    Anybody use and/or own this model?











    It's obviously sold on Amazon, saw it on Sears and another site as well.





    Gets good reviews, but it's only on 3 reviews total, although all are verified purchases and so unlikely to just be company plants.





    Is this just a rebrand of another similar model from another company like Taylor or CDN?

    Don't have answers to your questions, but I've had excellent results with thermometers from http://www.thermoworks.com/, maybe a little higher initial cost but they do not seems to degrade with time.

    Their stuff looks pretty good, especially their alarm thermometers for barbecuing and meat smoking.

    Yeah I was looking at their stuff as well, I know the Thermapen has always got rave reviews, was looking at the Chef Alarm as well, but now I see that Dual Channel one, that's nice haha.

    But my two ancient hand me down dial thermometers have bit the dust recently in succession and I have decided to act my age and jump into this decade haha.

    Right now I've been steadily replacing and adding stuff  I need. I am only an at home cook at this point, I no longer actually work in restaurants and don't have the luxury of mooching off in house shared stuff and also a lot of my stuff at home was old and they're all either taking their turns at kicking the bucket or I just really want to replace and upgrade stuff. Anyhow, to make a long story longer, I don't really have the cheese to throw down on a $100+ thermometer right now, so in the meantime was looking to stay below $25 but get something reasonably reliable and accurate for checking temps on birds, roasts and also oil for frying.

    Eventually I already had my eye on either the Thermapen or Chef Alarm or one of the two high level CDN ones, but might just go full blown in the spring with something like the Dual Channel when I grill a ton more, that thing looks really sweet.
