Maverick ET-733 Review
Even though this model may not be as quick in measuring and displaying temperature as other digital thermometers, the results it provides are still very accurate. The doneness level of the meal you are cooking is determined through the built-in temperature presets.
One of the best features of Maverick ET-733 is that you do not need to be standing right beside the grill to get the temperature reading. The thermometer is equipped with two grill clips and two probes. It also consists of a receiver and transmitter that is used to send and display the temperature readings. The transmitter can be carried along with you while you are away from the grill, it will keep providing you with the live temperature of the meat. You can even get the temperature reading of your meal while standing as far as three hundred feet.
Since the BBQ thermometer(BBQ thermometer reviews) comes with two probes you can check the temperature of your grill and meal at the same time. Furthermore, the thermometer also consists of an alarm that goes off once your meal reaches the required temperature.

The thermometer can be difficult to set up and utilize. You may need help from the manual on how to use to the receiver and its multiple menus before you get a hold of it. On the other hand, the alarms can also be critical to set up as compared to other thermometers.
With a response time of 24.5 seconds it can be stated that this thermometer does not provide quick results as compared to other thermometers. The 7-inches probes can pick up the temperature reading from 32 to 572 degrees Fahrenheit.
A lot of digital thermometers come with a feature of automatic shut off. However, you do not get this feature in this model. Since you have to handle the transmitter and receiver separately; there is a chance that you might forget to turn off one of them. An auto shutoff would’ve been an easy solution to this problem.
Another problem with this model is that you need to have a small Phillips screw driver that fits the screw size of the battery box of the thermometer. You can’t open this compartment with a big screw driver, thus you won’t be able to replace the batteries if you don’t have access to a smaller one.
The 90-day battery is also not very impressive, since many other brands usually offer a fairly longer warranty time than this. In case, you encounter any complications or difficulties using the thermometer you can contact customers telephone and email support.
