Damn that's a long link....

 

This is for the Maverick 732. They have a 733 model also, which I think he replaceable probes, but I didn't see it on their list. I've got this one and most on this forum use some version of the Maverick.

Lowe's did have the Master Forge brand of digital read out that check out good with ice water 32 degrees and boiling water 212 degrees and were fairly priced. Hard to beat the Maverick for a little more $.

It sure is :)

You can usually trim most of the querystring off those links. Most of that stuff just relates to who you are, where you linked from, etc..

Water boils at different temps depending on your elevation. You can find out your elevation then google boiling water at so&so ele.

The Thermaworks website has a nice Boiling Point Calculator on their Software page.
