This product comes in a nice, easy to open box. Included in the box are the instruction booklet, stand, and thermometer. I read through the instructions first and then began to test the product. I love that it is so multifunctional. It can be used as an ear thermometer, forehead thermometer, room thermometer, object thermometer, and can be used as a clock. I also like that it shows a sad face to indicate a fever right away. It can be changed from Fahrenheit to Celsius, if needed. I like that it also stores the last measurement taken. The stand makes it easy to access and just grab and go, very important with a newborn. The one advantage that this thermometer has over the last one I tested is that it has an ear function. The bottom cover of the thermometer comes off and there is a probe that can be placed gently into the ear. Overall, this is a great multifunction infrared thermometer. I received this at a discounted price in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed are 100% my own.
