    Have you done a review yet Tim?

    If you give the nod, i'm buying. Need something that lites up and quite frankly, the new style Thermopens SUCK.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.

    PS - When is maverick gonna fix the issues with the ET-73?
    I will have the replacement for the ET-73 prolly in time for Christmas.
    they assure me that all issues with the ET-73 have been corrected. Everything for the cheap little switches, to having to disassemble the unit to reset, to an alarm to let you know when you go out of range, to the range itself.

    What prollems have you had with the splashproof TPs Bubba? I haven't had any issues with them other than price.

    As to the Maverick unit, this is my review. I have had good performance from it.

    PM me, we'll work something out for you to give it a try.

    Agree. I really like the 2 I have (still work) but if they fix some of those issues it would be easier to buy again when the need arises.

    Hey everyone, Tim here from Thermoworks. Glad someone mentioned the 10 hour to 1500 hour battery life difference between the Maverick ProTemp and the Thermapen. Here's a Thermoworks-produced video comparing, among other things, the ProTemp and the Thermapen: http://bit.ly/9Jl77N.

    Thanks for the link, Tim.
    It's good to get different points of view. I love my thermapen for comps, but wouldn't mind having the Maverick for home stuff...
    Welcome to the Joint!
    I hope you can stay for a while and maybe make an intro post. There are lots of Thermapen users here.

    Brian,
    Thanks for the welcome. We love this forum and have been reading it for some time now. We know there are other good products out there, we're just passionate about our own and want to be a part of the conversation. What do you recommend as far as an "intro post"?
