To be fair I've only used this about 5 times. I will list what I have noticed so far with this device. It wants to bluetooth connect to my iPhone 5 rather than my iPad 3 or iPad mini. While searching for the bluetooth device on the iPads it takes longer than usual or can't seem to find it. Making a connection with the iPhone 5 is quick and easy so I mostly used this on my iPhone 5.
While using the device and grilling away my iPhone will go to sleep and when you reopen it to the app the current temperature and cooking setting disappears. I'd have to force quit the app and reopen it and it would reappear. I solved this issue by keeping my phone from going to sleep by changing it from 1 min to never.
I wish the meat settings would be more detailed. For steaks I would like it to have options for London broil, t-bone, etc. not just beef.
For the issues mentioned above. Im sure a software fix should solve these problems. Also please note, this device is made of plastic. Keep it away from the grill or your going to have an iMelted iGrill. Just make sure you keep it on a part of the bbq that wont melt or a table next to it. Would I recommend this product? Yes. Just make sure you read other users comments too.
Its a great little device, personally I think it should come with the ambient probe and a meat thermometer, not the two meat thermometers. I think it would be a lot handier. Also what this device really needs is the ability to plug it into an outlet and not run off of batteries. I use my igrill device for long slow cooks on my smoker and having to change batteries frequently is sort of an annoyance. It could be a real great device if it wasn't for the issue that it only works off of batteries.
I mostly love this product....It has a great interface and allows me to do prep work while not hovering over the bbq HOWEVER as some other reviewers have mentioned I have trouble maintaining bluetooth connections and am having to take the batteries out far too often.
This needs to be ironed out before I can fully endorse this product.
