Q:Can it be left in the compost year round?
by|Nov 19, 2018

Answer This Question

A:  I would not recommend leaving the thermometer in the composter all year. I keep mine safe inside and only put it in the compost when I want to know the temperature. I advise taking the temperature in several locations in the compost (middle and near the edges. There will be a range of temperature readings. It is a valuable tool in doing Hot Composting and worth taking care of.

                        This is not an exhaustive review. 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.

                        Does everything it should do.
                        This compost thermometer does exactly what it's supposed to do. I handle it by the probe only, not the dial, and I'm sure it will hold up for many years this way.

                        Compost thermometer
                        Not happy. Needle was all the to right against the peg. Was planning on returning as faulty. When I grabbed it to return it the needle was at proper temperature so I used it on compost pile and it worked fine. Three weeks later its not working again. It looks nice as a shiny ornament hanging in my garden shed. Bought a meat thermometer for a quarter of the cost which works great.

                        Not very accurate to begin with, and then within two months it stopped working. Very frustrating.

                          Broke apart after 2 days of use, the needle came completely uncalibrated (actually was sitting at rest beyond it’s designed resting spot which is held in place by a small pin, it came in the box literally sitting off the pin and unable to be put back over the pin.) Garbage product

                          It would be better if it were 30” long instead of 19.
