    Same problems here. This seemed spot on while I was testing all my equipment, but by the end of brew day it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 degrees off. No idea what’s fact and what’s fiction now concerning my brew notes, but I can say that I ended up with an O.G. of 1.066 instead of 1.088. That being said, I may use this as a warning indicator that I’m approaching my temp range or as timer, but I’ll never trust it in the driver’s seat again.

    i bought this and it was off by seven degrees, returned to amazon and got it replace, this new one varies in its error and is off by 3 – 7 degrees. this thermometer is definitely not worth the money

    I also own this and used it as my main thermometer and timer until purchasing the commercial taylor that I have recommended on this blog.

    I wonder if this may be a unit specific issue as it has worked great for me. I have checked it at boiling temps (and it was accurate) when calibrating a blichmann thermometer.

    I would contact the manufacturer or the retail store if it is 12 degrees off.

    I have taken care not to submerge the temp probe beyond the top of the metal. It seems like I read Amazon reviews before purchasing that recommended this.

    Are there better thermometers out there… definitely. But I do think this is a solid thermometer if you’re looking for a timer and thermometer that is a reasonable price.

    I have one of these, and it’s very bad. I ended up with two overattenuated batches because the thermometer read 12 degrees high at mash temps. There is no way to cal, just “reset” which only got me within 6 degrees at mash temps. Not sure if mine is unique, but it is still pretty new and hadn’t been abused.
