Same reason I like tachometers, temperature gauges, and battery volt meters- just one more thing to monitor while driving. Plus I don't have a read out on my old school Norcolds, so it's good to know the quantitative difference between 1.5 and 2 on the dial.

It ain't rocket surgery. Put the bulb of the thermometer in a glass of distilled water and set in your freezer. When water throughly resembles a hockey puck, read display and note offset from 0C.

There is a pretty big difference in temp between the top and bottom of my Engel. If I have it set for 33* in the top baskets bottom items become solids.
