After looking at so many clocks, this particular one stood out as being the most aesthetic and easy to use. It is compact - the projection is precise and the entire clock is easy to use and program. For further assistance there is a Youtube video as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. A handsome little unit!
Great product, as I was hoping it would be.
Weather outside will not register
Works well Looks good. I hope it lasts a long time.
Provides temperature and relative humidity in a small package.m device is clearly visible on a cloudy day from over 15 feet away.
This simple timer is easy to set and operate. The setting dial is a bit sensitive, so it's quick to go from 0 to 55 minutes for that quick bread your making, but if you're not careful you'll set it for 55 min. 22 seconds. Easy enough to go back and forth to get it on the dot, but I've never found it that important.
The numbers on the face are nice and bright when you set it, but quickly go to dim, I guess to save power. This makes it a little hard to see how much time you have left if the timer is magnetically attached to your fridge and you're across the room. Starting and stopping it is easy by tapping the top or bottom of the face. The volume of the beeping can be adjusted and it's loud enough to hear from the living room. It also keeps the original time when it stops which is good if you're making burgers and want three minutes on a side. Clearing to 0 just takes another tap.
I think it's odd that it takes three AA cell batteries. Other timers tend to use just one (assuming it's not USB rechargeable). I don't know why it needs that much power, since, as I said, it's pretty simple. It also increases the weight, which may affect its stability when it's on the fridge door or whatever. All in all, though, a nice timer.
This reminds me of my old Kitchen Aid timer which I still have. This timer, however, is easier to set: twist clockwise to increase the timer value, and twist counterclockwise to decrease the timer value. And if you want to increase or decrease by minutes, just twist faster and the minutes will then increase or decrease. It's all very intuitive. I use this mostly as a Pomodoro timer for work, but I've used it just as effectively in the kitchen for recipes. The device seems robust enough to last. Whether you stick it to a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, or just leave it on the desk or table you're working on, the twisting motion always works to set it. The minute numbers are about an inch in height and the seconds, about half. The alarm sound is controlled by a switch on the bottom of the unit: alarm off, soft alarm, and loud alarm. The only thing I would change about this alarm is to make the loud alarm sound louder and the soft alarm softer. As they are no, there's not too much difference between either sound. But that's simply my take, yours may be different. This is an excellent alarm, easy to use, and looks good besides.
This is a pretty nice digital meat thermometer that ACCURATELY measures internal meat temps in about 2 seconds – faster than most of the digital thermometers out there. It is spot on accurate - used this thermometer, and two analog thermometers, and all read exactly the same temp.
It is very easy to use, very easy to clean, and tucks away nicely in my drawer. One aspect I really like is that this thermometer automatically turns on when you pick it up – this means it is ready to use as soon as you pick it up! The digital display has an auto rotating display – beats trying to read a temp upside down
This thermometer is not waterproof, but I do not plan on immersing it in water. Wiping it down after use (I also use a disinfectant wipe as the final wipe) is not a problem – won’t ever put it in a sink full of water, or toss in the dishwasher. While some of the digital meat thermometers advertise the heck out of being “waterproof”, I do not see that as an advantage unless you plan on tossing it in the dishwasher, or immersing it in a sink full of water to clean it.
The quality of this thermometer is as good as most of the higher priced ones, but at a much lower price!
We like to cook roasts and BBQ some bigger cuts of meat with long cook times, and it is very helpful to have thermometers like this that have alarms that let us make sure we’re not ruining our dinner and wasting our money by over or under-cooking. Put the probe in your brisket, get it on the grill, and when the alarm sounds, you’ll know it's the temperature you want it! The nice thing about 2 probes is that you can check the temp in two places (like the thigh and breast on a chicken) or the temps of two different items. In the few times I’ve tried it, this 2-probe thermometer appeared to register a reasonably accurate temperature, and again, it has an alarm that goes off when your food meets your desired temp. The only note I’d make is that the probes are thick and will leave a pretty good-sized hole in your food. That doesn’t bother me personally, because I'm not using this thermometer to check my delicate dishes, but if that’s a consideration for you, you might like a thinner probe.
I ordered this turbo replace a similar thermometer I had a few years ago that broke. It is very helpful when cooking a large piece of meat, like a Thanksgiving turkey, have a thermometer that lets you monitor the temperature without having to open the oven repeatedly.
This one is much better than the previous one I owned. There are two probes, and a digital display is large and easy to read. There are idiot proof settings for a different cuts of meat, with photos to represent the different animals. I experimented with a chicken tonight, and it turned out great.
I decided to use both probes, and put one in the breast, and one in the leg. Almost immediately, I was getting an alert that the leg was over cooked, but it turns out I had pushed the probe all the way through the leg. I found that reassuring that the thermometer is picking up differences and the temperatures!
I do need to spend some time looking through the instruction, manual more thoroughly to make sure I understand the nuances in the settings.
I will feel much more confident this Thanksgiving cooking my turkey with this thermometer.
This looks like a great little device. I like everything about it so far. It totally sets itself up and goes to work all automatically. When I first plugged it in it was on the wrong time zone and the wrong calendar year. Within a few minutes it somehow figured out what time zone it was in... no idea how it figured that out. It was on the 2000 year calendar also. That changed itself to the right calendar within a couple minutes as well. Of course it also got all the other information it needed either over the WiFi or by radio signals. I really like that it shows the relative humidity for both indoors and outdoors. Indoor/outdoor thermometers have a tendency to interfere with each other when there are more than one around. This is a condo... and there are several in the area. My other indoor/outdoor unit often gets shut down, or loses contact with the outdoor transmitter and has to have the batteries taken out and put back in to reset it. So far that has not happened to this BALDR unit. The backlight is a great feature! I like that it shows both indoor and outdoor humidity as well. Having a power supply and not needing batteries in the indoor unit is also economical and convenient. I would definitely recommend this nice little device to anyone who wants such a unit. I haven't seen anything nearly as nice as this. The instructions looked a little complicated... but, I soon realized that I didn't need them much at all! It knows what to do!
This came in a marked cardboard box. I bought this to replace an old manual one that bit the dust. It takes 3 AAA batteries and has a sealed battery compartment. It screwed on to the faucet easily and was easy to set and run. Only time will tell its durability.
This is a nice, basic timer with easy programming, and options from one minute on up! The batteries were easy to install (unlike several of my other timers that have battery compartments that are hard to open). So far it has been operating as scheduled without a problem. Since it is round, it is "in-line" with the hose and spigot, which makes it easier to put onto a multi-connector at the water source (I have a 4-way splitter on the spigot). Most of the timers I can find now are square or rectangular, and stick off to the side which sometimes makes it hard to install on a splitter. The programming display uses lights rather than a digital display screen, which I think might be better in the long run since those screens sometimes quit working. Timers have gotten kind of pricey and complicated, I'm hoping this one will fill the bill for single connection reliability. So far, so good!
Great product. Very sturdy and functions nicely. Setup was not hard, but you need to read the instructions carefully. The app will guide you most of the way. The product did not leak when I turned the water on, so it did what it should. However, I discovered that my hose valve leaks when I have the water on. So if you have a leaky hose bib, you won’t be able to use this product unless you don’t mind the leak. All in all this product is a great way to irrigate without having to go outside!
I really love these Rainpoint smart wifi irrigation timers - right now I'm using 3 of them to control my lawn and garden irrigation (a 2-zone timer and now two 1-zone timers). I started using them this spring, and now that it's fall my garden is looking better than ever. Big pumpkins, juicy tomatoes, green landscape plants.
Before getting these I had to turn the irrigation on and off to the various garden areas manually. I'd often forget or just let it go too long between waterings. These allow me to set irrigation schedules that turn on and off automatically. I've been using them all summer, and they've yet to miss a beat.
It's all controlled through the smartphone app. The instructions suggest using the Rainpoint app, but this app is a spinoff of the Tuya Smart app, which I strongly suggest you use instead of the Rainpoint app. While setup with Tuya is a little less intuitive, it gives the ability to control by voice with Alexa which is nice to have. (Alexa, water my lawn!). The Rainpoint app is not recognized as an Alexa skill.
