The Kizen LaserPro LP300 and the Etekcity Lasergrip 1080 are among our low performers. Specifically, our benchmark gives the Kizen a score of 5.2 out of 10 due to its inconsistent results in the hot test with oil. Meanwhile, the Etekcity infrared thermometer is given an even lower score of 4.1, having also flunked our hot test.
Without considering other factors like design and usability, it’s quite clear that there’s no reason to pick the Etekcity thermometer over the Kizen. But even then, it’s still not an ideal pick. Many other infrared thermometers in the same price range will give you better value for your money.
