This instant read thermometer is so great to have in the kitchen as well as outside by the grill. It is great for everything from making candy to getting bath water ready for small children or elderly adults. The auto on off is perfect for when you get in a hurry and forget to shut it off, it does it automatically. Great for having outside by the grill for those spring and summer meals. It is easy to use, super easy to set up and even easier to put away, with the collapsible probe. Makes it easy to store too.
