    Does this temperature meter cut the mustard?

    I'm collecting the bibs and bobs to get things cooking. I read in another thread how someone's thermometer wasn't good enough to accurately measure the temp and temp changes quickly enough. Alas, his thermometer was close to the one I have been using in my popper and was planning on using in my future corretto incarnation. So forewarned is forearmed, I quickly did a search for thermocouple on German Amazon and stumbled across this,

    https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00HA22XEC/...v_ov_lig_dp_it

    Up to scratch? Fit the bill? And so on and so forth? I, with my limited knowledge, assume it would do a fine job, but the experienced and more knowledgeable may have another opinion.

    Anyone?

    I'm not 100% sure if this thread is in the right place, if so, please feel free to correct that mistake.

    G'day "MJ74"....

    While the unit you linked to will measure temp's Ok, it won't allow you to monitor to a PC for charting purposes, etc.
    A DMM with datalogging facility would be more useful to that end and units are available from ~AUD$50 up to AUD$1,000+. All comes down to your budget and what you're prepared to spend...

    T/couples are inherently prone to variation in output throughout their rated temperature range due to non-linearity. However, they are consistently accurate within a narrow range and can be used as an accurate 'relative' temperature measurement device, say within the range required for roasting coffee from just before 1st-Crack and beyond.

    There is also the HeatSnob device that Andy has developed for use specifically for roasting coffee and is ideal for this purpose - No external metering required...

    Thanks Andy, I'm ducking over the pond in October so I plan to pick one up then. I'll contact you (the shop) just before I fly out.
