Brother Max Non-Contact Thermometer Review

Just before Christmas Maxwell was rather poorly with a bug. He had a high temperature and had a bad cold. Normally I would have to fight with Maxwell to try and get his temperature using a thermometer in his ear which sometimes gave me a inaccurate reading however much to my relief we were recently sent the new Brother Max Non-Contact Thermometer.

The Non-Contact Thermometer is a great little product that is designed with parent and child in mind.
It is bright, compact and easy to use. It is the perfect size to grip in one hand which enables you to hold your sick child if needs be with the other hand. The design of the thermometer means that it is a non-contact thermometer. All you have to do is simply hold the thermometer close to your child's forehead and press a button for a reading.

There are many clever features about the thermometer. The thermometer has a great feature that uses a traffic light system. The light indicates weather your child's temperature is normal, raised or high, along with this the thermometer will actually give you a number reading. In addition to the traffic light system the thermometer also includes a back light which is perfect at night as it stops me having to turn lights on to see the temperature reading.

The thermometer has a clever memory feature and can store previous temperature readings which is handy for tracking how your child's temperature is progressing. This feature is brilliant especially if you have to go to the doctors and they asked if your child's temperature is raising.

The Thermometer also has a feature which lets you not only take your child's temperature but also room temperature. I will find this feature useful in the summer as Maxwell's room sometimes overheats, so it will be great to find out if we need to open windows or even bring a fan into his room to stop him getting hot and bothered.

The thermometer is priced at £34.99 on offer at Boots at the present moment. The thermometer requires 2 x AAA batteries to work which are supplied.

I did not receive any financial reward for writing this review.
However we did receive the product for review purposes. Everything written in this post is my own, honest opinion.


  1. This is a brilliant idea! Looking for a new thermometer for baby #2 and this seems ideal.

  2. Awesome gadget! I really like that thermometer. If ever your baby got a fever it can't hassle you to use.
