Just ordered the 732 which has been sold out here in Sweden for guite a while.

Is there any reason why I should cancel the order and wait for the upgrade?

And, is there any chance the new probes are backwards compatible. Would be interresting if they turn out to be more durable.

I sorta bet its gonna be a replacement for the 732 and I would also estimate that it will be at the same price point as the 732.

Maybe they will keep the 732 model for their private labeling (remington, Chargriller) and the 733 to differentiate their thermometer from these.. I hope your right about the price point thing... If they can bring it in for a similar price and "give" you a few bells and whistles, nice... If they add stuff the majority of folks wont use and bump the price 10-15 bucks than boo... 

 

I surely hope they had the brains to make a more durable probe... They have to know that is the one thing holding the 732 to being a great product instead of a good product.. I am sure they make some coin on replacement probes but they surely have to hand out a bunch while also having a lot of customers form an opinion of Maverick quality on a probe..

I know John has been critical of the quality of the Maverick probes also. I have experienced just the opposite. I have been using Maverick thermometers for over 12 years, and have only fried one probe. That was a ET-73 which was only rated to 400*F. I had opened the dome on a BGE and my top vent fully opened. I didn't realize it when I closed the dome, the temp got to 600*F and fried the probe. I am still using that 73 along with three 732's and haven't had a probe issue in years.

id like to know if the range is actualy as good as they say as my 732 looses connection if a leaf blows between the units

well not that bad but it pretty much needs a direct line of sight to be of any use

Something seems wrong there. With my 732 transmitter on the porch I can go anywhere inside my house with the receiver. Line of sight not needed.

to be fair ive only used it 2 times so could have just been unlucky but the first time i went to get a bath and it was sat on the window sil and lost connection and the second time i was stood in my kitchen and it kept repeatedly loosing the connection and i had to keep going out to the grill and resyncin the units

 

both instances i was prob no more than 100' away 1 with only i window between the units and the other with 1 external and 1 internal wall between the units

 

ive read a number of other comments around the internet with people with the same complaints

Why would they have 9 game presets?

I'm assuming that they say deer elk moose etc..

instead why wouldn't they just have 9 extra savable presets and simple number them.

Seems rather weird to me. I mean I have no plans on make rabbit or bear.

Oh well, maybe if I get one I can use the rabbit one for lamb or the bear one for meatloaf. LOL

Those are not "Generic" ET-732's, they are the standard Maverick ET-732's which have been rebranded in different colors, graphics and logos for various companies. Maverick has been doing that for years. I have a BGE rebranded ET-73 from 12 or 15 years ago.

Some comments..

 

1) It's too bad the highest temp it reports is only 572F, since that means every time I make pizza, I'll see "HHH" for the temp. I wish they would increase this to 700F. This way you know you are getting too close to the highest rated temp of the probes themselves, and could avoid accidentally wrecking them.

 

2) They mention you can customize the presets, so that means even if you cannot change the names, you can at least know for your own use that "Bear" = "Pork Shoulder" and "Rabbit" = "Pork Ribs". And if you can change the name, then that is awesome.

 

3) Up and now Down for setting temps will keep my BBQ rage in check. I think I swear up a storm the first few times I tried to set the temps...

 

4) That black color is way nicer than white.

 

5) In my house, when I go ino the basement corner (where my office is) furthest from my BBQ (possibly about 40 feet away max) the range is intermittently working. It often beeps to warn me it is not picking up a transmission. I'll just move closer, it will work again, then go back and it will work... or it will not... not sure why. Not a big deal for me though.

The only time I have connection issues with my 732 is in my basement. That's to be expected since metal in the walls basement wreaks havoc or reduce the range of most wireless devices.

The only real issue I was hoping they would address was longer probes. The probes are still 3 feet in the 733. 6 feet would have been nice. For the price point you can't really expect the same quality of probes as on the Thermoworks, CyberQ or Stokers

I agree, you can pick up 732's for $45.00. That's a much different "price point" than those other appliances you are comparing it to. I have been using 732's since they first came out (3 > 4 years ago) and have yet to loose a probe.

      I just got an early xmas gift, a Maverick et-733 dual probe thermometer. I'm psyched and can't wait to use it. Up until now I've used a cheapo $5 digital instant read probe that I got at Wal-mart. We are having a pot luck at the office this week and I'm going to smoke a Boston butt for the event. Currently the temperature in central Indiana is hovering around 20 degrees. I have a question concerning the maverick transmitter and very low outdoor temps: Will the cold weather have a negative effect on it or cause any damage? I'm probably being overly cautious but I'm not wanting to ruin a brand new toy. Thanks for reading and I appreciate any input you have on this.

      When I got my Akorn and joined this site in May I thought yall were crazy for having dual probe thermometers.  My, how we evolve so quickly.  I just bought a Maverick et-732 and am planning on smoking a pork butt tomorrow, care-free. Plan on letting the IT get just over 200, then wrapping in foil and a towel for an hour (if there's a better method, please share.)
       
      My question is, before I do this, should I test the Maverick?  Is there a calibration that needs to be done?
       
      When I do it, should I stick the meat probe through the top, through the length side, or through the width of it?  How far from the bone should I be?
       
      Just want to make sure I get this done right.  Couldn't find quite the answers I was looking for using the search function.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      I just received my igrills mini a month ago followed a week later with the igrill2, I was real happy with it till last week when I discovered a problem, I was cooking a meatloaf and the igrills was reading 375 grill temp. The Jo's therm was only reading 250ish and in past experiences the dome and the maverick were pretty close to each other. After an hour I checked the meatloaf and it wasn't close to being done which is normally is on past cooks. The Jo temp hasn't changed so I hooked up my maverick and sure enough it was showing about 250° as well. Thinking I might have a bad probe I ordered another probe from igrill.
      Today it arrived and I figured I would hook them all up and see differences
      this is how the probes were set up

      Some reading. Sorry about glare

      Meter readings
      This was what it read 1 hour after I lit the fire.
      I put the chicken on and watching the temps and now the two igrill probes are within 2 degrees of each other but the maverick is 10° lower. The Jo's temp is reading 40° lower now, its been maybe 15 minutes since I put food on
      I now have four temperatures and not sure which one to believe

      Just got off the phone with Firecraft about the upcoming ET-735. He didn't have a lot of answers but I'll give what I got from them.
       
      1. Release date has been pushed back to end of Feb
      2. ET-735 probes will be water resistent. Can clean under running water
      3. Didn't think new probes would work with older units, but will they will check when they get some in
      4. Said the new probes would probably be 6 footers
      5. Unit is a local / tx device. You must furnish the remote recieving device
      6. Unit is Bluetooth capable via iPhone® or Android® device
      7. Unit comes with 2 probes.
      8. Unit will be capable of 4 probes at once.
      9. Pretty sure the probes are hybride pointed meat/grid thermos will know more when they arrive
      10. Will work with your blue tooth even if you loose cell coverage as it's blue tooth NOT internet. You won't be able to check it while at work as it's not an internet device. That is as far as they know at this time.
      11. Repacement / additional probes from firecraft willl be $20 as of now.
      12. Cost of unit from firecraft $79.99
      13. From the picture displayed, it looks like it will only show 1 probe temp at a time. There is a setting button for the Blue tooth device but no picture showing what that option gives you. Maybe it has an option to show all the probe temps at one time. Will know when they arrive.
      14. Appears there is a timer setting on the blue tooth device. Hopefully there will be more than 1 timer available.
       
      Link for Firecraft and write up so far on the ET-735
