Polder Compliment - Polder 371 Quick Tip Instant Read Thermometer

Review by 14600 on 2007-08-24
NORMAN, OKLAHOMA -- I'm trying to be healtheir. I've been exercising, gave up beer and starting eating more chicken instead of pizza and hot pockets. I like grilled chicken but my girl friend who has some sort of raw chicken phobia always thinks the chicken is undercooked. So I thought to settle this I need a meat thermometer. I gotta tell ya though finding just the right one was like trying to find a lion in the streets of Denver Colorado... I tried a couple from wal*mart that sucked rocks cause it took too long to get a reading and they weren't very accurate. I did a little research and bought the Polder 371 Quick Tip Instant Read Thermometer from Amazon dot com for around 20 bucks including shipping. I LOVE THIS THERMOMETER! It registers the temperature in like 2 or 3 seconds. It's very accurate and easy to use. It's small with a clip like an ink pen so can carry it in your pocket to a restaurant in case you need to get a quick reading before you eat half an order of undercooked wings. The tip of the thermometer is very sensitive so that moving to different parts of the meat shows instantly the changes in temperature. Now my little honey eats my chicken with a new found confidence. I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend this product to the membership!

*tears* Thank you Stewart, but the one that I got from King Soopers for about a third of that price works just fine for me. No worries here and you'd have to be an idiot to eat a half an order of raw wings!

Carrying that sharp thing in one's pocket could be unsafe for one's health and I would not recommend taking it to the air port. JMO

But I voted you VH just because.

I bet you could even take your temperature with this bad boy.

VH, but, but no thanks to Slim for putting that picture in my head!

Pretty scary huh. So your first reaction wasn't this thing sticking out of his mouth either I take it.

Very nice review Stew. One quick question, if you please. What is the waiter's reaction when you whip that Polder out in the restaurant?

How can you tell if a Thermometer is accurate or not? I mean, if you can tell whether it's the "right" temp or not then you really don't need one, do you?

Good post, will buy one. Greenie earned! (just realized we already have one)

Stew, stop begging, you know we were all going to give you greenies if your post was any good, which it was.

First of all Nohandle and (B)asher I couldn't help but notice neither of you voted this 'Very Helpful'. Come on ladies, where's the love?

Nohandle - It depends on the gender of the waiter. When I whip the polder out the males are shamed and the females...well let's just say they are impressed.

Basher - I'm glad you asked. I used my polder to measure the temp of boiling water.... clocked in at 100 degrees celsius.

Well....excuse me Mr. Stew. How do you know who voted you "Very Helpful"? Sometimes it's the people you least expect. I just voted another member "very helpful" on a review and didn't bother to announce it. OK, the rules have changed so we need to make a production..right? I understand now.

Now back to the matter at hand. The females in a restaurant are impressed with the testing of the temperature? Excuse me, I would think they would all, regardless of gender, look at you with that "I wonder" look. No matter. Let me know the next time you and Sue are out. I'd love to be at an adjoining table.
