  • · High Heat Probe and Wire Withstands up to 700F (371C)· Digital LCD display shows elapsed cooking time, your choice of target temperature, and constant average actual temperature from 122F – 572F (50C – 300C)· Average temperature is updated every 10 seconds· Battery and probe included This new thermometer is a must for the gas grill. The Maverick DIGITAL BARBEQUE THERMOMETER lets you know the constant average temperature inside your barbeque throughout the cooking process. What’s more, it recalculates this average every 10 seconds, and compares it to the temperature target you have preset. It then alerts you if the temperature swings more than 15F (9C) above or below your target temperature. It updates this average every 10 seconds.The DIGITAL BARBEQUE THERMOMETER measures the temperature by using a probe sensor with grill rack clip and an insulated metal wire that passes between the grill-hood and leads back to the unit. Grill knobs or air vents don’t have very accurate temperature settings and when you open and close the hood the temperatures can vary up to 100 F (55C) from the temperature you think you set on the dial. Some grill hoods have analog thermometers but they are not at the grill surface, and they are not as accurate as digital. If you don’t know your temperature, barbeque results can be poor.Terrific for proper cooking of roasts and poultry, too. Also features 20-hour count-up or countdown timer. Detachable stand for countertop use, hanging bracket for wall, and has magnets on back for sticking to metal surfaces. Single AAA battery included.

    Pros - price, thick cable, magnet
    Cons - averaging feature
    I have no complaints.  I don't use the averaging feature.  I just leave it on actual temp.  Thick cable is resistant to heat to 700* and measures to 572*.   It boil tested to 212* at sea level.

    Pros - Price, features, accuracy, magnetic mount
    Cons - Not wireless, silicon "sleeve" falls apart, grill clip is awkward
    This has been a reliable workhorse in my arsenal.  The average temperature function/range alarm are useful, and the large LCD readout means I can see it from the living room.  There are a couple of anoyances, such as the little silicon sleeve around the temperature probe and the fact that the little grill mount sits awkwardly, at best, but it's solid and usable.  I'm upgrading to the ET-73 to be able to monitor things from my office (where I don't have clear line of sight), but I'm going to keep this around as a secondary readout for the other side of my cooking chamber.
