Not lasting


Stopped indicating accurate temperature after 2 years, has been indicating 34-35C for two years now, even when my son has 38.5C of temperature. UNSAFE. I called them to get it replaced and they said it was outside the warranty period. They offered to look at it if I had the receipt, but 3.5 years later, I don't. Do not buy!

Inaccurate, unsafe, unreliable, expensive, bad customer service.

waste of money


dose not work have tried to cheak my sons temp one ear reads different to the other when i do they one after the other i would not recommend this to any one i thought it would b gret quick and easy but really it a waste of money also it read 0F not 0C stupid as i cant change it back



very inaccurate took childs temp 3 times in less than a minute and it gave 3 totally different readings ranging from 36.5 to 38.2 took my child to doctor and his temp was 39.6!huge difference between 36 and almost 40:(,, this product is unreliable and wasteof money! looking for a new product just bought a $10 under arm for now and much more accurate and consistance with readings than the $80 product,

inaccurate and inconsistent

Terrible. Accuracy = zero


What a waste of money. This thermometer is so inaccurate you have no idea what your child's temperature is. I'm writing this review while I search for an alternative. Do not buy. I think it is strange that Target is stocking such a terrible product - i wish i still had the receipt as I would return it even if I did buy it over a year ago!!

Inaccurate. Expensive.

fully agreed, i am contacting IGC Dorel at the moment.
i bought mine at Target too and never have had a consistent reading from it yet. What a huge waste of $80



Slightly Rubbish


As others have said this is an inaccurate product, we also somehow changed it to F and after a long search for the manual online found it here.

I would suggest a thermometer above the $100 Australian Dollar mark as we have purchased two thermometers under the 100 dollar mark and have found them to be sub-standard.

low value, inaccurate

Would not buy this thermometre again. Very expensive for something so rubbish. I will be buying another thermometre because I just don't trust it.
Easy to use, no need to buy shields.
Not very accurate!! Temps vary wildly.





Total junk. Reads an average 3 degrees cooler than the one our Dr uses. It was telling us our babies temp was 36.5 and a visit to the Dr 1 hr later confirmed his temp at 39.
Easy to use.
Widely inaccurate.

Looked good and like it would be easy to use. It is a bit tricky to use I find and I'm also not too sure if it's accurate. I check babies temp before I got to docs and it seems to be out by 0.5 degrees celsius. I don't know but that just makes me feel a bit uneasy as to the accuracy (although maybe babies temp changes by the time I go to docs). It's quite pricey too, but in saying this I havent't tried any others either.
Looked easy to use
Price, a bit hard to use and not sure if accurate
