Excellent value

Pros

It has a nice clear backlit screen that is easy to read in dim light so a great asset for an evening BBQ or in a dimly lit oven. The unit is easily cleaned and the cover ensures no risk of damage to the probe in storage. The buttons were small enough to be reasonably unobtrusive but very easy to use.

Cons

The buttons may need extra care to clean around if contaminated during use.

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.
