Probe control seems to work within a degree. The display is always within degree of the set temperature. Never seems to reach it exactly. As you can see it’s pretty close to my thermapen.
Given my initial test with just pan control, I think I’d only plug in the probe for things that require absolute preciseness. Candy making and maybe deep frying. For everything else, I think pan control will be good enough.
The probe one holder was hard to get onto the pan, but once it was on, it was super secure. I also like that you can easily angle the thermometer from the pan, so you can enter meat at an angle.
