Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tim did not work
Great idea but didn't work. Plugged into garage outlet with temp at 48 F, opened garage door and allowed temp to drop to 20, heater attached to it did not kick on. Back to HD today to try something else.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by handyhack Bought 2, neither worked as advertised.
Now that it's getting cold here in Chicago, we decided to buy two for the garage. We've got a couple of pipe heaters that we'd like to turn on when the temp gets cold.
I tried both of them out as soon as I got home, the temperature of the garage is over 50 degrees, and both units were already on. I left them alone for a good 20 to 30 minutes to acclimate but that did not do anything. I tested the thermometer we have in the garage to make sure it's accurate and it was working just fine.
These are going right back to HD asap.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ripper only lasts one season
Mine only lasts one winter season. So every year if I want to keep the bird bath open, I have to buy new. CANT ANYONE MAKE SOMETHING TO LAST FOR AWHILE?
Sorry Thermocube, Going somewhere else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SKYPILOT Great energy saver
Works great though will not come on until the cube itself gets to 35 degrees or go off until the cube itself gets to 45 degrees. So if the cube is sitting on a cold can of peaches in the pantry, the cube may not shut off until the air temperature is 50-60 degrees. A Winter Minder - also sold by HD - gives you most flexibility but costs more and has only one outlet on it (though you can plug an outlet extension into it giving you several outlets. Don't exceed its load, however. "12-volt" in the description on March 13, 2014 is probably a typo for 120 volts.

I got this for plugging in a heated food dish for feral cats. It's very cold right now so I haven't been able to test the turning off feature. I am curious about the reviewer who didn't recommend putting the Thermocube on a can of peaches in a pantry. :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nehilow Works great!
This is as advertised. Cheap solution to forgetting to plug and unplug the heat lamp for our chickens. Would be suitable for a well pump as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FordDiesel Works as advertised
I used it one entire winter in Michigan to control the block heater in my diesel truck. I have a lighted plug end on the cord from the truck so I know when it is on. I check it everyday, even though I don't drive the truck daily. Unlike one of the other review, I do not check to see exactly what temperature it shuts off, but I can say that when it is in the forties, it is off.
I recommended to all my friends who own diesels. I went to pick one up for a friend this year and the store does not have them. I will tell him to buy online.
