Maverick ET-733 Review
The Maverick ET-733 is a versatile long range wireless dual probe thermometer that is excellent for smoked meats as well as other grilled foods. You can remotely monitor temperatures from 300 feet away for convenient grilling without having to watch your food cook. This thermometer allows you to monitor not only one temperature but two, so you can get your temperature readings from the grill as well as the meat simultaneously.
Programmable alerts allow you to know if your meat goes above or below your pre-programmed range, while the 15 preset temperatures allow you to cook your meat perfectly, whether you are cooking beef, lamb, veal, pork, chicken, or even wild game meats like buffalo or bore.
A remote receiver is included with this thermometer, as well as a remote transmitter and an ambient probe. Four AAA batteries power this thermometer right out of the box. While many users find Maverick to be very accurate over a long-term basis, some users find that this thermometer behaves erratically and gives false readings.
Another concern about this thermometer is the requirement to start it in the right sequence in order to receive the results you want.
- Remotely monitor temperatures from 300 feet away
- Monitor two temperatures at once
- Programmable alerts
- 15 preset temperatures for game or standard meats
- Remote receiver is included
- thermometer sometimes behaves erratically
- you must start the unit in the right sequence
Maverick Pro-Temp PT-100 Review
This commercial grade thermometer is NSF approved so you know the performance is guaranteed to NIST standards. This Maverick Pro-Temp PT-100 has a type K thermocouple that has a integral stainless precision microchip probe within plastic housing that will prove durable. The thermometer is water resistant and can measure a temperature range from negative 40 degrees Fahrenheit all the way up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
This thermometer is shock proof and offers an auto on and off so you will not waste energy. This thermometer is easy to care for by simply hand washing and allowing to air-dry. This is an accurate thermometer that offers all the features you would expect in a commercial grade thermometer. It can hold up to an intense environment and will certainly hold up to your uses.
This thermometer does not allow for remote monitoring, so it will not be as good for people who want to be alerted to temperature changes from their meat while they are a long ways away from their food. The thermometer also tends to work slowly for its accuracy, so if you want quick readings so you can measure and be on your way, this thermometer may prove frustrating for you.
The design of this Maverick thermometer utilizes a snap close feature that can prove dangerous when the probe is hot and the user goes to close it as usual. Be careful if you choose this thermometer to always use a protective shield or wait until the thermometer probe is cool to close it.
