I purchased an oven thermometer from ThermoWorks on Monday and it arrived in the mail already today. I also purchased an extra probe. This is kind with the 3 foot wire and the timer sits outside the oven while the probe is in the meat.
My oven seems possessed
. Sometimes too hot and sometimes too slow. Of course, I have checked it, but they (yes, I said possessed) just act right when they know I'm doing that
. (Actually, I'm sure it is the cheap meat I'm buying more likely).
Anyway, has anyone had good luck with keeping these things (oven thermometers) alive for more than a few months? I keep hearing horror stories about them and with the extra probe I just sank $32 buck into it so I expect to get some good production.
