Is the ambient temperature in my oven still able to be measured when my food is covered in the ?

There are two sensors, one that measures the ambient temperature and one that measures the meat temperature.

Is the app available within a certain range?

My phone app has worked even after I walked into my house from over 30 feet away after several hours of cooking. Although I haven't tested the full range, I am sure it is a good one.

You're required to enter a pin code in the app. It does not come with a pin code in the instructions or on the device. 0000 and 1234 are the defaults. The pin is on the top, what's it for?

Warranty claims are not being responded to by the manufacturer and probes are garbage
3/5

The following is up to date as of In an attempt to reach the company again, I have tried calling them. Despite continuing to get ignored, I never get a response. I am currently left with only two options to buy a new probe for this product, or to throw it out. I am saddened that it is not working because we had great success with the Bluetooth part and the app. It seems almost absurd to spend $18+tax on yet another probe, when the quality of the probes is at best subpar. Due to the company's practices of ignoring customers, I am unable to recommend this product at this time. The following information was updated on January 13th, 2021 In the past, I have attempted to contact the manufacturer regarding the faulty probe and submit a warranty claim. We have not heard back from them for over two months. Because it is obvious the company does not stand by their product, I am reluctant to Review of the original
Thus, I purchased one of these Lavatools Carbon Lite smart thermometers in an attempt to cook steaks and other meats to perfection with it. Early September 2020, after 6 uses on the grill, this turned out to be a broken item. I purchased it in July Since then, it has been sitting in a drawer. At the rate at which it is currently cooking, the app is fairly easy to use, and it does give you insight into how long it will take for the food to cook. As long as you have a good line of sight between the mobile device and the thermometer, the Bluetooth range is decent. You will lose connectivity if you walk too far away from the thermometer or have a big obstruction in between the thermometer and your phone. Occasionally, reconnecting does not happen automatically, so you may need to restart the app and begin tracking your cooking session once again. While the probe has lasted just six times on the grill at medium temperature, it has completely failed. The probe no longer measures the temperature correctly and is stuck at 572F, meaning that the sensor in the bottom of the probe measures the temperature of food and the sensor on the top of the probe measures the temperature of the ambient air in the grill or When you twist the probe a bit, you can see temperature fluctuating for a second before returning It is obvious that the investigation has been completed, and that is exceedingly Other than that, the device seems to work fine. All I need is a replacement probe. I won't be able to leave it on the grill over the risk of destroying it so that it becomes completely useless for what it is meant A useful feature of this product is that it stays inside the food being cooked, so you can make an estimate of how long it will take it to cook it to the desired When I try to use it as an instant thermometer it is simply a nuisance, and any standard digital stick thermometer will complete the task of giving me an instant reading faster and more accurately. I've already passed the return window with Amazon, so I will speak with the manufacturer to see if I can get a replacement probe at least. Having tried it only a couple of times, I am quite disappointed that it failed. Perhaps I'll pick up one of their standard thermometers next and get rid of this "smart" unit that either has quality control issues with the probes, or is simply a duff. Not recommended.

It's a bad choice. If you are going to rely on this, you would be better off with an instant-read thermometer and monitoring your cooking frequently instead. As a result of it, I only lost one large tri tip plus the purchase price of this Carbon Lite unit, so in all I've lost.

The product was excellent and the quality was good for the price
5/5

This is very popular with my husband! The old one melted a couple of years ago, so I gave him the new one as a birthday present. "high-temp" silicone bundles. ) The new one is made from I like it a lot. In addition to smokin' steaks daily, he goes through a lot of cigarettes It was thrilling to get this for a tech nerd like him. The system is very well designed and works extremely well The translation provided by the author is extremely The process worked so well that he was very excited. It was particularly appealing to him that it turns red, yellow or green depending on how far along in the cooking process it is, and also that it measures not only the temperature of the meat but also the temperature within the smoker or BBQ. The price is reasonable, so it's a good purchase. There's one snag according to the reviews, Android users sometimes have trouble connecting to the app because it's geared towards Apple (spoiler). He wasn't able to connect to the first one he received- The item was returned and I am working on it I had issues with the previous one, but it worked with the next one. So if it doesn't work for you, try another one. Thankfully, Amazon is accommodating. This is the one I will continue to use.

It's just fine
3/5

'1) The external temp appears to be enormously With 2 analog thermometers they both show around 250 degrees, while the Carbon Lite reads 330 degrees. This is a big difference but not a deal breaker for me. I'll just rely on the built-in analogue dial. 1) The internal temperature appears to be accurate, which is an important element. *Number 3) Bluetooth distance does not exceed The connection drops around 40 to 50% even in my backyard where there is a direct line of sight There is a 50-foot distance between them. 4) It works well, but you always need to carry your phone in your hand to check the temperature. I think a digital temperature probe will be more accurate. In summary, the product is adequate, but digital temperature probes are.

It is very useful to have grill tools like this
5/5

The charger attached to my Samsung Note 10 quickly and easily. It is extremely useful to have dual thermocouples to find out the temperature of the grill and meat. It has been more than a week since I've made burgers, and it no longer leaves me wondering when I'll be done. Turning it on and off is easy. It clearly shows what it does. You can use the carbon mobile app for free. This new blinking pattern might be a sign that my batteries are running low, so I'll change them soon. It is convenient to have a magnetic back. The product is very well thought out and I am more than happy to purchase it I typically use this at a range of 25'.

Our favorite part of something when it works is when it works well
4/5

Our next purchase will not be this one. It is great to have monitoring both the smoker temperature and the temperature of the meat of the meat when it is working while smoking. The system has a number of disadvantages, however, such as being a giant pain to set up. The simplest thing you can do is get the app to talk to the monitor. I mean by an event that it takes 20 minutes to complete The following are 30 minute estimates. When the cable is popped out a little, it falls back into place. In order to prevent this, I had to rig the system. Hopefully it will work next time. This means you have the target temperature set and the temperature of the meat set, but not the temperature of the smoker, which is crucial for the smoking process. It is the cable and the plug that are causing a You might want to buy something else if the difference is that large. In terms of distance, our house is only 30 feet from where our smoker sits. It could be a problem for the signal if it's inside the house by another 10 feet. This probe or monitor appears to be having problems. I hope it is only this probe or are still looking for a way to do this, but let's hope it works more efficiently.

3/5

Customer service at the manufacturer was emailed (only contact method I could find on their website no phone number was found) and no reply was received Don't buy it, spend your money on.

This is an extremely intuitive program
5/5

My thermometer arrived exactly before Thanksgiving, I was not an expert when it came to cooking turkey, and it really made a big difference. I was able to use the app to see how the temperature was changing over time and see how long it would take to get to the desired temperature. It is very easy to use, has many options depending on which type of meat you are searching for, and is intuitive. Having used it on both the oven and grill, I found the "Done" warning to be very helpful when I'm grilling, I don't have to constantly keep an eye on the temperature. As a Christmas present, I will buy one for my brother.
