1. Improved mounting clip: Most cheap thermometers fall off the rack with the slightes nudge and whenever I slide the rack in or out. This one clips on more securely.
2. Better positioning: It can sit securely atop a rack, tilted back for easier viewing.
1. Hard to read: Big dial but small numbers.
2. Expensive: Double to triple the price of the economy models.
3. Not fully oven-proof: The advertising boasts a temperature range up to 600 degrees, but a prominent "WARNING" on the package recommends "removing the thermometer" if the oven is used above 440 degrees to avoid cosmetic damage.
4. No metric scale: Fahrenheit only.
1. Speed: In an oven pre-heated until another thermometer read 425 degrees, this one took about 12 minutes to go from room temperature to a stable reading of 425.
2. Accuracy: I don't know how accurate it is, but at least it's consistent with my old thermometer. After it reached 425 degrees, this model's reading matched the 425-degree reading on the old thermometer almost exactly.
I have no reason to doubt its accuracy. (If I had another reliable way of telling the temperature in my oven, I wouldn't have bought this one.)
But I feel that if you have to take the oven thermometer out of the oven to read it, it's not easy to read. Of course you can't read it through the oven door, but even with the oven open, when you bend down to peer at it, various shadows make it pretty much impossible to read and therefore useless. The temperatures I'm usually looking for (300-400F) are in the most shadowed part. I'm going to have to buy another oven thermometer.
Probably if you had an oven that was up at eye level, this thermometer would be fine, but if your oven is under your stove, you may want to find something else.
My only problem is that I have yet to figure out a way to put the thermometer in there and keep it out of the way and yet still be able to read the face. I think I just need to keep playing with this to find something that works for me. I cook daily and often use both racks, so I am probably in a different place than most people.
