if thats the same one walmart sells? i returned mine, it was reading ok then out of nowhere it was reading way high. maybe just a bad one but i dont like the delay it takes to get to actual temps i guess because of of being wireless
I got one of these on woot and it worked great until I washed it. I had this one in the UDS for a smoker temp ,it was run through a potatoe.Well the dried on potatoe junk was stuck pretty good so I thought a good soaking would do the trick...well it didn't ruined it.Now I get the instructions out "DO NOT SUBMERSE THE TEMP PROB" we my fault so I called Acu rite and wanted to buy a new probe,well the don't have them so she sent me a complete digital /wireless thermometer no charge.Thought I would share this with the group.Good service in my book.
I called 1.800.0565 and went through the phone menu and I believe they had me call 1.800.1252 .they are closed right now but try the first # and they will give you the option to get "ACU-Rite and I talked with a lady named Candie.Like they say "You don't ask You don't get"good luck
i contacted accurite and they not only sent a new probe, they sent a new unit plus another probe.
this one seems to be just as accurate as the first, and the enw design of the probe seems much better. instead of being covered with a typical plastic insulation, the probe wire has a tough, flexible insulation similar to braided radiator hoses.
2 of my accurite probes busted over the last few months and then my trusty maverick died on me too this past weekend. I came to this section to research thermos and read the above post so I said why not and called. They're sending me out 2 new units!! I'm so tired of spending $15+ for thermos that break so I'm glad I read this thread. The CSR mentioned she is sending me a unit that is designed for smoking, a new one they have.
