    This infrared thermometer is great for temping anything. I mostly use it for meats because I don't have to clean it after. It's really convenient.

    I loved using this infrared thermometer. It is so easy to use it, and it's really accurate. It turns off automatically after 15 seconds of not using it. Definitelly the best.

    This is the best infrared thermometer I ever owned

    This Taylor Infrared Thermometer is very accurate and is handy to check the temperature inside a cooler or holding cabinet quickly. This was the best price I could find online too!

    from The Orioles Club Posted on

    Great item! I had two guns before this one and it does the best job! I've been using it for 2 months and absolutely love it! It's lightweight and very comfortable in the hand, it's quite precise (I work with chocolate, so every degree matters!), it's easy to work with and very affordable! Highly recommend!

    Measuring the temperature of cold cocoa butter - 22.0

    A must for your operation. This the first time we have ever used one and it is great! I don't see how we ever did without it!

    from Russell Tallo, Sr. Posted on

    This is indeed a good one. It came with batteries and a pouch. It worked well from the very first use, just point and shoot.

    Purchased this thermometer to help with roasting coffee as temps need to be pretty precise. Haven't used it all too much yet, but so far so good!

    This infrared thermometer is top notch. I use it everyday to quickly check all my hot foods on display and it works like a dime. Battery life last long and it's easy to wipe off clean, if need be.

    Taylor 9523 Infrared Thermometer; -49 to +750 Degrees Fahrenheit arrived today and I was so happy to have it all you need to do is point it at your target click and you now have the tempreture !!!

    from PowerQuee Media Posted on

    Great infrared thermometer for the price. Perfect for gathering fast and efficient surface temps . Be careful not to use for cooler temps as the infrared will likely bounce off of stainless steel.

    from Ana's Cafe LLC Posted on

    This handheld works great. So much better than a stem thermometer. The price is like almost half of other digital thermometers we've looked at. Great item.

    from H & L on the Hudson Posted on

    Very nice

    Love love love this infared thermometer! It is so easy to use. Just point and shoot at whatever you are trying to temp and there you have it.

    Posted on

    This thing is a kitchen must-have. It can even be used for more than that. I checked the water temperature in my swimming pool with it... It' makes maintaining a certain temperature very easy. Especially when frying or using a griddle.

    Posted on

    When the health inspector comes and you pull out one of these, they just smile and think these folk got it together. Great value! Great price too!

    from It Takes Two LLC T/A Dino's Grotto Posted on

    This is an extremely handy tool for our kitchen. It makes temperature monitoring simple & convenient. We use this for monitoring fridge & freezer temperatures & soup holding temps.

    from Bada Bean Posted on

    I use this daily at home for my stovetop griddles. It has always been a trusty tool. Ans I don't see my self ever going without it.

    from Todd's Kitchen Posted on

    We like this thermometer. It is really handy to check the temperature of the fryer oil, grill and pizza oven to be sure they are all at the correct temperature. Our fryer was burning things and we found that it was running hotter than we thought. We have been able to reduce the temp and solved the problem.

    I use this thermometer to determine the temperature of an area for curing meats. It's also useful for finding out the temperature of sugar without making a mess

    The Taylor Infrared Thermometer is great! The infrared beam detects temperature accurately, quickly, and efficiently. This thermometer works great for cooking sugar and tempering chocolate.

    Wow this thing is invaluable! Works in about a second and you can hold in the trigger as you move it around and the temperature will adjust instantly. Great product!

    Very pleased after a month or so of daily use. With reasonable, common sense use and care this unit appears to be quite sturdy and is super responsive and fast to obtain readings. A clear winner for the price.

    I got this for my husband. He wasn't sure how to use it at first but the directions were very clear and he loves it

    Posted on

    The temperature display is clear and bright making it easy to quickly see the numbers. The range of the laser is quite impressive and the unit is lightweight and sits well in your hand.

    This thermometer was perfect foe what we needed. We have our ovens set at 550 and many infrared thermos weren't up to the job. Having the right temp is crucial to our process.

    from Sbarro Pizzeria Posted on

    This is great for temping flat pieces of meat and even court boullions! This will allow for exact temperatures when poaching delicate items like quail eggs!

    Posted on

    This tool is amazing in the kitchen!! Perfect for determining the temperature of poaching liquid or our tandoori oven. Its quick and easy. I love sniping pots across the kitchen!

    This item is flimsy at best. within days of purchasing the item and with normal wear & tear, the back cover for the batteries popped off and we used a rubberband to hold teh batteries in. otherwise works fine.

    from loveland chef Posted on

    The excellent price point of this infrared thermometer makes it our most popular one. We do not carry any other thermometers with a laser sight but if you are looking for an alternative, you might try looking at the Taylor 9305 Infrared Thermometer with Probe. This thermometer has a probe and infrared capabilities. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact customer service.

    Works excellently. I use this to check the deck temperature in my ovens on a daily basis. Also I use to check temps on caramel / candy creation, easier and cleaner than a floating thermometer. Note that in candy applications the surface temp is not always as hot as interior, so stir it up!

    from Mountain Oven, LLC Posted on

    This infared thermometer was a great addition to our kitchen. We can check all of our hot and cold food as well as our coolers and freezers in a matter of seconds. With its point and shoot funtion -all of our employees can use it with ease.

    from Stacks Market Posted on

    What a great way to temp food items! Easy to use, quick response time and eliminates the hassle of having to sanitize in between items! Good for checking heating temperatures of ovens too!!

    Posted on

    We use this to temp everything from steam table to sauces. I also use for checking refrigeration to make sure all is working and food is kept to proper temp.

    from colbys Posted on

    This thermometer is great. We use it for candy making and is accurate and you dont have to worry about holding the thermometer to the pot. The best is that you can use it for several batches at the same time.

    from SWEET CORNER Posted on

    The Taylor 9524 Infrared Thermometer with Laser Sight makes checking temperatures fast and easy for our cooks. It's the perfect size, lightweight and 100% accurate in only .5 seconds.

    from Branded Ber Deli Posted on

    This is a great all purpose surface temperature thermometer. If you don;t need internal readings, this is quick and convenient and because of its range, it can read from deep fryers and griddle to walk-in temps.
