I love this little guy! Haha (LovIt)! I have cooked a few things that require specific temperatures and they all have turned out great! Ham, boiling water, eggs, etc, it works with so many things! It even read the room's temperature to the nose! The tip is sharp enough to pierce meat, but not needle-like, the buttons are accurate and are fully functional! I received this at a discounted price for my honest opinion.
