The product I ordered did not meet the specifications I was looking for EXACTLY, but the process and application were adequate for the results needed. After receiving the product, I questioned what I had received vs what I was expecting (The temperature gauge is 0-425 degrees but there is no information on the gauge to know even a ballpark of what you are setting the temperature to, so a little guess work involved) and although the issue could not be resolved with information or a different product, the specialist that assisted me (Amy Swinehamer) was very nice and provided clear informative information, which I greatly appreciated.

I haven't received it yet but I have purchased one in the past and it works as expected. I have another one that was put to use approximately 6-7 years ago and it too is working very well to this day.
