    I just ordered and received my new Maverick dual probe yesterday.  I got it all put together last night and fired it up just so I could get used to the setting and i noticed that probe two was reading 4 degrees cooler than probe 1 at the same room temp. Unusual.  I fired up a pot of boiling water and both probes went to 214 instead of 212 degrees.  Is there a way to calibrate this thing.  I read such good reviews about it on the forum that I thought I would give it a shot but now not so sure.  any suggestions?

    If you look in the manual I think it says accurate to +\- 5 or 6 degrees. If yours is 2 degrees high at a boil, you're fine. Mine reads 216 in boiling water.
    I'm addition, the 2 probes will read slightly differently. One is geared more toward slower, more accurate readings and the other is geared toward quicker temperature changes. At least this is what I seem to remember.

    And no, there is no way to calibrate it, at least not on the 732. I just noted in sharpie on the transmitter and receiver that mine reads 4 degrees high.

    I like that I can use my 733 as a dual probe thermometer without even playing with the programming module.  What I don't like is the length of the probes.  The units are expensive enough to then have to look for longer probes.

    2 degrees will have zero impact on butts
