Well so far the Oxo has worked okay for me. Maybe I'll try it on my gas grill. <EG> (30 day satisfaction refund guarantee)

I'm surprised this plastic cable survives ordinary oven roasting temperatures.

Does the Oxo have an alarm to tell you when it reaches the target temperature?

I have a leave in probe like that (different brand) and I absolutely love it! Mine was only around $10, but I've verified the accuracy with ice cold water, boiling water, and tested against another thermometer. It has a 3 foot plastic coated cord, and can withstand temps up to 450. I use it for everything- smoking, roasting, grilling, sous vide- you name it! It's probably gotten hotter than 450 on the grill and hasn't been damaged. Since it was only $10, I won't be too concerned when the cord goes bad. I've probably already gotten my money's worth lol
