Hot steam melts the faceplate Review by Home barista
Had hoped to use this thermometer for coffee making. On the first use, the thin clear-and-white plastic faceplate lifted up and melted like shrink wrap after a few seconds in hot steam. I will be returning it. (Posted on 12/28/2013)
A simple calibration is simple no more Review by Safety Dude
An earlier (9848) model featured a one touch, two second calibration, after 30 seconds in an ice bath. Later models now require at least five button pushes and about 15 seconds, after the ice bath. The manufacture recommends using a "reliable source" as a benchmark. Precision thermometers are priced too high for most operations. The boiling water method varies with altitude. The "ice bath", at 32 degrees is easier to obtain.
The model 9848 is held in an upright, natural position to calibrate. One could hold it one hand and use the thumb. The moder 9848EFDA requires a more awkward handling, pressing two buttons simultaneously.
Another feature of the 9848, now lacking on the 9848EFDA is temperature requirements of common items embossed on the probe sheath.
I'm sure that Taylor made these changes for some reason. While I prefer the 9848, the new model 9848EFDA is still a good buy. Very fast, acurate, and can be user calibrated. (Posted on 2/19/2009)
