Great thermometer, great service from Fairhaven
March 20, 2012
Due to possible PCOS, I read about basal temp monitoring and picked this thermometer: 1. It's mercury free. 2. It doesn't use batteries and is better for the environment. 3. I think digital gives less consistent measurements.
This thermometer is easy to clean, no plastic slip covers needed (less waste!) and full-proof to use. To get the mercury down, I put the encased thermometer in an old sock, and twirl the sock. (Read this online, it works!)
The only con is that it's a little wide and awkward to hold in my mouth at first. But now, it's comfortable.
Lastly, thank you Fairhaven for rapid shipping and friendly, gracious customer service on the phone.
