Ease of use
?/10

Good points

  • Reasonably accurate (readings just outside claimed accuracy).
  • Display is easy to read.
  • Clear instructions.

But

  • Battery is fiddly to remove and replace.

How we test

We tested accuracy by comparing readings with an accurate digital probe thermometer.

We also assessed how easy it was to turn each thermometer on and off, plus change the battery. We also checked the quality of instructions, display, and audible signals.
