NONE of your words are answering the question as to how the Aromed is able to manipulate physics and read temperature of the herb when the thermocouple is not near the herbs. Think about it people. When you are checking the temperature of a steak do you dangle the thermometer above the grill? No you stab that thermometer into the meat and if you are taking the temperature of your herbs then you better have a thermometer/thermocouple in or directly above those herbs. I am not wrong until proven so. Do some research before you post. Please go to Wiki and read about how thermocouples work, how closed loop temperature control works. It should occur to you that I might actually know what I am talking about. I have said it a thousand times that the Aromed can not read the temperature in more than 1 place with 1 thermocouple. It is not in the herb so the it does not know the temperature of the herb. How hard is that to understand. Really? Just because someone makes a product it doesn't mean they have superior intellect. They don't have some hidden secret, do you not realize that they can't explain how it works because it is scientifically impossible. If you can't prove them right or me wrong then why argue? How are you turning this around on me? I just pointed out that the Aromed uses an off the shelf housing, I could care less, I just found it and thought I would share. When asked about the housing he then LIED and called me delusional or whatever. The proof is in the picture. Pay for the intellect all you want. Then you can buy a thermometer and see if the temperatures on the screen match the herb. If we used your reasoning we would believe the claims of every manufacturer because they have superior intellect.
