When making compost it is very important to know the compost's temperature. A high quality compost thermometer from Groundgrocer.com will enable you to monitor the core temperature of your compost pile accurately and easily.
The temperature reading will tell you when to add water to your compost, when to turn the pile and when it is mature and ready to use. Because heat is an essential element in the production of good quality compost, you want to ensure you have a very accurate compost thermometer to monitor the enitre production process.
If the compost is too hot, it will destroy beneficial microorganisms that are essential to the proper conversion of your compost materials into humus. If the compost temperature is too cold microbial activity will be reduced and weed seeds and any pathogens are not destroyed. In such cases compost can take a very long time to mature. So be sure!

Works great, now I am monitoring my compost, makes a big difference when you can measure the temperature.
My Reotemp backyard compost thermometer has been giving me readings of up to 65 degrees Celsius since I commenced using it. The needle doesn't oscillate and I'm very pleased with the instrument thus far. Recommended.
I got a surprise when the thermometer looked so robust and really really worked
used it each day for a week-it takes the guesswork out of large compost piles-mine is approx 6m3 and measuring at different points is easy .i would give it 5 stars but delivery was ordinary-took a week to get into stock and a week to deliver
This thermometer has proven to be great! Extremely useful for monitoring a compost pile
Confirms other favouable reviews. Sturdy iems, rgisters temperature quickly, so cn be shifted from one heap to another and get quick readings. Great to be able to monitor compost heaps.
It's a great thermometer for my compost. So much more accurate than trying to guess the temperature by sticking my arm in there! It's an exciting challenge trying to maintain the right temperature to make a good compost.
This is a great product and has so far been completely reliable. The dial is clear and easy to read and the unit is well made. We are composting humanure so a good thermometer gives us the confidence that the process is working well and the compost produced at the end of the process is safe.
This great little gadget has improved my compost pile enormously,,,,happy vegie patch :)))))
