Works great for Sous Vide as intended
Since this is a Sous Vide device (JXPROBE1) and not a thermometer for all cooking it is worthy of the stars (I didn't dock points for it not being able to do things it wasn't intended for). It would be incredible if it could be used for all cooking (candy making, deep frying etc) I am not sure why the limited temperature range except that maybe the electronics couldn't handle that type of heat since the device is magnetized to the pot. It was seemless to connect to my GE Cafe range via bluetooth. The biggest fault of this device is the battery does not last as long as required for most sous vide meat cooking (18+ hours). Twice now I have tried to do a 24 hour sous vide and have had to charge it during the process which means I now manually have to monitor the temp of the water while it charges. It does not appear that you can charge it while its cooking. And why no battery indicator light?? It has an LED display - put it to use. Or, since you can use the app to control the device add an alarm in there. I was fortunate to have caught it just as it was shutting off, if it had happened in the middle of the night my dinner would have been ruined. However, it has kept the water temp at what I had set it to and it is awesome to have this feature with my range. I hope more accessories come out similar to this.
