I have this same model and it's off by 5*F @ 150*F when measured against my calibration themometer. It's pretty accurate around 175*F and 70*F.Bruscar said:Just picked up the Taylor at Tarjay
Then got some J-B Weld
Put a little to coat where the wire enters the probe. I'm figuring that the wire coating itself is fine as it can be used in ovens. It's just the connection to the probe that's not waterproof. So, with a bit of the J-B Weld covering it, it should make it waterproof for brewing and, since it can stand 600 degrees, good for my BBQ'in. We'll see. I'll keep you posted.
Are oyu guys that have these still happy with them?SuperiorBrew said:I have 2 of these and they are great. VWR usually has 10-15% off sales almost weekly
Thermometers are ideal for round-the-clock monitoring of semi-solids, air/gas, or liquids in incubators, refrigerators, freezers, water baths, and outdoor tanks. Useful in wet lab/plant areas and outdoors.
Thermometers may be placed anywhere. Easy-to-view 6.4mm (1/4") high LCD digits can be read at a glance. LCD operates in environments above freezing. Probe with stainless steel sensor performs accurately when under water. Records highest and lowest temperature readings over any time period. Reading updates every second.
Housing is waterproof and shockproof.
A serial numbered certificate is provided from an ISO 17025 calibration laboratory accredited by A2LA to indicate instrument traceability to standards provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
Temperature Range: 50 to 300°C (58 to 572°F)
Resolution: 0.1° from 19.9 to 199.9°, 1° elsewhere
Unit: 4.4dia. x 1.3D cm (13/4 x 1/2")

Ordering Information: Thermometers are supplied with probe with 3m (10') cable, magnet to attach thermometer to metal, suction cups and Velcro® fastener to mount thermometer on any surface, and 1.5V silver-oxide battery for one year of continuous always on monitoring.
I am. I wish the wire was a little more heatproof. I ruined one already (I think, it might just be the battery) because I direct fire my mashes, and I guess I wasn't paying enough attention one time, and the wire casing melted a little bit. Since then, it's not been working correctly. I need to replace the battery and see if that helps. In the meantime, I bought another one. I'm wondering if there's any way to sheath the wire in something a little more heat resistant, though...Dude said:Are oyu guys that have these still happy with them?
