A good thermometer to have...I purchased this before the no touch and I always liked it and felt it was also accurate. Just not as easy and quick as the no touch

I recently purchased this from babies r us for $55 bucks. It's a replacement for my other Braun thermometer. I bought this for my 2nd child that I am expecting. Tested on my son and it worked like a charm. It's even better than the first one I bought. Really easy to use and accurate. It comes with some lids for the lens. I would recommend this product.

This was the easiest thermometer that I have used so far! It was super quick at reading the temperature as well. I do feel that it could be a little pricey for those families that may be on tight budgets, however I feel that it is worth it. I was completely satisfied with this product. The only thing I had a hard time with was my daughter not really liking anything in her ear due to previous medical issues.

Love this thermometer! I've used this one for 3 kids and It never falls me! It doesn't bother my kids. It's pretty easy to use and self explanatory. It has a memory on it so you can see what the last temp taken was. If it ever broke I'd replace it with the exact same one Lol.

This thermoscan is very convenient for little children and baby (that's old enough for this to be accurate). It's very hard for little ones to stay still for traditional thermometer so this little device save a lot of pain and frustration.

Since my daughter was born 11 years ago I have gone through two of these and I have bought my third one it is the only thermometer I would like around and it is well worth paying for more than once if you need to get another one great Dependable product also gives you peace of mind

I use this thermometer with my son when he was a baby. It does work well however I do feel like the battery dies faster than other thermometers do. And I don't like the fact that you are supposed to use a new cover every time you use it.

EASIEST way to take a squirmish toddlers temp. It is accurate and very quick! My daughter does not even realize I am taking her temp sometimes. It is worth the price!

I received this product compliments of Influenster and I was beyond excited. I was about to drop some money on the same product weeks earlier, but I was hesitate to spend the money not knowing if it worked well or not. Prior to this, I had used the forehead thermometer and was not too happy with the results because my toddler does not like to sit still and my husband is not that great at scanning it. That being said, I was excited at the Braun ThermoScan 5's arrival. My toddler actually sat still while I placed the tip of the scanner in her ear. I was amazed! It was very quick. I took three different measurements to average them out and they were in line with each other. I will say that it made a difference when I placed the scanner in her ear deeper. That seemed to work the best. I love that you can switch out the covers and toss them afterwards. I was very impressed and love the design. When you need a quick and accurate measurement, this is your best bet!

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