    Thermometer read rubber accurate Great battery temperature easy price instant

    Only downfall to this thermometer is the sleeve can be loose and doesn't hold the thermometer properly. Otherwise, great thermometer to have for most applications in the kitchen.

    I like this newer model of the Taylor thermometer so much more! The rubber boot on it is great and makes it much easier to clean off. I also prefer this style of click button compared to the switch button.

    We have purchased many of the Taylor Classic Instant Read Pocket Thermometer. It has proven to be durable. The battery lasts for a while. Will buy again.

    This is a good thermometer for the price. It comes with a protective sleeve and an extra battery. You can take the temperature in either F or C.

    Using the Taylor thermometer to test the temp of my tri tip!

    I was pleased with the Taylor instant read pocket thermometer. I tucked the extra battery into the bottom of the rubber boot so I wouldn't lose it. It took about 60 seconds to read the temp of my smoked chicken.

    Posted on

    This instant read pocket thermometer is handy to have at the smoker. Took about one minute but that's instant enough for me.

    this thermometer is easy and quick to read, and comes with a protected cover. every employee in my business could easy learning to use it.

    from lancaster Tea Box cafe Posted on

    I like this thermometer, I really do but it's far from perfect. First off all, it's not instant read. It can take several seconds if you're reading something HOT. Second of all the thermometer separates from the storage sleeve easier than I would like to see. Thirdly the clip is not all that strong. So it might separate from your jacket pocket easier than what you might expect. With all that being said, it's not a bad little thermometer for the price.

    This is a good quality thermometer probe. It appears to display an accurate temperature but time will tell if it holds up. I wish the display was a little larger.

    Posted on

    Just what we were needing! I ordered several since they were at such a great price. Easy to use, and exactly what the health department requires. I recommend these!

    Bought two, one for son who grills quite a bit. I used mine for fried chicken the other day and it was great. It does take a while to read, but fine for price.

    from Home Posted on

    I've always like the taylor line of the thermometers I find Digital ones to be very accurate , which is good to keep the health inspector off your back..

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    My cooks are very pleased with this thermometer! It has very accurate readings and we have been able to get medium rare roast beef which everyone is happy about!

    from Banfield's AC Posted on

    I love this thermometer. The clip is nice to have because it can store away on my attire and I have quick access to it. The added rubber boot is nice in case it gets dropped and adds a layer of protection to the product as well. A+!

    Posted on

    This thermometer is accurate and the display is rapid. It is a good size and the rubber ring protects it in case it is dropped.

    from dr.grindstaff Posted on

    The Taylor Classic 5" Probe Thermometer is durable, easy to use and extremely affordable. The thermometer seems to read accurately and is the one our kitchen staff reaches for time and time again. The protective sleeve and the extra battery were an added bonus that you won't find with many other thermometers.

    from Sarah T Posted on

    Good value for the money: accurate, simple interface, auto shutoff, reads fairly quickly, rubber protective bumper, replaceable battery, and they give you an extra battery in the packaging. What's not to like?

    from The Paulin Slate & Copper Co. Posted on

    This thermometer is compact and efficient. The display is clear and the temperature reads quickly and spare battery is included in the package. The sheath makes for convenient deployment and storage and could easily fit in a pocket. Overall, this thermometer is a great value for the price point.

    A must have tool!! For my home cooking and for the school where I work. This thermometer has a nice long probe so I can get an accurate reading deep in the meat.

    from work Posted on

    We use this thermometer to test the temperature of our ice creams and sauces. It has never failed to provide a constant and accurate temperature.

    from Heavenly Hershey's Ice Cream Posted on

    This thermometer works fast and seems to be accurate. The extra battery and storage boot are nice extras that come in the package. Our cooks love them!

    Posted on

    This is a great little tool for anyone to have in the kitchen. It's very accurate, easy to read and I really like the on-off switch. It not only comes with a battery installed, so it's ready to use right out of the package, but it also comes with an extra battery. Great price too!

    from Baked Bliss by Laura Posted on

    Works as intended, and has an on off switch. Easy to read digital read out. Comparing it to other gauges it always checks out accurately.

    Posted on

    This is my go to thermometer. They are perfectly accurate and extremely durable. We use them multiple times a day for multiple applications - from ensuring our salads and dressings are being held at proper (cold) temperatures to finding the precise moment to take our meats out of the smoker (hot!), this little wonder does it all. They read quickly -- the thermometer reaches it's readable temp in half the time of a dial thermometer. Great buy.

    from Nickel's Pit BBQ Posted on

    I bought two of these for our family restaurant. We use them every day to check our fresh cooked meats, meatballs, and lasagna. There's never a question about temperature.

    from Giordano's Pizza House Posted on

    These work awesome! My customers love them. I've even taken a couple for at home. The rubber boot is also very helpful. I'm always dropping things.

    from Brew Monster Homebrew Supply Posted on

    Great value for money, I use this all the time with meat, poultry and bread. It gives an instant read as long as you insert it into the food BEFORE you turn it on (as with any other instant read thermometer). Even if you're used to cooking without one, this will give you some additional confidence and peace of mind.

    Posted on

    It comes in handy!!! It's takes even the temperature of the air!!!!! I Love this product and recomment it! The Price its a bargain.... So its what you are looking for, if you want a good thermometer.

    from Brother Núñez S.R.L Posted on

    The rubber boot over this instant read thermometer is definitely worth the added cost! It is so easy to drop and damage thermometers, but the rubber boot takes care of that. It also provides a really secure grip, when taking temps. Highly recommended.

    from Caribbean Grill Posted on

    Awesome value. This is a reliable, inexpensive quick read thermometer. We use these for employee temp checks without concern of having to replace an expensive digital thermometer. With the rubber cover, it holds up well to use.

    Posted on

    These thermometers are very durable, accurate and the rubber case (included) is great for keeping the product safe from moisture and additional heat in the kitchen. Very accurate and great for the price.

    Posted on

    I always end up break thermometers simply because I drop them and over time they break. This Thermometer will withstand the test of time! Great rubber boot feature will protect it from drops!!
