Anyone else having trouble with this probe? I'm on my second probe in a few months and it just crapped out on my second batch. They start to read too high.

To the companys credit, they sent me a replacement at no cost. I'm going to try it one more time before switching to something else.

Model DTTC-W.

I have been getting the wire wet. I just drop the probe in the bottom of either my hlt or bk and wait for my desire temp. The plug has never been wet though. Their literature never warns against that either.

The company is going to send me a second replacement probe for free. They advised me not to get the junction wet.

Sooooo, DONT GET THE JUNCTION WET!!

OK. Third probe just went bad.

Don't buy this pos.

I was very careful in keeping the junction dry and only placed the probe in the liquid for a short time.

So you stick this in your BK or HLT... Steam... You did get the junction wet.
