Brother max in the box as it will look if you order it

Brother Max One Touch 3-in-1 Digital Thermometer

This shows the Brother max thermometer in 'room temperature' mode. It is attached to its base unit and is standing vertically. The temperature reading is 20 degrees Celsius which is clearly displayed on the lcd screenI bought the Brother Max One Touch 3-in-1 Digital Thermometer as I wanted an accurate, reliable, easy to use ear thermometer. The fact that it read the room temperature was more of a bonus than a necessity, I already owned the gro-egg room thermometer which I was perfectly happy with. I loved the fact that you don’t need probe covers, you can simply wipe it with a wet wipe. It is quite stylish and takes aaa batteries which are much easier to get hold of locally than cell batteries. I would place this in my baby’s Moses basket before dressing her for bed and leave it on through the night so I could check it whenever she woke up for a feed. The room temperature readings seemed accurate and I was happy with my purchase. What I don’t like about the room temperature function is that whenever it detects a change in temperature it beeps and lights up. As you will know, this is the last thing you want when your baby is sleeping soundly in her Moses basket. The thing that I am concerned about, as are lots of other people judging by the product reviews, is the accuracy of the body temperature readings. There have been a few occasions where my children have felt hot to me but the thermometer has given a “normal” reading, or it has given one high reading shortly followed by a normal reading. I have a feeling that there is a knack to using this thermometer to enable accurate results, I have tweeted brother max regarding this and am awaiting there response. I truly don’t believe that a product that wins awards and is recommended by a media medic celebrity could be truly inaccurate, particularly as the room temperature always seemed fine (when compared to my gro-egg). Brother Max- if you are reading this I will post your response here. I look forward to your reply.

The only reply I had was to refer to the operating instructions. Please read the customer reviews before buying this product
