To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We use this on our blackstone griddle and I loved the size. It’s large, easy to read, and the “sear” and “grill” wording is very helpful. Keeping it clean should of been a breeze but some moisture got into it early on and then it was no good. Bring on the fog and even outright water bubbling. I don’t think it’s sealed tight enough as we didn’t submerge it in water but I’m going to give it another buy before saying it’s a poor product.
This thermometer does read the temperature directly on the grill surface, but it appears to react very slowly to changes in temperature. The entire body of the thermometer has to heat or cool for changes to register on the dial, and that takes time. How much time? If I move it from the hot side to the cool (shut off) side of my gas grill it will take 10 minutes for the new, cooler temperature reading to stabilize. The delay factor means you don't really know what's going on in your grill if you change the size of the flame. Also, half of the numbers on the dial were painted in bright red, which faded to a very dull gold color after a few uses, making them hard to read. The black numbers are still fine.
Product works well for temp readings but I have found on my first use that its not well sealed against moisture which builds up on the inside. Good to use but needed some time in the oven after grilling to evaporate the moisture buildup.
