This thermometer was recommended as a way to stop the transmission of bacterial diseases via undercooked meats. It is easy to use and the temperatures listed on it are accurate for the finishing of meats. It performs quite well and does "instant-read". The back-light comes in handy when grilling in near-dark. I really question the antimicrobial activity of the probe cover but that can be cared for but proper washing and hygiene. With the high incidence of food-borne diseases, this is a must and a quick way to insure the degree of cooking that is wanted. I bought 2- one for home and one for the cottage. This might be a great gift!!!!
