Can't beat the price so I now have a spare coming along with a set of "bear claws" for handling/shreading my smoker meats.  :)
Love that Amazon prime.....thanks for pointing out the promo code here too C.  :pizza:

I wonder why infrared thermometers have fallen dirt cheap but some instant read thermometers are still super pricey. 

I'm not sure they have come down. Higher quality ones are still about the same. I have one of these, and it's nowhere near the build quality of my other which cost about $79 if I remember correctly. It works fine; it's just flimsy.

I just bought a similar one from E Bay. It is not a Nubee but called Tomtop. It looks the same as the Nubee and it cost $18 A incl postage from China.

I will post a photo when I receive it. They certainly are a lot cheaper now. Maybe the International patent has run out, not that some countries worry too much about that little matter.

I just bought one on Amazon for $20, missed the deal. Could I use this to measure temps of a cup of water, a vessel of frying oil, a dough temp with accuracy ?

This will only measure the temperature of the surface of an object. Just for fun I filled a container with warm water and compared the readings of a IR gun (pointed at the surface of the water) and a thermocouple immersed in the water. They were with one degree Fahrenheit of each other. Good enough for pizza making, IMO.

"With accuracy" is problematic since the IR emissivity, which is used by the probe to estimate surface temps of different materials, can vary widely.

That's pretty darn accurate. Anyone try it on a ball of dough? But after some thinking, the temp of the surface of the dough could vary from the center but then again maybe not if the reading is taken right after a hand knead or a KA mix.
