Interesting, would have pulled the trigger but Costco says "This product is unavailable for delivery in XXX XXX. Enter a different delivery postal code to check for item availability." Oh well, thanks for the share nonetheless!

Can i use this on food? What about on an infant? Or the floor to detect cold spots in the winter?

For food you'll get the outside temperature of something but the inside temp usually isn't the same so I wouldn't say it's reliable for that. You could use it to check oil, water, or pan/pot temperature though. For an infant, these things usually emit a little red laser do so as long as you make sure you shield their eyes you should be ok. As for cold spots, I guess it could work for wall surface and such.

This is a surface thermometer so it gives you the temperature of the surface you point it at.

According to the Amazon page, you need to take readings from 1-5cm away from the surface.

I was thinking about this to check the temp of my Ooni pizza oven stone, but it would be like Raiders if I got my hand and the thermometer close enough to the 900+ degree stone.

Thanks OP. Just as an FYI, bought one of these from Costco to use as a thermometer to monitor our kids' fevers (when they crop up). Do not recommend for this purpose as the readings were wildly inaccurate. We ended up buying an in-ear thermometer instead.

Might be fine for food, water temperature, etc.

I picked up a similar looking one off Amazon a year ago, it seemed accurate when checking my normal temperature (compared to a regular thermometer), but when I had a fever the temperature showed lower than a regular thermometer. Mine had two modes, person and object.

You can only confirm whether this is accurate if you test someone who has a fever.

I ordered one - Staples has same model at $51.99 with 31 reviews and a rating of 4.4 so hopefully will work ok.

I got the same one at Costco store for $9.97 a couple months ago, the one I got on the box stating that "Non Medical Use", so do not expect a high accuracy from it, if you just want an approximate temperature, it works well, the measuring range is 32 to 42.9 Celsius degrees.

This says approved by Health Canada? Did yours say the same?
