      Poorly made

      I bought one of these several years ago and had to return it, last year, because the grips had degraded.  They were sticky(!), like adhesive -- can you believe that!

      After some strong convincing -- it's only guaranteed for a year -- the manager replaced it for me.  Now, it's been a little over a year and I went to use it and all the temperatures it reads -- just around the house -- are over a hundred degrees!!  (And, it's late fall here in the northeast; temps in my house are in the 60s.)

      To add insult to injury, when I bought it it cost in the neighborhood of $80; now they're trying to peddle it for half that.  In my opinion, it's junk and might be worth $10; at least at that price you wouldn't expect much.  (And, btw, when I brought it back this time they refused to replace it for me.)

      Good instrument with fair price

      I had one other infrared thermometer (non Craftsman) before buying this one. This Craftsman unit has a higher temperature rating (500 F) and better distance to ****** ratio (6:1). My old unit is 1:1. That means this unit can measure temperature of an object at a farther distance than my old one. I got it on sale for about half the regular price. Very happy with it.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Works good

      Not as fancy as some higher end models but works great for the price. I had a cheaper model from another store and the temp range was too small. This one works much better.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Handy in the garage, useful in the Kitchen

      Oddball thought: Imagine if budding cooks/chefs 1st learning to cook had this nearby as they followed cooking directions while using un-familiar knobs and their value-less settings. How hot is Med-High? Is Med-High at this house/stove/etc just like my last one? Buy it for the garage, keep it in the Kitchen! In-store pickup for online purchases was the one time-wasting flaw. Too bad the staff and manager's in my local store barely deserve employment, let alone a title and responsibility to find and effect quick and meaningful solutions. Sears is headed to the grave someday soon if this keeps up. It's a sad state to see.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Simple, Works, and does the job.

      This is a very straightforward infrared thermometer. The three buttons control the units (C or F), choosing to display a min or a max, and turning on/off the laser and back-light. The temperatures seem to plenty accurate for a low cost item. One issue, at the time of writing this, the product description states that it comes with a 9V battery and a case. Neither is true. It comes with the Thermometer only.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Sticky Handle

      This started out great and I took great care of it. The handle rubber degraded after a year and became very sticky to the touch. I contact customer service and they refused to replace because it was just over a year. I am not happy sears will not stand behind their product with their name on it. Poor customer service!

      Xmas Gift

      Got this for a gift. Great price compared to brands carried by the tool trucks. Would recommend this to weekend mechanics. Definitely worth waiting for the 19.99 sale price through Craftsman Club and SYWR!
