Pros: remote readings, large display, easy on batteries
Cons: sender does not like cold weather, Only a max temp alarm,
I have owned this for about a year now, I purchased it from Bed Bath and Beyond. It lets me monitor the temp of my smoke chamber form inside the house. When I used it during the winter, I had to put it inside a plastic coffee can wrapped in rags with "hot Hands" warmers in with it in order for the sender to transmit to the remote unit. I could read the temp on the sender unit, but it would not transmit when it was cold. I can use this around the house with no problems except for my basement, (I can use it down there but, I have to hold it up in the middle of the room to get a reading, it won't update next to the wall down there). I can set it by the bed at night and wake up periodiacally and check the temp of my smoker, without getting out of bed.
