Oregon Scientific Wireless Thermometer @ Lowes for $9.99

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
I've been using the Oregon Scientific AW131 wireless thermometer for about 4 months now. Performance has been pretty solid. Distance is pretty good (but not quite what they advertise on the box).

I bought it at Lowes for $39.99.

I just noticed it last night marked down to $9.99. It wasn't a clearance tag, but I'm not sure if thats a sale price. It's a great wireless thermometer for $9.99!!

Your mileage may very -- they still have it for $39 on the website. This was in the Jacksonville, FL Lowes.

Congrats Baker that's a good price. There are alot of relatively inexpensive thermometersout there - you jus have to look.

My Lowe's marked them down to $13.99... I picked up two. Would have gotten four if they went to $9.99. Maybe I'll keep watchin' 'em. They still have about 20 in stock. cool.gif

I just tested my thermometer -- put it in a pot of boiling water for a few minutes and it held at 212 exactly. I'm impressed. It does take a few minutes (probably 90 seconds this time) to get up to temp though -- not an instant read.

90 seconds to me is close enuff to a instant read.........you are doing fine

I checked mine, and it read 211°. close enough for me, and closer than my other two thermos.

chris.....i hope you meant 211 and not 111

Thanks for the heads up! My wife went to Lowe's and she brought back 3 of them at 9.99. She said there were still 4 left. I didnt feel like a pig but I wanted to send her back up there. icon_smile.gif

Click on the original posters link and you can enter your zip and see if there is one at your store or one nearby. Mine had them for 19.99 which is still a good deal.
