Yea, i was really PO'd when I got it after all the recommendations because in temps below 100 it was off anywhere between 5-10 degrees F. I almost returned it when I thought I should try it in hot (since thats what we bought it for right?).
So I tried it in boiling water and both were spot on at 211. Preheated my gas oven to 250, both were spot on at 249 & 248. Also did the test at 325 & it was right on.
So I compared it to a industrial high end air thermometer thats accurate to like 3/10th of a degree (borrowed it from my chem lab at school haha) and the Maverick didn't match the Lab unit until it hit 92 degrees F & stayed on par with the lab unit within 2-4 degrees all the way up to 350 when I stopped. So I feel comfortable using it over 100 F. So it will do for BBQ and smoking and what not but wouldn't use it for my fridge haha
