Braun ThermoScan 5 Influenster Review

Posted on: 10/08/2014

Have I told you about Influenster? I’ve only been a member for a short time, but they recently sent me a free Braun ThermoScan 5 Thermometer to review. With six people in our house, we’re no strangers to germs and illnesses. I’ve bought a few thermometers over the years, but they tend to get lost or broken by the kids. Influenster sent the ThermoScan at the perfect time since illnesses seem more abundant in the fall and winter.

There are tons of thermometers on the market. What makes this one special? I liked the super quick readings, very important with a squirming cranky baby. Here’s what Braun has to say about the ThermoScan 5:

When it comes to accurately taking a child’s temperature, doctors trust the precise Braun ThermoScan® ear thermometer above all others*, thanks to its patented, pre-warmed soft tip. The tip on other thermometers can cool the area where the reading is taken, which can lead to inaccurate readings. The tip on the ThermoScan® is warmed before use to prevent this and ensure professional accuracy. In addition, the ExacTemp® guidance system confirms the correct position and accurate reading with a light and a beep. You will also appreciate disposable Braun certified lens filters that help prevent the spread of germs between uses. And now with the new large screen and ergonomic design, Braun ThermoScan® is even simpler to use. Discover why the Braun ThermoScan® is the No. 1 brand among doctors.


Gentle enough to use on a sleeping baby

Usually I’m not a fan of disposable products, but I figure lens filters for a thermometer are a great one-time use product. What busy parent really has time to properly clean a thermometer if they’re caring for sick kids? So far we’ve only used the ThermoScan for testing purposes, but the quick and easy to read results have made me thrilled to add a new thermometer to the medicine cabinet. The kids like that it’s actually comfortable to use.

All thoughts & opinions are my own two cents, as always. If you’d like to sign up for Influenster, comment with your email address & I’ll send you an invite!

You are so lucky!! I wanted that one!


Some of my friends just posted the no-touch one, I’m a bit jealous of them, but this one is pretty sweet 🙂


The only things I’ve gotten is a thing of avens skin corrector and a razor
