Just received my new Maverick. Should I trust it to be accurate to within 1 degree as they advertise or should I check it out? And if so, whats the best way?

    I assume you just put it in a pot of water and bring it up to a boil???

    Under the "Cookbook" heading above is a "Boiling Point Calculator", that will allow you to zero in using both your local altitude and the current weather conditions. Very handy!
    Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.

    I got mine 2 days ago and checked both probes in boiling water. They both read 212, but at my altitude they should have read 211. I was fairly impressed. Close enough for jazz. ;)
