    That would be extreme. It does take some time to heat up and settle but once up to temp and you keep the door closed, setting at 225 should be +/- 5*F plus a 10* swing in either direction as the Coil turns on and off...JJ

    The first time I used mine it was within 5-10° of my maverick. Today it was reading in the neighborhood of 30° higher than maverick. Guess it could have to do with probe placement to though.
