ThermoPro Intro Post! - Page 2

post #21 of 80

Went to iTronics website and did a live chat with Reed, and asked about the warranty discrepancy.  He assured me that the probes are warranted for life, and they are updating their website to reflect that.  He also stated that there are other products that they sell which carry a 1-year warranty, and that the ThermoPro probes were not limited to a year.

 

EDIT:  Apologies for the duplicate, as I was typing this up as Dillon was responding.

Sorry for the late response! Getting a lot of questions about the probes.

 

@TX Smoker: To be clear, you have a lifetime warranty from anywhere you order (Our website, Amazon, Walmart) on the probes, and a 1 year warranty on technical issues that may arise with the unit itself. We've got your back!

 

@SmokinAl: The probes are waterproof, but the steel mesh wire is not, so when you clean these, we recommend a damp sponge or towel.

 

If you have any questions feel free to ask, I will try to respond faster! To clarify one more thing, the 20 % discount is only through our website.

So back to my original question, if they fail because of water damage are they still under warranty?

Yes, they would be.

Sorry if I missed it but is there a code we should use when order for the discount?

Thanks for your prompt responses, Dillon, and clarifying the warranty discrepancies.  Good to know that iTronics stands behind their customers and products, good to know I'm dealing with a reputable electronic company who's been around for years, and also reaffirms my buying decision.  As earlier stated, the best warranty is the one that doesn't have to be used, but glad to know that it's at the ready.  Thanks again.

I need to get the wife one of these for use with her kitchen oven.

She will love you for it!  Once I convinced my bride to cook to temp and not time, she hasn't looked back!  She now gets mad if one of my instant reads isn't hanging on the frig!

Well that's definitely good to know!

 

It sounds like you have a very solid product.

I'm surprised she hasn't bought herself one. More than a few times I've used the meat probe on my Cyber Q to roast things in the oven. She knows the results are great and basically fool proof, but she still doesn't have one. I guess since we're getting a nice discount I should just pull the trigger. :smile:

My wife was the same way... reluctant at first ... It's hard to tell them that everything they cook is over cooked... especially in the crock pot (still working on that one) ... just about every night now she tells me to get your thermometer.. guess I just need to get her one for herself ...

I picked up a couple of ThermoPops when they were on sale, Gave one to Judy & she uses it all the time.

They are even good for making bread. They are just as accurate as a Thermapen, but maybe a second slower. 

Also about 1/4 of the price.

I have the Dot model and use it almost daily in the kitchen. I love how simple it is to use.

I've been using my TP-20 since January, I've probably done about 15ish smokes with it. First thing impressions on the unit, toss out the super cheap crap batteries that come with it. I wish manufactures wouldn't ship items with those crazy super cheap Chinese knock off batteries. I'd rather get a unit that came with no batteries, I've had really bad experiences in the past with those cheap knock off batteries. Other than that The unit was very nicely packaged, and super easy to set up. I had no issues pairing the units, overall fit and finish of the unit is very nice. As far as range goes, I've gone up to about 60 feet with zero issues. My neighbor is A master Ford mechanic, he has a fancy thousand dollar digital heat probe, so we did extensive testing on temperature accuracy. Overall between the temperature ranges of 175 to 250 it was very accurate. The biggest discrepancy we got was at 175 and it was off by 2°, other than that it was exactly right or off by 1°. Down between 75 and 100° the unit was off by as much as 10°, we repeated the testing five times and came up with the same results. When we tried testing 350 we started getting a little more variation then the 0 to 1°. Once we hit 400° it started being off by as much as 5 to 10° again. Which really doesn't bother me because all the smoking I do is usually between 175 and 250 , overall this is what I believe it to be a very nice unit, we also use the voltmeter to check the batteries on it the other day and the batteries have barely lost any power after approximately 15 uses and two months time.

I just ordered and received the TP08 this week. Tested it in boiling water and ice water and it was pretty accurate. Only off by 1 degree in my unit. Haven't had a chance to test it on a cook yet, but I expect it'll be just fine. I'll report back once I've tested it in my Apollo.

Just realized that the Thermapen, Thermopop, and Dot are all made by Thermoworks, which is a different company from Thermopro, which is being promoted in this thread. My mistake.

Thx, for the info Dillon, and the discount, I just ordered the 20 and a couple instant reads for home, Will be a busy spring.

I just ordered the TP-20 from Amazon. Arrives today. I read the reviews on both ThermoPro and Maverick and thought based on reviews, I would go with the TP-20.

Will post my experiences.

Hello,

 

Just to restate, as somebody was asking, the code for 20 % through our website only was SMOKINGMEATFORUM.

 

@Dabigbozman Thank you for the honest review and we are looking at using a different brand of batteries, it has been a noted concern, so thank you for the info and I will pass on the feedback!

 

Hope you all had a great weekend, if you ever have any questions feel free to head to our website for live chat or call in!

 

Dillon

Just curious, why a 3 ft probe and a 6 ft probe ? I think I would prefer 2 6 ft probes. Seems most folks are going to have the probe inches away from each other in use. Just seems same length makes more sense and longer is better.
