Compost Thermometer is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 15.

When I wrote that review, I had owned the product for about a month. Now, one month later, I wish to revise my review and rating. Last week, the head of the thermometer completely detached from the stem/body leaving only the slight filament of the temperature sensing part. When I examined the break, I saw that the material was very cheap and upon reflection, could not be expected to withstand even normal use in a compost pile. It is a fine thermometer if you intend to use it in water. If the material presents any resistance, it will break if nothing else from just one's hand regularly pulling on it. If you are a serious composter, and don't want an imposter-thermometer, spend a little money and also get a clamp. Johnny's Seeds has a good product. I would like to get my money back. We'll see.

Compost Thermometer was ordered online (Home Depot) but, was picked up at my nearest Home Depot store. It was unpacked at the store, I made sure it isn't bent but, when got home pushed it into compost and the needle moved counterclockwise- it can not be! A good thermometer would move clockwise to the temperature it displays not counterclockwise! I'm not taking it to Home Depot because they'he told me "we do not replace or refund". I think this is bad customer service, all I can say about this purchase. Don't buy this product or any other on their website - Home Depot's.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seemed to work, but reading was incorrect Picked it up at store. Took it out of box at home, in room temperature (68 degrees) it was reading 180 degrees. Left it outside in about 25 degree weather, it read about 145 degrees. It seemed to be working properly, but the reading was inaccurate, apparently because the dial scale was not oriented properly. Returned it to store and asked that a replacement be shipped to my home. Said that I did not want to pay shipping for the replacement. Store personnel (politely) said they could not waive the shipping charge. But, they called homedepot.com; rep waived shipping charge, no problem.

Having the Compost Thermometer has proven very helpful in managing the many composters that I manage. Typically the temperature of the composter will rise until it reaches 140 to 160 F. Then, as the compost nears completion the temperature will slowly drop. When it is back below 90 I know that the process is nearly complete and the compost is ready for sifting and adding to the various gardens.

I have found this thermometer to be very fast, accurate and durable in its first season of use in my composting bins. Remember, it is the temperature at the tip which is measured. I do wish they offered a clamp-handle which would reduce the wear from yanking it out of solid or even frozen compost.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for less than a month. Ordered two; put both in compost pile and they read reasonably the same T and seemed to work for about a week or two. Left in the pile during freezing weather, and both topped out at the MAXIMUM and have not come down. Very disappointed in these; a waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke upon first use. The first day i took it home and put it in the compost pile...worked like a charm. Pulled it out of the first 2 piles just fine... pulled it out of the third pile and the head broke off....very poor quality or a defective unit.
