OK so I got mine in the mail today and her it is. This is the full view right out the box

Now for the Next PIC                           Right out of the package.

                                                                 Features that it is able to do

                                                                 More good Info for ya.

                                                                 Serial Number.

                                                         Closed and in the OFF position.

                                                         Quarter in pic for showing the size

                                                         Temp probe open and this turns it on.

                                                        LED is good and clear very easy to read. Temp outside today.

                                                        Top view with the controls.

                                                        FLIR this is something that rings a bell. They make the see in the dark equipment that is used by professional law enforcement for seeing in the dark ( I think this is the same company )

                                                        Right out of a cup of boiling water YES correct.

So IMOP I think this is a good find no it is not a THERMA PEN but heck you can buy almost 3 of these for the price of one if you are on a budget this may help.

Let me know if I can answer any questions you may have about this product.

See ya in the smoke.

Those are both nice therms but I wouldnt pay that much myself, ya I'm cheap. I got one of these at a restaurant supply. It was about 20.00. You can get them at amazon.com. It's a Taylor 9878E.

I really think that if you have a good therm. is the key I know the one on my MES40 is off and it would not do good to use as to when to pull off you product.

I've had this one for several years, and it still reads 212 in boiling water.  $10

Sorry to be late to this thread.  I guess I just missed it. 

What is the response time on that therm?  Mine is a cheapie that runs 8 to 10 sec. Not bad most of the time, really.

If that one is in the area of the thermapen, that is a good buy if it holds up under use.

Good luck and good smoking.
