Pros

See below.

Cons

I haven’t used this product but found these recent reviews

https://www.productreview.com.au/p/matador-smart-meat-thermometer.html

They are based on Bluetooth connectivity and range which isn’t included here but would affect the recommendation I would think.

I’m keen to purchase but am a little dubious now.

Recommend it?

Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
