Just press it for 2 seconds, it’ll start, press for another 3 seconds (5 secs in total), it’ll give the reading in Celsius, hold on for 2 more seconds, (7 in total) and the reading is in Fahrenheit. That solved my frustration of converting the Celsius into Fahrenheit.

The tip of the machine is quite easy to clean and sturdy too.

The Best Digital Thermometers is mc-246 omron

A thermometer is an instrument that is used to measure the body temperature of a person, an animal, or an object. Usually, thermometers come with three basic abilities which are to gauge the temperature, display the results on a screen, and convert these results to whatever measurement unit you choose.

Why Should You Have a Thermometer?

Thermometers are not only to be found in hospitals and clinics. Ideally, everyone should own a thermometer, and here are some reasons:

Regular Body Temperature Measurement

A high or low body temperature is a sign that you are falling ill, and to confirm what your temperature levels are, you need a thermometer. It is said that body temperature should be taken twice a day to ensure that all is fine iwith your health. This check is more important with babies or little kids who can’t say when they feel ill, and can only be achieved with a thermometer.

Accurate Measurement

It is common practice to touch your hand to your forehead or neck to tell if you have a temperature, and while this is a good way of knowing if you are running hot or cold, it isn’t a very effective method because it does not give an exact measurement. For this reason, it cannot be relied upon and you need a thermometer to get accurate results.

They are Stress-Free

Owning a thermometer eases you of the worry, stress, and financial strain that comes with having to go to see the doctor every single time you feel a fever.

What are the Types of Digital Thermometers?

There are several different types of thermometers, all performing the same functions in different ways. Generally, thermometers that do not make use of mercury are considered as digital thermometers, and here are the three most popular:

Digital Thermometers

These thermometers are easy to use, quick, accurate, and safe. They are usually placed in the mouth, rectum, or armpit and left for a stipulated period of time to gauge body temperature. They come with digital displays that give readings in figures and numbers.

Digital Ear (tympanic) Thermometer

These thermometers carry out temperature measurements inside of the ear canal through infrared technology. They are great because they provide accurate results in a very short time but are not advisable for kids below 6 months because of the size of their ear canals.

Infrared Thermometer

These make use of infrared rays to gauge temperatures. Most of the ones that fall under this category are non-contact and this makes them suitable for use in large crowds and when observing social distancing protocols.

What Should You Look Out for When Getting A Digital Thermometer? Accuracy

This is literally the most important thing to look out for when shopping for a thermometer. Ensure that you go for one that gives you a precise reading of your temperature, as this helps you to know if there are any abnormalities in your body temperature.

What is the User’s Age Range?

It is important to know what age you are getting a thermometer for and get one that suits you best. While there are thermometers that can be used for all ages, there are ones that were specifically made for particular age ranges and it is generally advisable to shop for the latter. For example, get a pacifier thermometer for your infant rather than one that goes in the ear or mouth.

What are the Measurement Units?

What temperature measurement unit are you most familiar and comfortable with? It is advisable that you get a thermometer that displays readings in that unit, or better still, one that can display in multiple units.

Speed of Response

While purchasing a thermometer, go for one that can take measurements and display results in a short time. This is especially important with infants or kids who do not have a lot of patience and cannot keep still for a long period of time.


It is best to get a thermometer that has the memory feature to give you a chance to compare your previous readings and record any improvements.

How Much do Digital Thermometers Cost?

A thermometer is a pretty affordable piece of equipment, and you do not require a lot of cash before owning one. Usually, the prices vary based on type and features, but here is a general price quote that should guide you in making a budget. One thing to note however is that because thermometers are very delicate and health-related, it is best to go for quality and function over price.


Thermometers in this category go for any price within $5-$20. At this price, you should be sure to get a digital thermometer that goes in the armpit, mouth or rectum.


Thermometers in this category cost between $20-$35. Most of the thermometers in this category are infrared and non-contact.


This category contains thermometers that cost between $35-$50. They are usually of high quality, durable, and very efficient.

FAQs Q: How long would my thermometer last?

Ideally, your thermometer is meant to last for anywhere between 5 and 7 years, but this largely depends on the conditions under which it is used and kept.

Q: What are the disadvantages of digital thermometers?

The main disadvantages of digital thermometers is that they are prone to getting damaged when dropped, and are battery-powered, meaning that as soon as their batteries power down, they stop working.

How long should I leave a digital thermometer under my tongue?

  1. Ideally, the thermometer should be left for about 40 seconds beneath your tongue, during which time the degree would be rising. However, this time could be more or less depending on what brand you are using and the stipulated time in the guide.
