Seriously? In a $10 meter? Actually, I'm always surprised that any "budget" meters include that, but you're right, quite a few do, so I'm sure you'll be able to find something in the $20-40 range that has what you need. Just curious, what do you use it for? I mean, I know what it is, I'm an Electrical Engineer and for 30 years I've worked with equipment where a few picoFarads makes a difference, and we even make commercial equipment that tests that, but that's a different domain altogether. What's the practical purpose you found for capacitance measure in a handheld DMM? (or was that whole thing a troll post?)

BTW, yes, I'll echo the other comments mentioned here -- this is a great meter for $10 and way better than the HF garbage. I had one of the "free" HF ones once, and it's the only DMM I did actually throw in the garbage (well, electronics recycling box).

I love a cheap DMM as much as the next guy, and these "Craftsman" ones are really pretty darned good... having a couple of Fluke's myself, I'll grab this and it will be fine for almost anything I need plus I can toss it around a toolbox or a car trunk and keep a few extras scattered around.

I have this and it is waaaaayyy better than the free HF ones. It's larger, has a rubberized casing, and the probes are much better quality. Overall it just feels like a quality unit. You won't get a better MM for any cheaper.

Are you guy serious comparing this one with the free HF ?? The HF multimeter is disposable!! just the fact that the craftsman has beep sound when testing for continuity put it miles ahead, and the build quality is much much better than the HF.

The HF ones are a joke! I used one to check the resistance of the injectors for my mom's car. Just the lead touching each other had considerable resistance. I had to add that number to what the reading was!

This is a nice multimeter. You won't find better for $10.

I don't have a K-Mart anywhere near me, and with $5 shipping, it's less slick. However, this can be found on Amazon for the same price if you're a Prime member.
