Unlock all of Consumer from just $12 a month
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.

Nice to hold
Unreliable temperature readings. It gave us readings ranging between 36.2 and 39.3 when we took our 1 year old daughter's temperature recently. 39.3 is seek urgent medical attention. 36.2 is there is no problem. We took her to the doctor just to be safe and the doctor used the Braun ThermoScan which we have since ordered. Disappointing Consumer has not reviewed it!
We returned it for a full refund the next day.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
