I have the basic $12 digital thermometer and am satisfied with it. However, we are having Christmas this weekend and all I asked for was a $30 wireless, which I am getting. Are they reliable or just so so for the money? I will get the gift receipt with it and could exchange it and trade up for a little more money. I dont know what all the goodies arethat I could get on a thermometer other than the wireless but dont want to have to have one I cant trust.
