a wonderful addition to my cheese making test equipment

Rating:

Pros:
  • it works
Cons:
  • instructions on package were an eye test
From: Forks Washington
Could not be happier with this purchase. Nice looking, and I trust the results. Used other equipment to check the accuracy. Right on! A nice addition to my cheese cave in a dorm refrigerator.

Thermoworks makes reliable equipment and this is an excellent thermometer/hygrometer. Be aware that: 1) humidity cannot be read remotely as noted in the description, so the device has to be placed inside the location you want to be reading and 2) the humidity accuracy is ±3% RH and temperature accuracy is ±2°F

Easy to use

Bought this as I turned a mini fridge into a 'cheese cave'. Display takes a few seconds to adjust after opening so easy to see what's going on inside, min max button shows high and lows and after resetting takes a few seconds to read again so I have time to close the door. Would highly recommend

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.
