Pros: Well made, sturdy, accurate
Cons: Little bulky not as convenient as a pocket thermometer
I own this same thermometer only in orange and have owned it for years. It is probably the best thermometer I have owned and the accuracy it excellent. Mine is mostly used for roasting meats and for making yogurt but I have also used it to test the water temp on my espresso machine. What I like about this thermometer is you can clean it after use and run it under water and not worry about ruining the electronics. You can also get a silicone jacket for it which I did and it offers even more protection. There is definitely a cost issue with the thermometer but you will have it for the rest of your life it is that durable. I have never regretting this purchase and I would recommend this to anyone.
