About - Polder THM-360

The Polder THM-360 is part of the meat thermometer test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, meat thermometer models like the THM-360 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature accuracy:
To test for accuracy, we took multiple readings with each of the tested thermometers and compared them with readings from a calibrated thermometer. The readings were averaged and scored.

Response time:
Indicates how quickly each model adjusted to temperature changes.

Range:
This score reflects the span between the highest and lowest temperatures the model can register. A wider span makes the thermometer more useful.

Comment:
I bought this product based on the review in Consumer Reports. Boy, was I disappointed. Nearly from the start, the thermometer fails and fails constantly. Time to search out a thermometer that works. From other reviews, it doesn't sound like it is worth the time and effort to continually replace the probes. I wonder if I can get a refund?

This comes with 2 probes — but they both are black, so it can be hard to tell which is #1, and which is #2.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This failed the second time I used it! My first remote read at half the cost lasted for at least 10 years. I also suspect the temperature reading as our turkey came out bloody and had to place back into oven.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
