comment
" ...  I like the collapsable stainless steel needle, which pops from the case with the tap of the button.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The manual recommends that the probe needs to be fully elongated while in use, which removes the advantage of being able to keep it bent and therefore away from the heat.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I am satisfied with it Only time will tell how durable it is, but I don't anticipate any problems ... After using it several times, it is fast easy to use and durable.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The buttons, or lack thereof - this is difficult to quickly grasp without inadvertently pressing a button. ... You see, there are no physical buttons, just areas that you touch that activate functions. ... With a button, you can feel that you are touching it, and it isn't activated until you press it down.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The on/off control was strange from the start, but I thought it was a matter of getting used to it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The idea of “touch and hold” buttons instead of “press and hold” is ridiculous and makes it infuriating to use.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I hate the static sensitive buttons however.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The power button as well as the C/F buttons both get accidentally pushed when handling the thermometer normally. ... The lack of tactile buttons means you don't realize when you have pushed one and you are constantly having to fiddle with it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  None of the “buttons” really work.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It reads the temp quickly but even the slightest touch of the Fahrenheit Celsius button switches back and forth.  ...  "
