Salter Instant Read Digital Meat ThermometerScores 8.5 out of 10 based on 15 reviews

Clear readings, easy to use. Good value for money. Just what I need for making yogurt etc.
After just one use I knocked it from the worktop to the floor, and it no longer worked so I had to throw it away.
I appreciate it's a piece of technology, and I should have been more careful, but I didn't expect it to pack up so easily.

Small and sleek.
Stopped working when I went to use it a second time. Only some parts of the digits were showing, making it unreadable.

easy to read, seams accurate when compared to another thermometer. Handy for pasteurizing juices as it sits in the bottle neck.
it is a little slow to settle at the temperature
