Customer Reviews:

  • Quick Temperature Reading
    This is a great product and definitely lives up to its product description. The unit has a solid feel and I don't have the impression that it is a low quality product. Temperature readings are quick and accurate as far as I can tell. It provides many uses such as confirming the temperature of foods to finding heat sources in your home. It has helped me pinpoint the areas in my house that I am losing precious air-conditioning.

    My biggest problem with the thermometer is the laser, the infrared temperature reads from a much larger area than the laser points to and until you get used to the unit you may be confused by the temperature reading for areas at a distance of 4 feet or more away.

    But all in all a great product....more info
  • Does what it says
    Shipped very quickly. Build quality isn't top notch, but for the price it's satisfactory. But as an Infrared thermometer it works exceptionally well. It's accurate, gives instant spot readings over all types of surfaces and temperature ranges. It's a joy to use. Point and shoot and you know instantly if your air-con's working correctly, where the draughts are, and how hot is the radiator?

    Like it a lot. Will get a more durable (and expensive) thermometer next year. Great budget tool!...more info
  • Seeing the (Infrared) Light
    Cooking is a hobby of mine. Most cooks, be they amateur or pro, know that temperature control often spells success or failure in a dish. In the past, I have used an Infra-Scan TR-101 non-contact Infrared thermometer. It was light, compact and accurate for my needs. Its big drawback was that it was powered with four button batteries that had to be replaced with some frequency.

    As a replacement tool I choose the Kintrex IRT0421. It is powered with two AAA batteries, which are more commonly found and less expensive to purchase. I like the gun handle design and feel. It is slightly larger to store in a kitchen drawer. The trigger button is under the handle curve. The C/F degree control button is on top below the readout screen. I often find myself initially pushing the top button when I want to take a measurement. Possibly the C/F degree control button is too convenient. One big plus is that I no longer consider the non-contact Infrared thermometer as a uni-task cooking device. It has also spilled over to my other hobby, home maintenance/improvement. I am pleased with this purchase....more info
  • Good Product
    We just use this around our home, but it is very accurate and good reminder to close the drapes etc....more info
  • .1 degree resolution is misleading
    So they tout this unit as having a .1 degree resolution. That's absolutely true. Once I got the unit, the manual reiterated the resolution claim and added that the ACCURACY is 1.8 degrees. OK, so the unit will give me readings down to the .1 degree level, but it is only accurate to the 1.8 degree level? A little misleading.

    That said, it is pretty handy to aim and shoot and get a temp. It really has been handy in the kitchen and for my computer. But don't let the overly percise resolution fool you into thinking it is more accurate than it really is. ...more info
  • KINTREX IRT0421 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer
    The KINTREX IRT0421 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer works very well. It is easy to use and takes fairly accurate measurements (compared with a digital thermometer in the same area). One benefit is the fact that it runs on two AAA batteries and has a quick startup and shut-down to conserve their life. ...more info
  • **Verstatile tool for jobs around the house**
    I bought this thermometer to find the radiant heat coils in my floor. It worked perfectly and I soon was able to diagram all the runs within each of our six zones. From there, I found I could use this for finding cold spots around windows, outlets and even within our walls where insulation had settled or was missing. And then I was able to check refrigerator, oven temps, etc. Versatile and easy to use. And it has a great distance to spot ratio of 12:1. Highly recommended!...more info
  • Unit great; pouch not so much
    The product itself works as well as indicated by all the 5-star reviews. I'm giving it 4 instead of 5 because the pouch doesn't quite work. The thermometer head is longer and skinnier than top of the pouch -- it's as if the unit design changed but the pouch didn't. The handle portion does fit well....more info
  • Very good product for the price
    Fast response time. Easy to use and very accurate. I love everything about this product!...more info
  • provides a fast ball park measurement
    Simple to use, no set up required.

    Product does NOT have adjustable emissitivity which means it can read higher or lower than the real surface temperature depending on the reflective consistency of the surface being measured.

    This product is fine for a quick ball park temperature reading and is great to use to scan across a surface to find any temperature deviation like a wall area....more info
  • Great! Instant results.
    This instrument is excellent in locating air leaks. It's a great addition to my husband's collection of instruments and has provided hours of entertainment to everyone who has seen it.....adults and kids alike....more info
  • Good quality product, accurate readings
    The build quality of this infrared thermometer is great, good design and feels very solid. The laser provides pinpoint accuracy on the surface that is being measured. I found the readings to be very accurate +/- 2 degrees for an instrument in this price range. The display is easy to read and the 15-second automatic shut-off is perfect. ...more info
  • Very Awesome Product!
    Ok this has got to be the coolest kind of food thermometer yet! Normally these kind of thermometers are like over $100.00! For around $40.00 for a laser food thermometer, definitely not bad at all! It works very well for culinary school uses that I happen to use it for so if you are someone that needs a laser food thermometer, I definitely recommend this one for the quality and price!...more info
  • Using it for cooking
    Versitile tool to use when cooking. Let's you know what temp your frying pans are at, etc. ...more info
  • Excellent product
    This temperature meter is great, very easy to use and comfortable. It also has a good price....more info
  • Good unit at a good price
    The unit works as advertised, check items of known temperature shows it to have a good calibration. Quite happy with the unit....more info
  • great buy
    This is a great product. You can't beat the price for this level of quality....more info
  • Set Thermometer for Stun
    OK, This is another gadget that my lord and savior Alton recommends as a ridiculously great tool.

    The interface is easy and the construction is sturdy. It also comes with a belt holster which is really important when I go to Trek conventions. In the 3 days I've had it I've been able to determine the temperatures of my cats, dog, and cooking surfaces. It's also a great laser pointer for your cats if your really into that thing.

    I've been using it to determine the perfect temperature to sear meat and to find the exact point when scrambled eggs are done. This isn't a necessity but I believe my grill season will be bountiful and full of delicous properly seared chops,steaks, and briskets. ...more info
  • Slick!
    This is an easy to hold, easy to read, easy to use IR non-contact thermometer. I'm very happy with it so far. The laser shows exactly what area is being measured. It's really slick! ...more info
  • Great for many uses!
    I purchased this thermometer to check the temperature of a Himalayan salt block and see when it was ready to cook, but I have found numerous other uses for it! I have found some areas of heat leakage in my house from inadequate insulation. I can easily check the chimney of the wood stove to make sure it is not overheating. Very helpful in baking/cooking applications to help check temperatures without dirtying another thermometer.
    It's also just fun to see surface temperatures of different items!
    It seems to be accurate and has really rapid response times....more info
  • Does the job
    Seems to do fine for general temp. readings. Could use an on/off button however.I'm satisfied....more info
  • Savvy Shopper
    I bought this on a whim, thinking it might be useful occasionally, but I think it might be one of those devices which, surprisingly, may become indispensable.

    Within days I had used it to check the temperature of: pans and skillets before sauteing, the temperature of the food as it cooks (and cools), oven thermostat, fermenting wine must, wall insulation / heat loss.

    Accuracy is more than adequate. The display is clear and easy to read. It is very easy to toggle between Fahrenheit and Celsius (but perhaps too easy, since the switch can be pressed accidentally by the thumb when the device is held - no big deal). I like the fact that it uses AAA batteries - though I would have preferred AA. When the supplied alkaline batteries expire I can use rechargeable.

    Be aware that this thermometer comes with a useful protective pouch/holster which is easily overlooked in the packaging - unfortunately mine is now in the landfill....more info
  • Works like a charm.
    I'm no expert in this type of device, but this one seems to work very nicely with a reasonably large display. Absolutely no complaints so far. Only uses 2 AAA batteries. Would buy again....more info
  • Kintrex infrared thermometer
    KINTREX IRT0421 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer with Laser The thermometer arrived on time as shiped by the seller. The instrument works exceptionally well, and easily shows where cold air and drafts were comming into my house. It also does a good job of allowing you to tune your furnace registers, by monitoring the temperatures at each register, and turning the deflection traps in the furnace pipes, to allow more flow (warmer temperatures) in areas of the house, and evening the temperature throughout the house....more info
  • Great Thermo
    This is a great product and about the fastest shipping I've seen to date. Product works fantastic right out the box. I greatly recommend this product especially in the professional arena of food sciences....more info
  • Kintrex Clear Temp
    This is a very handy gadget and it works great. It reads temps fast and accurate and has hundreds of uses....more info
