When I first received this product it would not work properly. And so I wrote a 3 star review. Megan at StarTop immediately sent me a e-mail
expressing concern. She offered to replace or refund my purchase. I accepted to receive a replacement which I received in a mater of a few days.
I have since used this product and am totally happy with the quality and performance. It is amazingly fast and efficient . I would certainly recommend it. Quality, Performance, Price. cant beat it!!!!

Triple A for customer service
We all know that things can go wrong sometimes. It's not the things that work that tell us about a company , it's the customer service that we receive . When I received my first one it wouldn't come on . I tried different batteries I tried turning the batteries around . Nothing worked . These people contacted me before I even have a problem . When I did receive my thermometer , and it wouldn't come on I notified them right away . They were very helpful , gave me some ideas as to what to try , but assured me from the start of the conversation that if it didn't work they would replace it . They were very nice and replaced it. My second one works like a charm .

I got a bad one, So I can not recommend this thermometer
This did not work for me. Having put the thermometer is cooked chicken that was done it read 20F while still on a hot grill. I smacked it on my hand and it started working. But then it would read really low again after a bit. Something must be loose inside. I may have just got a bad one, so I can not recommend this thermometer.
*Edit - based on this review the seller sent me a new one that does work. But they were very pushy with their E-mails bugging me every single day to change this review. I told them I would change it and I am still getting Emails. So the product is fine, they replaced it. Just a real annoying company. So here's your extra star. Leave me alone now please.

Global warming? Nope - just my steak cooked accurately!
Got the product quickly, and came just in time as my old, inefficient analog thermometer died for good this time. This timer is fast and accurate. Been wanting one like this for a long time, but thought I'd "get by" with cheaper thermometers. This seemed accurate, to, as the temperature of the steak I cooked matched the expected doneness I wanted. Wish I'd bought this sooner!

Nice cooking tool!
I got it as my third thermometer at a deal. Still works pretty well, 5stars deserves. I can make sure my each meal is exactly perfect! No overcook again!
I like to make espresso coffee with 1 small cup milk at morning, with some toast bread, sandwiches. it does good help for my breakfast. I can get the exact coffee temperature with thermometer. Quick and accurate!
Specially, magnet design on its back is great!!! that I used to put in right on the side of my fridge, easy to store, easy find it.
Last weekend, I spent a BBQ day with my friend George, and we used it as well as the same. This item really does a good help to check grill meat’s temp. George was so glad to use it, even wanted to check everything that we cook. He never uses the tool before, and he said he is enjoy it easily to know the temp at any time. Maybe I should buy a new Habor for him.

Remember, can't calibrate it...UPDATE!
I'll never purchase another thermometer that I can't calibrate! Mine came 3.2 deg. F off on the low end the 4.3 deg. F off at the high end.
Edit: Seller noticed my 2 star post and contacted me. They sent another thermometer out right away and it's spot on. Good service. Bumping from 2 stars to 4.

Easy to use and find
I wanted to replace an older digital thermometer when I became suspect of its accuracy. Turns out it was accurate, but I like this Harbor Instant one so much better! It is more compact and doesn't have a random probe that gets in the way during storage. It's easy to read, which is good so that I don't need to find my glasses to use it. And it's easy to find - not only is it red so it won't get lost in a drawer, but with the magnet, I can hang it on the refrigerator door or the range hood and have it easily accessible. Oh, and it registers a lot faster than my older thermometer. So far, no complaints.

Very Good Value
I received my Habor Instant Read Meat Thermometer on time and in good condition. The unit is well-constructed, folds/unfolds easily and smoothly, and the “feel” of it is good. I checked it’s accuracy on boiling water and it gave the correct figure for my area’s altitude (~210.3 degrees F). The device arrived at the correct temperature in <4 seconds after submerging . A bit later, gauging the temperature of a pork shoulder, the thermometer arrived at the final reading <4 seconds after insertion.
I have been using the unit consistently for two weeks and it is still feels solid and the folding mechanism is good. I must say that the device‘s magnet allows me to keep it on the refrigerator - handy and in plain view . . . a real plus!
UPDATE 17Feb2018 (almost 2.5 months of ownership) : I cook quite a bit, and I use my Habor thermometer several times on most days. It has remained intact, it still has the tight feel that I noticed initially, and it reads temperatures just as quickly as it did at first. I am still very happy with it!

Takes the guesswork out. Love it.
Easy to use / read. Folds up nicely to protect the prong, and the LCD readout is large and easy to read, even in low-light conditions (like when I'm doing BBQ late at night). :-) Because of the magnets on the back, this thermometer's "home" is on the side of the fridge, making it an easy grab whether I'm heading for the patio or heading for the oven.
My favorite application is using it while baking salmon. Rules for salmon are 145F internal temp, and cooking the fish at 400F until it reaches between 145 - 150 (about 16 minutes for my oven) keeps it moist. Overcooked salmon gets dry quick, so taking it to the precise temp needed for food safety makes my day. This unit takes the guesswork out.
Design bonus: If you think you'll use it a lot by the BBQ, the handle has a nice hole in the end in which you can put a lanyard or a carabiner.
