Monitor Temp and Humidity in Cave or Refrigerator

About This Product

Thermometer and Humidity Meter for Cheese Cave / refrigerator


After testing other similar models, we've found this low cost hygrometer/thermometer works quite well for home and artisan cheese makers who use refrigerators/freezers/wine coolers to age their cheese. The bold, easy to read LCD screen displays humidity and temperature, daily high / low readings, and a comfort level icon to easily convey a low, high or ideal humidity level. Compact and portable, the monitor comes with a magnetic backing to stick inside the fridge or stands upright inside your aging container. To reset the 24-hour clock, simply reinsert the battery. Also easy on the battery. 

Important Note:  After using the Acurite to monitor your temperature/humidity for 24-48 hours,  I highly recommend taking the battery out and leaving the unit outside your 'cheese cave'.  This will prevent any long term  moisture from affecting the electronics and also will save your battery.  In testing, the battery did last for about three months.

    Very easy setup (thank you for the batteries). Still trying to get humidity in my cheese cave where I need it so this is indispensable.

    Worked on first use

    Opened package, put in battery, slide into cooler, and compared to a thermometer 24 hours later. Temps were the same, and humidity seemed reasonable based on home weather station reading. Removed battery and stored in package until the next time a reading is needed.
