Digital Thermometer 3 "Not an oven themometer" Mr Rickaby 10 April 2015 The description of this device on the website should make it clear that it only goes up to 200C. Above this is shows 'Too hot', so can't really be used to check oven temperatures, although it's fine for foodstuffs. Other than that it's ok, and the temperature alarm feature is useful. People complaining about the lifetime of the product should realize that cheap electronic devices like this will have a limited lifetime in the average kitchen - that is why there is such a huge price difference between domestic kitchen equipment and professional items. A note from the team Thank you for placing your review and providing feedback to help others. It's true this digital thermometer will not take temperature readings over 200C degrees and your clarification on lifetime of a product is spot on, thank you.
