Bought this, reviews said it was used in brewing beer. I'm also going to use it for turkey frying.

I use this when heating up adhesive when replacing glass on cell phones. You have to keep the temp around 190? F. Much hotter with damage the underlying LED screen.

Picked this up a month ago for the same price. Works okay, seems to bounce the laser sight sometimes.

cool features:
Is backlit, on/off visible red laser.


This seems to be almost the normal price of this now...

I had one of these and used it occasionally for cooking, looking for drafts/cold spots in my home, teasing the cat with the laser, etc until I let someone borrow it and never got it back! In for a replacement!

Sure beats all my ideas since I got one, like shooting the walls, ceiling, furniture, people's faces...
But then again, 98% of the slickdealers that buy these, use it as a toy. It's worth every penny of enjoyment.

As I always mention on these deals, be sure to think about how reflective the surface you're looking at is. If it's shiny (like the bottom of a metal pan) you're going to get readings very far from reality. Also, IR is not transparent in the same wavelengths as visible light. This won't work through window glass, for example (but it does work for measuring the temperature of your windows!). Most painted surfaces will work well with this, since all paints tend to have an emissivity in the ballpark of 0.9-0.97. If you have a reflective surface you want to measure, either give it a quick coat or two of paint, or use a strip of electrical tape. That has the right emissivity for this thing's settings. Also, these can be somewhat unreliable outside as the sun is a very bright light source, and can throw off results even from matte surfaces. Make sure what you're looking at is shaded from the sun (likewise when using them indoors with lighting other than LED).

Finally, keep in mind spot size. As you get further from your target, you begin to sample a larger area (meaning you're actually measuring the average over a large area).
