take it to the groccery store and check the temp of the packaged meets, apparently health inspectors love those things

you can make sure baked goods are completely cooled to room temp before sealing/packing.
also checking the temp of the uncooked side of meat while cooking if you experiment can find a perfect flip temp .... make sure your beer/wine is cold enough ... 32F before opening a bottle ....

I have one and use it when I make yogurt,as long as you have a clear hit ( not reading foam ) it works great and there is one less chance of contamination. I also use it deep frying ,same caution on where and how you point it. I also have used it breadmaking ,water temp for proofing the yeast, and checking my fridges and freezers. I would use it making beer but I've done that for so many years that I know by touch what is going on.
Check the pitza stone before putting bread on it in the oven as well.
Hey ! I guess for me it is getting used alright,Plus you can check machinery for heat/cooling problems,which is the original reason I got it ,it doesn't relace an internal probe obviously but for the right process it is magic and it makes a real cool " Beep "
I know this is an old thread but the prices have come down alot this year
