I've used several digital and analogue meat thermometers in teh search for the right one and this one is easily the best of the bunch. I can trust its readings completely - a 160F beef or lamb roast is a perfect medium pink in the middle, a 180F chicken is cooked perfectly. It was handy to check my fridge temperature and the oven temperature test is very useful indeed and caused me to adjust my baking times knowing exactly how my oven temperature varies on any given gas mark. It's great for preserves too, but I'm afraid that the revewers who said that the probe doesn't go through the clip haven't understood how it works. The clip is designed to grip the probe very firmly, so you have to squeeze the sides of the clip together hard and then insert the probe. When you release the pressure on the clip it grabs the probe really solidly, as it should. My hunt for the right meat thermometer is over - this one's it.
