Earlier today I posted this appeal Last night my favorite high temperature Polder-type probe died on me. I thought I had a source for probes bookmarked but can't find it. Any help out there in Eggland?
and several eggers responded and I thank all of you.

OTOH there used to be sites that sold replacement probes for like $10 which were universal to all Polder-type thermometers. While I have the crappy Marverick ET-73 and several others all I need are the 24" universal probes. Any leads out there? Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

  • What you are looking for is Taylor Part #1470RP. If I remember correctly, these are replacement probes that cost about $5 each when you order 5 or more.

    Have a Polder 362 and I picked up a replacement probe from Fantes. These are 43" long. I've mostly used it for the oven, so the length is good, but next to your egg could end up being too much wire maybe. Here's their link:

    Good luck!

    appologies if this is a duplicate but i have not read responses to your original post... i bought these
    for $8 scroll to bottom of page
  • Just a note of caution: Do not mix probes from different mfg's. As an example, I cooked a pork butt along with a Maverick 73 (Mine works fine!) until 197° then just for kicks I plugged the temp. probe into my Polder and it read about 20° less. I checked all probs plus the dome thermometer in boiling water and were all within a couple of degrees.

    Thanks for that great tip. I never knew that.

    Since the probe fits both of mine (a Polder and an Oregon Scientific) I think I'll be checking 'em as you did next time. Thanks for the info!
