I just saw Mardi's post about the 'Nu-Temp' wireless theremometer so I followed the link - the picture looked very familiar - I purchased one in the past and have subsequently committed it to the "TOYS THAT I SHOULDN'T HAVE BOUGHT" category. I got so tired of trying to figure it out and wondering if it was still working, I placed it in the big circular file (garbage can). Tim M also purchased one and may have different thoughts . What follows is froma post on my site...[p]>> BEGIN <<
Second time I used it (Mexican Meatloaf) I managed to blow the probe. I called the manufacturer and they were a real pleasure to deal with. I'm mailing the old one back and they are mailing me a replacement at no charge. In fact they were so friendly, I ordered 2 more at the same time.[p]01/16/2000 - I'm becoming a little disappointed in the wireless unit. I blew another probe this afternoon at a dome temperature of 325 degrees. [I had just received a message from Tim that he had also just blown his first probe. I know the dome temp on the BGE was right since I just calibrated and installed a new dome thermometer on Friday. I still have 2 probes left - I guess I'll only use the wireless on cooks of 300 degrees or less - when the 2 probes are gone, I'll place the unit in the "toy's that I shouldn't have bought" box. [p]04/09/2000 - I went to use my wireless unit and the battery was dead - I went to open the case to coordinate the units and a small plastic piece broke - I have now committed the wireless unit to the "Expensive but Useless Toys" category.
