I have a "Inferno" brand stove top thermometer that I assumed was accurate. Had some issues with the stove getting hotter than I would like, hit 800 on my wife the other night! Then after I gave her a hard time I had a few fires that seemed to get out of control also. I borrowed my father in laws infrared thermometer today and I was amazed at the difference. The stove top thermometer was 100 degrees high through the whole burn. Therefore the high temperatures I was experiencing were actually not that scary. Has anyone as seen such drastic differences? Does anyone know if infrared thermometers are accurate?
