About The Lumsing Wireless Thermometer:

This thermometer is actually quite unique. You can opt for the one-probe or two-probe versions but we recommend you go for the 2-probe, it doesn’t cost much more and is very convenient. It will allow you to monitor the temperature of your food as well as your grill.

Better yet, it has a lifetime limited warranty with every unit sold. The company is very confident about its durability so you will not have to be concerned about it breaking or burning out.
The downside, the probes only go as high as 482°F even though you certainly do not want your food reaching that high a temperature. It does have limitations regarding how you can use it to measure your grill or oven temperature. It is recommended that you move the probes away from the heating area before you start broiling or searing. By all other aspects, this is a great thermometer.
The interface is very easy to use even if you choose to carry your phone around for cooking. This might not be your choice if you are serious about cooking.

The probes cannot withstand high temperatures.
Maverick ET-732 Remote BBQ Smoker Thermometer:
The Maverick ET-732 is a two-probe wireless meat thermometer for your smoker to monitor barbecue and food temperatures. It also comes with its own receiver. The probes simply plug into the transmitter that sends the data to the receiver up to 300 feet away.
You get two probes, one is straight and short to measure the temperature of the barbecue and the other is shaped like an “L” with a sharp point which inserts into the food. The transmitter has two inputs that are labeled for each probe. Some customers believe the cables are too short.
The display has a transmitter that will show the probe’s temperature in alternating patterns. The temperatures are in Fahrenheit or Celsius which can be selected on the back of the transmitter.
The displays on the receiver come in two modes, the thermometer mode displays the temperature of each probe or the food probe that can be set to alert you when a given temperature is reached. The BBQ probe has an upper and lower limit that will send off an alarm if the temperature goes beyond the limits.
You can set the temperature limits by pressing the light/mode button to lock it in place. If this is not done properly, it will go back to the previous settings. We found this just a little bit confusing.
The BBQ alarm will not go off until the temperature rises above the lower limit so you don’t have to listen to beeping as the unit warms up. For some reason, if the thermometer and the receiver lose communication, you will get an audible and visual alarm letting you know what happened.
You set the timer mode that counts down until it reaches zero. At that time, an alarm will sound than the timer will start counting upward. The timer can also be set as an up-counter by setting the initial time to zero. The timer’s alarm sound is very different from the temperature alarm and can be set simultaneously.
This remote thermometer is one of the most popular on the market to date. The thermometer is very well made and the transmitter is water-resistant. If you simply following the instructions, it’s very easy to use.
It’s very well made and comes with a receiver
The thermometer alerts you if communication fails.
The cables seem to be too short.
It can be difficult to program.
