You'll have decent results between the Wintact WT530 and the Mecurate IRT600A. But if you have to choose only one, with more accurate readings in the performance test, the Wintact WT530 will be a more practical choice.

Specifically, the Wintact thermometer receives a total performance score of 8.0 out of 10. Meanwhile, the Mecurate IRT600A — having underperformed in the hot test with cooking oil — only gets a 6.9 out of 10.

Both models did well in the design and usability test portions.

Overall, the Wintact WT530 will make much more sense as the model to pick compared to the Mecurate IRT600A.
