love it ...works great...
Bought this because of the good luck we've had with all Rutland products for the wood stove but unfortunately this thermometer does not work. After a massively hot fire, it finally moved up to 200 degrees -- which tells me that it does not work. The other thermometer we had before would have read anywhere from 350-400 degrees for this type of fire. Northline was great about refunding my money, although I am out $10 in shipping. :( Will buy something local.
Moderator comment: Jayme, please contact us by email and I will take care of the $10. for your trouble. I suspect you just got a bad one since we haven't hear of any other troubles and have been selling Rutland thermometers for over 10 years....Robert
I purchased this on the recommendation of the other reviews and the great luck we've experienced with other Rutland products. However, we found out that this thermometer will not move off 100 degrees and it doesn't matter where it's placed. We placed it on the woodburner itself and it STILL wouldn't move off 100 degrees. I am sending this back and getting something different.
It sounds like the needle may be disconnected from the spring. You can check the back and see if it's connected or simply call our Customer Service department at 866-667-8454 to request an exchange or refund.
Works well. Fast shipping.
Its all you need. The Creosote Range reading is accurate as the front glass gets black. The Burn Range is on the spot when the carbon off the glass dissappears. The over burn is key for monitoring high temps and prolonging the life of your burner. Pay the extra its all you will ever need for monitoring the optimal compfort and effecicent burn.

This stove thermomter removes some guess work. I transfer it to my Weber for cooking.

We really like the size of the thermometer and the ease of reading the temperature and whether or not the fire is in the proper burn range.
We had seen the thermometer being used on a wood stove where we went to see about having our stovepipe replaced after having a chimney fire. Unfortunately, the store no longer carried that item.
After much searching on the Internet, we found your site.
We are very pleased with it.
