I absolutely love this meat thermometer. It's great that it's digital and is made of a long and thin stainless steel point. It's very durable and the way it's made I don't worry about poke holes in my food. Includes 3V battery and comes with a plastic case for easy and clean storage. I just drop it in my cooking utensil drawer and it's right there when I need it. Gives me an accurate temperature reading and when I push the voice button I know when it's done. I love the backlight and auto shut off features. Can be used in right hand or left hand screen flips to show temperature when it's upside down. Now I can throw out my kitchen timer since I can now use my Digital Super Fast Meat Thermometer.
