Dr.Meter IR-20 Non-contact Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer

This Dr.Meter IR-20 Non-contact Digital Laser Infrared Thermometer is great! We've mostly just used it for cooking right now, such as seeing how hot the oven or grill is. However it has so many uses- hot/cold spots in the house for insulation, making sure your air vents are working, checking temps in refrigerators or freezers, air condition leaking from windows and doors, the list goes on and on!

We found the readings to be fairly accurate- based on thermostat setting and air vent outputs around the house, and known oven, refrigerator, and freezer settings. It comes with a manual to show you how to use all the buttons on the back.  It also comes in a nice holster (with belt loop if needed) for when it's not in use.

The only challenge we had with it was with the battery door/compartment. The included 9 volt is a tight fit in the compartment. When you close the battery door it catches on the top of the trigger, turning on the thermometer. With the laser on the same side you could accidentally shot it where you don't want to (a face or eye for example). Thankfully you shouldn't need to change the battery out too often.


I received this item for free in exchange for review, however all opinions are my own.
