I use one all the time. Not useful if there are vapors (i.e., boil). But they work fine for reading mash temps, etc. You'll find a million uses for it, and will probably walk around pointing it at everything for a while. (hint: cats love to chase the laser pointer).
Won't replace a normal thermometer, though, like all the posts above are saying.
Now there's some take delight in the carriages a rolling
and others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
but I take delight in the juice of the barley
and courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

Reason: chase, not "change"
