This digital meter works great, has a needle like probe that can easily penetrate food, featured functions work as advertised, I will say it worked differently than I thought, when it says in the description about 3 seconds for a reading, I thought it was exactly that, I would touch something with the probe and it would show a number in 3 seconds, but instead it gradually climbs to the accurate temperature, and THAT takes about 3 seconds, but at least it starts climbing immediately when you probe something. What I like most about this specific product is that the back light comes on automatically with turning it on. They say it’s 100% waterproof, but I am not going to verify that. I like it. Happy with it.
