Oh my lord, this is a GODSEND. SO much easier than using an underarm thermometer. It works within seconds. Here's a tip-- if you cant change it from degrees Celsius, hold the power button down (while it's turned off) and the degrees Fahrenheit will come up!

Just received this thermometer, thanks Influenster and Braun!! We love it. We were given a different brand and it totally sucks compared to this one. It's easy to handle, reads in seconds. I especially appreciate the errors and troubleshooting card that comes with, because when I am panicking as a mom it's good to have a reminder on hand if something goes wrong!

I think all temperature taking methods are going to have some bit of variables besides the tried and true rectal thermometers. However, it is not always practical to get a nice fast rectal temperature. That is where these type of thermometers come in handy.

I am in love with this product. I actually received the thermoscan complimentary from Influenster to review and it is awesome. I have a one year old who loves to run away whenever she sees anything coming towards her mouth or ears and it gets a reading so quick, that she didn't know what was coming for her :) I love it. So quick and easy to use. def recommend

I received this thermometer from Influenster for testing, and I'm really glad I did! I've been needing to get a better one for the kids, and hadn't gotten around to it. It's really easy to use. It gets a reading in about 2 secs so it's not hard to use on a squirmy toddler who hates things in his ears. If I hadn't gotten this in a VoxBox I would buy it myself.

I don't think this is as accurate as other types of thermometers. It is a bit of a pain too. The replacment covers are expensive. The sensor that signafies weather he over is on has worn own and needs extra conviencing on our 2 year old themometer.

It's amazing! I have 3 year old twins, who are very impatient, especially when they are sick, and this takes an accurate temp within seconds. It's comfortable in their ears, and super easy to use. Highly recommend for kids of all ages!! So glad I got to try this product free from Influenster, would definitely purchase in the future for a back up.

I have a few devices and I only trust this one. The head check one always says some strange temperature (no way my kid is 80 degrees right now) and good luck keeping the thermometer in the kids mouths... but this one is a quick 5 seconds... and voila! Accurate and easy. So easy, my husband and I use it as well. A must for kiddos.

Got this for my first VoxBox. I LOVE it. We tested it out compared to our oral thermometer and it's surprisingly accurate. My husband and I were both skeptical because I've had other ear thermometers that were terrible. It reads very quickly and there's no more fighting my two year old to take his temperature. Only downside is the replacement covers can get a bit pricey, but other than that I highly recommend it. Thanks, Influenster!!

Would it be good idea to change the ear liners every time or is it safe to use the same one a few times?
