This hygrometer is perfect for testing the humidity in a cheese cave. It can also display two separate temperature readings using a sensor on a 10 foot cable (included) to also measure temperature in a remote location. The humidity sensor is housed...

maybe better for larger cheese caves

Just know that the lead to measure in a remote location is only for temperature. To get a humidity reading you have to have the control in the actual area being measured. For smaller areas, it makes it very hard to know what the humidity actually is, since as soon as you open the door the humidity is lost, and the control takes a few seconds to turn on.

It says this in the info, just not very clearly.

the previous reviewer may have been unfamiliar with the hygrometer.

The moisture/temp will change as the cool air mixes with the room air but it takes a little time to register on the hygrometer. Make sure you note this as soon as you open the small fridge (they are referring to the small dorm fridge I believe).

Also the hygrometer has a min/max setting to give you the range of temp/moisture in the aging space over time. I always make a habit of resetting this each time I close the fridge.

I find this to be very accurate and have a couple in different aging spaces here. I have tested all against more high end moisture measuring devices and they read within about 1-3% of those for both moisture and temperature.
