That looks exactly like the one I got for about the same price from eBay. I've been pretty happy with mine, and though I would not swear to the absolute accuracy of it, I'm sure it does read to within ±10°C.
The main problem I find with it is that if you use it to measure temperatures inside the oven, the black plastic tube leading to the sensor tends to heat up and lead to an over-reading.
But for the money, it's a good buy. It's amusing to use it to check the temperature of random objects in the environment. For example, point it up in the sky -- even on a sunny day (remember those?) it will read about -40°C. How hot do you think your TV screen gets? You might be surprised.
Looks exactly the same as the one I ordered from Amazon, and is waiting for me in Scotland. Can't wait to get my hands on it when I'm over in November. Until then, will just continue winging things! Thanks for putting instructions on, very handy for later use.
What a temp difference from Cyprus that will be think I'd stay in the med, though its been lovely here this summer.
Thanks for reminding me! ;D I'm not relishing the weather aspect one bit, but it will be lovely to see the family, celebrate my Dad's 80th, and my granddaughters first Christmas.
Been hearing how great the weather has been lately, although had to laugh at my daughter saying it was too hot in the house, the living room was at 27C...that's what I have my a/c set to, to cool down here! Far too hot here just now. 30C now at 06:40. Actually feels nice and cool outside just now, having coffee....another hour or so and it will be melting.
Had cousin & husband from your neck of the woods over in May. They were well taken with the WFO, and suspect they will be getting one at some point. I really must take some piccies again and put them on....last ones were on the old forum.
Indeed we do fry in this heat. 40C in the shade at the moment on my thermometer, gawd knows what temp it is in the sun. Can't wait for September when it will cool down a little. I am permanently in the shade if outside, and very little gets done just now. Afraid that it really is too hot to use the WFO much just now, as it's in full sun from lunchtime until sun starts to go down. Am intending putting some kind of shade over for next year.
Flamin Heck! You could roast a whole hog in that thing.
It looks tremendous, what's the fireing up time?
Yes it is a big oven. I really meant to go for the medium size, but after a couple of glasses of wine, I thought that the biggest was what I wanted! They do small, medium and large here. Small is really tiny, and would never have suited. Medium would have been probably ok. This size means I always have to be sociable, and invite people round. ;D
Firing up time, using the upside down method, with kindling on top, is about an hour. Was much longer with the old style method, and had some total disasters when I let someone else light up the fire. Food looked cooked, but was raw inside.
From that disaster, I have never let anyone near my oven again
