AcuRite Digital Cooking Thermometer with Probe and Pager
The AcuRite Digital Cooking Thermometer with Probe and Pager provides an instant readout of inner food temperatures during the cooking cycle. This commercial-quality, stainless-steel thermometer probe features a 3' cord that is heat resistant to 700°F and that reaches outside of your oven or grill, so you don't let heat escape while checking temperatures. A wireless, remote pager uses sound, light and vibration to alert you when a desired time or temperature is reached.

Base Unit Kept Turning OffI used the item once to smoke pork shoulders. I used the custom temp setting and it began registering the temp of the meat. However, after about 15 min. the remote flashed red and green, checked the base and it had turned off. I turned it back on but it said no probe. I pulled the probe out of the unit and plugged it back in. It worked again for a few minutes, said no probe and shut off. Apparently there is a defect in the probe connector on the probe or the base so I am returning for a new one.

2 Years and still going!I bought this about two years ago and have had really good luck with mine. I use the thermometer in the oven and on my wood barbeque pit at least four times a month. The probe itself is about 6" long and is on a cord/cable that is about 24" long. The feature I like most is the remote. It will alert you when you have one minute left of cooking time and when you have reached your desired temperature. The range of the remote is not great, but is good for about 30-50 feet. It has many options on it and is pretty simple to operate. Custom temperature is what i use most, but has pre-set temperatures for beef, poultry, etc.
Other reviewers have had the plastic battery compartment melt when the thermometer is placed on a hot pit. I never do that. I place mine in the coolest location I can find and have not had an issue. Battery life is good

same experience... worked great, onceused this on my smoker that was running at 300 degrees according to the 2 temp gauges that i have set up on the top and bottom. The plastic softened under the magnets and warped the battery door and the probe no longer reads after just one use. save your money.

JunkI used this one time in my green egg to smoke a boston butt, very low heat (225). instructions say it can handle up to 700 degrees. even with flare up, this would have been impossible. it did work until the meat was done but when I turned it on the second day I got a warning that the cord to the probe was no longer working. I wouldn't expect this out of a $29.95 thermostat. do yourself a favor and find another one.
