Anybody have an opinion on how well this cheaper model works?

I've never seen a Polder over $30. And looking at their catalog
confirms that (29.99 for a dual probe).

Perhaps you're thinking of Thermapen.

Am sold on Thermapens now. Got the first one 4 years ago or so,
finally replaced the first battery just recently and yesterday,
stupidly set it down on the firebox. ( it's a flat spot I use a lot
when grilling, so bad habit )
Well, didn't notice my mistake for mebbe 30 seconds and melted plastic
was left behind. Once the thing cooled back down it worked fine again.

But shit, for $20 this Polder looks great. They've got a decent
reputation, so go for it. let out your inner proctologist and probe
your meat.

I thought about it too, but they are our of stock.

Amazon has them for $17.00 though, potentially free shipping if you
order $25 or more.
