Nanny’s Choice Home or School Infrared Medical Thermometer

Screen Shot 2014-12-01 at 4.59.07 PMI have used the “regular” mercury body temperature thermometers for years, and even though some of them offer digital reading of the temperature, the basic technology behind them has not substantially changed in centuries. (Almost three hundred years, to be more precise.) Which means, they are still as inconvenient to use as ever. This may not be such a big issue when it is an adult who uses them, but when you have a sick wiggly toddler then chances of getting a quick and easy reading become minimal to none.

Prior to this thermometer I’ve owned a small in-ear infrared thermometer. That one was not very reliable, it was finicky to operate, and not that much more convenient than a contact thermometer. So I was a bit skeptical about this Nanny’s choice thermometer. However, all of my misgivings were misplaced. Nanny’s Choice thermometer is extremely easy to use. You just press the button once to turn it on, aim at the person whose temperature you are measuring, and then press the button again. The measurement process is extremely quick. So far all the measurements I’ve made have also been extremely accurate. I’ve compared them to the contact thermometer where I had the chance and they all agreed. The thermometer has been a great boon to someone like me with small children at home. Now I can have a lot of assurance that if they get sick I can quickly and accurately monitor their fever.

This thermometer can easily switch between Fahrenheit and Centigrade with a press of a button. It also features room temperature measurement and surface measurement modes. However, if the temperature is too high, or too low, it will not provide you with a measurement. So sorry, you won’t be able to find out how hot your stove is.

The thermometer is very nicely built and sits very comfortably in hand. It also comes with a nice storage/carrying case.

This thermometer has certainly exceeded my expectation. It is a great and inexpensive infrared thermometer. I highly recommend it.
