What reviewers liked

You can confidently prepare your meats, deep-fried foods, baked goods, candy, and any food and hot beverage perfectly all the time! The probes made of food grade stainless steel are also coated with an antibacterial agent to protect against the growth of foodborne bacteria.
The probe retracts and the large loop and internal magnet make it easy to store.
Overall, the Kizen digital thermometer has set the standard for a quality meat thermometer, and a very high standard at that. No other thermometer compares in speed, accuracy, or durability.
The bright LCD light helps you to have a quick and easy temperature read, which is a lot convenient, especially in the dark.
Two to three seconds is all it takes to read the temperature of the meat. The temperature shows a difference of only +/-1°F, making it very accurate.
Turns on automatically when you open it up and I like the fact that you can bend this wireless meat thermometer all the way around.
The average instant read thermometer takes around 8 seconds for a readout. Not exactly instant. Kizen, on the other hand, has a read time of 2-3 seconds. It is also accurate to +/-1 degrees and has a temperature range of -58 °F to 572 °F.
Excellent temperature range (-58 degrees to 572 degrees Fahrenheit, or -50 to 300 degrees Celsius). Waterproof for easy cleaning and no worries about mishaps.
These thermometers are operated by chargeable batteries and also has a LED screen which shows the measurements.

What reviewers didn't like

Can’t be used to read internal oven temperature
The only thing that bothers me is changing the batteries. You need to insert them again and again to make sure they don’t fall out.
Wearing a glove makes it difficult to press the Hold button.
If you happen to be left handed, using the Kizen can be a bit tricky. The display is more optimal for right handed use.
Loop is a little large; it makes it easy to pull from a pocket or drawer but harder to hang anywhere.
