It also came with a mysterious free bag of jelly beans, for some reason. Yes, I ate them. I like to live dangerously.

Haha, yeah I got a little bag of jelly beans too. I thought it was nice.

Also, after using it just the once, I can see how a readout at the back end would be a tad bit more useful than the sideways one I bought. Also, a backlight would be nice.

I prefer the corded Polder's TBH - I can set a temp alarm for my hot liquor tank, I can have the probe in my covered mashtun without removing the lid, and it's easier to get my chiller dialed in with it than a hand-held...
