Do you want to monitor the temperature of your 5 or 10 gallon
Igloo or Rubbermaid (and Home Depot) cooler while you are mashing or
storing sparge water? The Coolview™ thermometer from Brewer's Edge®,
features a cooler-specific 100° to 200° F. Range, and a sliding red
reference pointer so you can set it at mash or sparge water
temperature. The 2" dial features a calibration nut for fine tuning the
temperature if desired, as well as a unique 1 3/4" long threaded
stainless barrel that is 5/16" thick, so it can be installed in thick
cooler walls by just drilling a 5/16" hole. Click on the More Info link
above to see a photo of the back of this thermometer.
To prevent leaks into the cooler wall foam insulation, a
specially designed mounting nut features a machined recess to hold a
small silicone O ring. This recess holds the O ring tight in the nut
when you tighten the backnut, preventing it from spreading and causing
leaks. A great aid if you have a cooler mashtun or sparge water tank.

Easy to install, had a small initial leak that was quickly and easily corrected. Seems to be very accurate. Nice, inexpensive addition to my rig that should improve my beer.
no problem installing it like it
Installed quickly in my cooler mash tun. I get much more consistent readings than a glass thermometer and I don't have to open the lid and let the heat out to check. I wish I had bought this a long time ago.
Very clear instructions and easy to install. Came correctly calibrated.
does not work as advertised. Constantly out of calibration, by 10+ degrees. Junk. You've been warned. I've calibrated this thing 3 times now with multiple thermometers and still 10 degrees off.
