Paterson PTP381 reviews

12" Color Thermometer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Customer Service My glass thermometer arrived in Australia perfectly protected in it's undamaged plastic protector only to be snapped in half within that protector. A contributing factor in the thermometer's damaged condition was the item itself was not individually wrapped but simply added to a large box with my order's accompanying 15 rolls of 35 mm film. Good news is customer service at B&H acted quickly, accepted my tale without proof of the thermometer's condition, told me a return was not required and posted me a replacement which is yet to arrive. Let's hope the replacement is better packaged and arrives not broken. If not, I'll have to request the refund option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic, a thermometer the way it shd be I previously bought the Dot Line 2 DLC Stainless Dial Thermometer to check the developer temp for b&W film development in a small tank. The Dot Line was OK, but was hard to read because the line on the dial that tells you the temp the needle is pointing to is right under the needle. So I was looking from one side and the other, trying to read under the needle. Also, every line is 2 degrees. One day I misread the temp, and though that was clearly operator error, I felt the Dot Line was not helping out, and I decided to try this one, and I am glad I did. It is instantly responsive and very easy to read in half-degree increments. If you grew up like me with mercury thermometers for body temp readings, reading this thermometer is instinctive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Accurate I bought this thermometer specifically to calibrate my dial thermometer which is very old. I haven't done any dark room work in 35 years and I suppose I should replace it soon. Although the markings or clear they are also small and my eyesight isn't what it used to be, I'm a senior. So I bought some very strong cheap glasses so I could see them. I'm fairly sure that someone with normal vision it will not be a problem. The plastic storage case seems sturdy enough to protect the thermometer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate Temp I double checked the temp with a infrared thermometer and it was spot on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best options if you need accuracy I use this for processing c-41 and e6 film as well as color printing with ra-4 chemicals. I have access to many other brands and types of thermometers but this is my tried and true thermometer. The size makes it easy to get accurate temperatures because the scale is much more spread out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality thermometer It's a pretty basic piece of equipment, but it works well, is a good length and it's rapid in response. I've been using it for B&W film developing and it does the job well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for b&w and colour film I use this thermometre for colour and b&w film. The numbers are easy to read, and the Paterson name is consistent with reliability, and spot-on results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, long, easy to read thermometer I use this for checking/verifying temperature of chemicals while processing film. I have used this to calibrate a digital thermometer.
