I owned a wireless Maverick unit for about 2 years. I went through six probes on it, of which only 2 where damaged due to me either getting it too hot or got the cord pinched in the oven door. The wireless feature was ok, but for the most part it is unneeded as you just set the temp alarm for the temperature you want it to cook to (or atleast when you want it to give you a heads up to check on it). After the 3rd time calling Maverick about their junk probes, my wife got me this unit: Polder Themometer I have had it for about 2.5 years now and I am still on the original probe, even after using it over 400F, it just showed it was high and once the temp came back down, it functioned just like new. The cord does not pinch as it has a good jacket on it, and the biggest plus, it is super cheap. Personally, I wouldn't even use the maverick if it fell in my lap after using the polder unit.

I agree about the probes SUCKING...they die pretty easily. I have an older model (same wireless smoker/meat combo) and the smoker probe died within the first 6 months. Also the range was pretty sucky, but these look like they have bigger antennas then the original.
Maybe the newer versions are better?

I have this version and have been very pleased so far. Good temp and wireless range. I carefully wrapped the probes in foil, especially the seam between the probe and cord, and have had no issues so far.

I have this, and I have had no issues with it. It take a lot of hassle out of doing BBQ.

this is a lot better than the previous model. I own both, and have been using the 732 for a couple of years now.
I beat the crap out of mine, and it's been rock solid. I did have a probe failure, but it was my fault (plug in end dropped into a load of burning charcoal)
You will NOT find a better wireless pit/food thermo for less than the cost of this one.
Awesome unit at a great price. I have been using this model for a couple years, which replaced the previous Maverick wireless model before that. This newer unit is much improved over the old unit. I haven't had a single complaint about mine and use it quite a bit. Overnight smokes are a breeze with one of these, set the probes/alarms and go to bed.
