Hygrometer and Thermometer
This hygrometer and thermometer by ThermoWorks is perfect for testing the humidity in a cheese cave. Each unit includes a wall bracket, remote sensor, and operating instructions. This hygrometer is a professional tool at an affordable price. It records Min and Max temperatures and can be set to display Fahrenheit or Centigrade. With large 1 inch digits you'll have no trouble reading the current display.
Mount your hygrometer right to a wall with a convenient wall mount or set it onto a solid surface with the fold-out stand. This unit can display two separate temperature readings using a sensor on a 10 foot cable (included) to also measure temperature in a remote location. The humidity sensor is housed in the hygrometer body so it can only monitor moisture at the base location. It will not read humidity in the remote location.
Note: It is important to use a hygrometer that provides an accurate reading. Many digital hygrometers are not intended for high moisture measurement. We've tested, and rejected, multiple units before finding this accurate hygrometer and thermometer.

I purchased the Hygrometer/Thermometer about a month ago and placed it in my wine refrigerator which I use as my cheese cave. I feel a lot more comfortable now about the humidity as I can adjust as needed by adding a bowl of water to the fridge and can watch the humidity adjust to where I need it. It also gives me a more accurate temperature reading. The wine fridge has a temperature adjustment but what I have found is that it is colder on the bottom and warms on the higher shelves so I can place my cheese on more appropriate shelves now. I just finished making brined Feta, Gouda and Smoked Gouda, Colby, Jarlsberg and Triple Cream Brie and I am much more confident that I am hitting the temperatures and humidity levels that these cheese need than before. Also the readings are large and easy to read through the glass front of my wine fridge and the unit maintains the setting for a bit when the door is opened. It was a great investment for me.
This hygrometer/thermometer is a great investment. My cellar was way too warm and dry. (No wonder my potatoes got old too fast.) This has allowed me to get my cellar at the right temperature and humidity levels before I introduce any cheese.
My problem when aging cheeses was knowing the humidity in the refrigerator. Temperatures were never a problem. Thermometers are easy to find. Hygrometers not so much. This hygrometer/thermometer makes monitoring the cheese refrigerator easy. The large numbers are easy to read. As noted in an earlier review, you can adapt the thermometer for use outside of the refrigerator, but not the hygrometer.I checked the thermometer against another thermometer and it is accurate.
I have a thermometer that I received to help keep the temperature and humidity levels in my cooler as close to desired ranges as possible. The thermometer/hydrometer is easy to use and the large numbers on the face make it easy to see through the glass. I can’t wait to try my first attempt at making cheese..... this should help me to achieve the results I desire
Purchased for our wine/cheese refrigerator and so far it is working great. Nice size screen, easy to read and see.
