The Eventek ET312 is one of the most accurate thermometers in our database, with a total performance score of 8.2 out of 10. Meanwhile, the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 trails far behind with a failing score of 4.1. It gave highly inaccurate temperature readings in the hot test with cooking oil.
Without considering other factors, it’s clear that most people will be happier with the Eventek ET312. Until we re-test the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 later, we can’t recommend the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 to anyone for any use.
