cons: Probe could be more stout
All in all a great thermometer, has the ability to be re calibrated, fast and reliable. The only down side is the tip but it's a double edged sword! It starts from a smaller thinner tip to to a larger one, It's great as the hole left is smaller so less juice leaks, but I also bent one checking a pork shoulder after I hit the bone.
That being said it's easy to get use to. I would recommend and purchase again.
