    • STAFF EXPERT

      A:

      This item does have a auto shutoff that cannot be "turned off". The origin of this item is China. This is a good low cost thermocouple thermometer. I recommend looking at the reviews from other customers.

  • Q:

    The description of this product says it comes with a NIST-traceable certificate. Does this mean the product ships from the factory pre-calibrated? I'm looking for a unit that is pre-calibrated, so I can begin using right away, and then begin follow-up calibrations on an annual basis thereafter.
    Asked on 12/10/2012 by Danny from CA

    1 answer

    • STAFF EXPERT

      A:

      Yes, that is correct. This unit comes with a NIST traceable certificate from the factory. Additional NIST calibration is not needed at the time of order, but can be sent into us for calibration at the needed schedule afterward.

    Asked on 10/13/2012 by Junior from New Jersey

    1 answer

    • STAFF EXPERT

      The metal portion of the probe is waterproof - however it is not waterproof past that point.

  • Q:

    I wish to measure temperature of wort in beer making. Would this probe do the job?
    Asked on 9/17/2012 by Juan from Adelaide Australia

    1 answer

    • STAFF EXPERT

      A:

      Yes, this unit would be fine for brewing beer or other kitchen tasks. The unit is able to be field calibrated and will accept any type-K thermocouple with a mini-connector; making it easy to switch from monitoring mash temperatures to a thinner, wire-type immersion probe to check fermentation temperatures.

            • Home Brewing

            I used this to brew my own beer at home. It works great, but I did see that the probe might not be long enough for this so I also purchased a longer probe 93756-20 which fits perfectly. Its a great price and does its job. It would be nice just to purchase the workhorse without probes, but still very happy with it!

              Use to measure refrigerant lines and environmental temps. Worked with Cole-Parmer products when I worked in aerospace many years ago. They are very well priced for what you get. I don't believe you can do better.

                    I purchased two Workhorse thermometers and in a short time and with very limited use both have stopped working. The connector plugging into the front of the unit also makes it awkward to use.

                      Using this in a homebrewing setting. It seems to be accurate and simple to use. It would be more user friendly if it had a longer probe and longer cord. As it is now you have to hold the unit close to the area you're measuring which is inconvenient in hot liquid environments. Response time is not rapid but that's also the case with most digital thermometers. It does the job but I think I prefer the following digital thermometer for homebrewing: [@]
