    Did you check them both in boiling water? If so, I would go by DigiQ. I think its a thermocouple vs thermistor in the Maverick.

    A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with TWO watches is never sure.

    I would go with the DigiQ.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Boil water on the stove and put the probes in the boiling water. 212* F/100* C at sea level.
