This Gland Instant Read Infrared Ear and Forehead Thermometer arrived just a few days after ordering it last week. When I looked at the packaging and instructions I thought that Amazon had sent me the wrong unit. However, after speaking with the company, I learned that I did indeed receive the dual-mode model and how to use it correctly. They even took the time to send me a quick video to make sure I didn’t have any problem. Now, that is what I call great customer service! This unit arrived with everything we needed to get started. Like others have mentioned, the battery cover is a bit hard to get off. For me, getting the cover off to install the included batteries took the assistance of a letter opener. My unit arrived in ear-mode and ready to read in Fahrenheit. After inserting the batteries, I just had to remove the dust cover press the power button, place the sensor end in the ear canal, and press the scan button. In just a few seconds the thermometer beeped and I had a reading.
Operating this unit is easy. Yes, at first I had trouble switching between the modes and temperature readings. But once I talked to their representative I found that changing from one mode and feature to the other was super easy. Here’s a quick explanation for those that might need it. To Change Celsius and Fahrenheit: With the unit off, press and hold the scan button until the unit turns on and then before it turns off press the scan button again. This switches the thermometer from Celsius to Fahrenheit and vice versa. To Change Ear and Forehead: With the unit off, press and hold the power button until the unit turns on and then before it turns off press the scan button. This switches the thermometer from Ear to Forehead and vice versa.
With these new instant read digital thermometers, the old days of struggling with getting kids to hold still are a thing of the past. I wish that I had one of these when my children were little. Using the old glass mercury thermometers always scared me. Especially, when they were babies and toddlers! The forehead mode is safe for anyone of any age and you can safely use this thermometer to get a reading from the ear of anyone over the age of one in just a few seconds. Note: It is not recommended to use digital ear thermometers for anyone under six months of age.
