    Worked GREAT, was impressed, however w/i 3-months, the 2-longer probes failed & gave/read way higher heat temps than I knew to be *(because I double checked w/ an aux. temp probe). They sent me new ones right away, but said the probes are the things they replace the most, especially due to heat/moisture @ the probe to wire crimp & especially due to the moisture associated when using a smoker/grill. This seems like a design flaw— this is what your meant to use them on!!! So will see as time goes on, I’ve only owned them for 3-months & used them approximately a dozen times thus far, but seems like they should re-design the probes to be 100% moisrture/heat proof w/i their normal operating ranges if this continues to be an issue, wouldn’t you think??? !!!

    Can you tell me what type of probes come with the XR-50, thermistor, type j, type k ?

    • Melissa Hunt

      Hi Mark, the XR-50 comes with four probes that can be used for monitoring BBQ or food temperatures. Both the PR-50F and PR-50BBQ are suitable to use with the XR-50. Thanks!

  3. Mark Fiore

    My question was “what type probes come with the XR-50”? Are they “thermistor” type/technology, or would they be “type j” or “type k” ?

    • Melissa Hunt

      The probes on the XR-50 are thermistors. They are high heat up to 350°C and water-resistant.

    One probe broke after the first use. After the second use, two more ones broke down. Big disappointment.

    Is it possible to set the alarmtemp for probe 1 and 2 lower than 105 degrees celsius, resett the factory settings for probe 1 and 2, i will use the XR 50 in a smoker and the degrees is not so high there.

    • maverickthermo

      Yes, the XR-50 can be set to a temperature as low as -10°C (14°F). To do this, press the # button for the probe you want to select. You will see the temperature flash, press the # button again. The High temperature will now flash, you can use the arrow keys to raise or lower this temperature. Press set and do the same for the Low temperature. You may have to change the low temperature first in order to decrease your high temperature. Please reach out to us at help@maverickthermometers.com if you need any further assistance. Thank you!

    Love this. Been using it for about 6 months. I use it about 2x a week .
    I had the Maverick ET-732 WIRELESS previously and this is way easier to use and has way more function and features. Worth the price difference so far.

    • maverickthermo

      Hi CKW! We’re glad to hear you’re enjoying your XR-50, and thanks for coming to share your thoughts! We love to hear it!
