Electronic Soil Tester is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soil cleans the probes Oxidation layers on the probe ends WILL result in nuetral measurement. Its you not the probe. The soil scratches the metal and makes a pure contact. Let the meter sit around and then pull it out and stick it in some muddy water off your soil sample and IT WIL NOT WORK AS DESIGNED. Found out the hard way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work I bought it today and I couldn't get it to read anything but a 6.5 or 7 so I decided to check it in white distilled vinegar and it read 6.5 not 2.4 and I moved it to fertility and it moved to 5.5 so it does move it just doesn't work

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't buy! I bought this a couple weeks ago and it doesn't seem to work. (I did move the switch to ph or fertility) When I bought it the needle was pointed to 7 even though it was off which I thought was odd. When I put it in the ground-different places-the needle hardly moved. I deliberately put it where I knew the ground to be rich or poor. I will take it back -but I am disappointed. I really wanted a soil tester. I like other Burpee products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from soil tester didnt work I tried it on 3 different beds in Texas, all read exactly the same. Then also tried it in soil in Arkansas, read the same. I am confident the soil is not the same in both states/every bed, but instead, the tester did not work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Perfectly I bought this product and followed the instructions on Pantlay's review. It worked perfectly in vinegar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pantlady review is the answer My brother gave me his Burpee meter and said it did not work. It had been in his garage for a number of years. I followed Pantlady's instructions and now it works great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe as a plant marker if I paint it? I've bought 4 of these over the years, and saw one with the name Burpee. I thought it would be better. Name, you know. But when I got it home, I tried the ammonia/distilled water/vinegar test. Cleaned the probes between each dip with a pH neutral soap solution, then rinsed carefully in distilled water. I did it just like I'd do in a science class. Guess what? They are all miraculously about a pH of 4.2. I didn't turn water into wine, I turned ammonia and vinegar into distilled water! So I poured the vinegar into a jug of water for my acid-loving plants, and poured the ammonia on my compost pile, and poured the distilled water into a window box. The tester? I use it when I teach classes, as an example of "You Get What You Pay For." And I bought a pretty expensive tester from the local Ag and Garden supply place. That one passed with flying colors of litmus pink and blue.
