What they say:

“Brother Max's 6-in-1 thermometer is non-contact, silent and easy to use - making it perfect from birth and suitable for the whole family. It can be used to measure your child's temperature at first sight without contact and projects the illuminated temperature reading onto their forehead along with five other surfaces available for measurement. It reveals the body temperature, without ever requiring contact with the skin. The illuminated function makes taking an accurate reading simple - with its unique 'built' in aiming system. It can also be used to measure; forehead, room, food, bath water, liquids and skin temperature from 1-80 degrees celcius.”

This is the first digital thermometer I have used for my children, it has come at a great time as my daughter has chicken pox with a high fever and my son has been teething. It really is a godsend, it is easy and quick to use and my daughter doesn't complain when we have taken her temperature. We have been able to check when the children have been sleeping with adds extra peace of mind. I love that it is non-contact and compact so we have been able to take it with us.

How did this product make your life easier?     

In the past we have always used forehead strips to take temperature and it was always difficult, my daughter never sat still long enough and it didn't give a clear reading. I love how simple it now is to check the children without and tears or drama! It has also come in handy to check the temperature of my son's purée and bath water, such an innovative idea. According to the box, the batteries will last for 3 years, this is a massive positive as it will eliminate any problems of the battery running low while my children are young.

Would you choose this product to win?

Yes, definitely! I would never go back to the old style thermometer now, I love how straight-forward and precise this product it. My daughter had allowed me to take her temperature - and even asked for it - which has never happened before.

What changes would you make to this product?

There is not one thing I would change with the product, it is amazing!

It is so easy to use, far easier to use than any other thermometer i have used and very accurate. It gives very accurate readings and is well designed. It looks great, there are just 3 buttons and easy to follow instructions. I love that it is hygienic. All three of my children had a virus at once and instead of having to put a new ear guard on each time as i would have had to on my old in ear thermometer I was able to move between them.

How did this product make your life easier?     

You can take your child's temperature un-intrusively by simply pointing the thermometer at their forehead. When my children were poorly I was able to take their temperature without them even realising I was doing it which gave me peace of mind and allowed me to regularly monitor them, even when they were asleep. It’s fantastic that you can also use the product to take the temperature of bath water, food and rooms.

It's amazing technology, to be able to just point it without contact on my children's forehead and get an accurate reading is just incredible. It is the best thermometer I have come across and I would definitely recommend it.

What changes would you make to this product?

Maybe a little screen for the saved memory temperatures, it’s a little annoying having to project them on to a surface to be able to see what your child's last temperature was when comparing to see if there has been improvement.

This was so easy to use and I love that it has so many functions. It really can check the temperature of anything! Brilliant that it doesn't require skin contact, saves the possibility of waking a poorly child when you need to take their temp. I loved the design and my husband who loves anything gadgety loved using it - bonus!

How did this product make your life easier?     

I didn't have the worry of waking a child when taking a temperature. Saves faffing about with different thermometers and it was always very accurate. An expensive but worthwhile purchase. I always trusted my wrist when checking the temperature of a bottle but this takes that away and I can now check what the temperature is exactly, no risk of giving my baby a bottle that's too warm.

Would you choose this product to win?

I loved that it can take the temperature of anything. The display was very clear and accurate. I think it is a good price for what you get although it's at the more expensive end of the spectrum.

What changes would you make to this product?

I am not sure how the battery life is yet, that could be an issue. Instructions were very wordy. Bit unnecessary as it was kind of self explanatory.

Tested by mum Tracy Platts for the M&B Awards 2017:

Would you recommend this to other mums?    

I love this product. It is so easy to use. I particularly like that I can check on my child's temperature at night without disturbing them. I also don't have to worry about hygeine because it doesn't come in contact with them. It is definitely worth every penny because it can be used for so many things like checking the temperature of your child's food and bath water. I love it.

How did this product make your life easier?     

This makes it easier for me in so many ways. Being able to check my child's temperature checking the bath water and temperature of there food, all in just one product. So to travel with I don't have to worry about carrying so many things. I also don't have to worry about cleaning it before using it on someone else.

What changes would you make to this product?

One thing that I would change about this product would be that the bottons on the thermometer aren't that clear. Maybe they could have a clearer symbol on the to make it a little more obvious what the button does. But everything else is spot on, I honestly wouldn't change anything else.

Tested by mum Hayley Mills for the M&B Awards 2017:

It's an easy product to use and no need for anything extra such as ear caps. It has multiple uses such as taking body temperature, room temperature, food temperature and water temperature. One product does the job of four which saves money on buying many different gadgets. It's lightweight and small so easy to transport in changing bag.

How did this product make your life easier?     

It's a one for all type product which gives fast readings. It made making a bath quicker with no need to wait for the bath thermometer reading as this gave me a reading in seconds. I found it great to check the nursery temperature throughout the night with a quick and accurate reading.

Would you choose this product to win?

I found the reading a little out in comparison to a digital ear thermometer. This product is great as it has multiple uses however I prefer the accuracy of other thermometers for taking body temperatures. For ease of use, and trans-portability this product is fab.

What changes would you make to this product?

I would 100% love this product if the body temperature reading was more accurate, however I don't believe any product that doesn't actually touch the skin would give a precise accurate reading. Maybe if the product had the flexibility to also take body temp in the ear for example it would be the perfect thermometer.
