While the Kizen LaserPro LP300 is one of our lowest-performing thermometers, the Wintact WT530 is among the best.

Meanwhile, the Wintact has an excellent score of 8.0, having excelled in both performance tests.

As such, on account of measurement accuracy alone, we can easily recommend the Wintact, which will provide you with much better readings than the Kizen.
