DETAILS

AcuRite Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer 00795

Manufacturer Part # 00795A2

Product Overview
The glass Galileo thermometer with globe storm glass combines style and functionality as a beautiful accent piece for any home or office. Features an 11"" Galileo thermometer, a glass Goethe barometer with frosted world map decoration and wooden base. Makes a great gift item and lasting conversation piece!
Galileo Galilei, the pioneer of modern astronomy and physics, (1564-1642), discovered that liquids change density as the temperature increases or decreases. Based on this principle, the colored glass spheres inside the glass Galileo thermometer have been precisely weighted so that they respond to temperature changes. When the temperature rises, the liquid inside the Galileo thermometer becomes less dense and the colored spheres floating inside will sink towards the bottom. When the temperature of the room cools, the process is reversed and the spheres will rise from the bottom.
The Storm Glass is hand blown and accurately forecasts changes in the weather hours in advance. The Storm Glass, or Goethe Barometer, is regarded as the oldest barometer in the world. Although Johan Wolfgang von Goethe is sometimes credited with its invention, one was found in his bedroom after his death, there is evidence that the Moors used similar instruments during the 8th century. Also called Thunder Glasses, historians believe the early settlers sailed to the Americas using this rudimentary barometer.
One-year limited warranty. It's more than accurate, it's AcuRite.

Product Reviews

This is a wonderful gift and curious item. The barometer seems to be affected by the temperature as well as the air pressure. I put it in my vacuum machine and it certainly showed the lower pressure. But late in the day when it is hotter it seems to react accordingly. The thermometer is cute and quite responsive in the range of normal room temperatures. When the box came I thought it was broken as the thermometer floating vials clinked against the glass tube like a broken light bulb. But all was ok -- it was well packed. I used carpet tape to affix the two items to the base as they easily tip out of the base. The "filler" tube (with syringe) is hard to insert in the barometer -- it gets stuck half way down. Just inject a bit of water and tip it to wet the glass filler neck and it will insert better.

Purchased this on sale, and after reading the decent reviews online and on Amazon.com, I decided (because of the sale price) that this was a good deal. At $26.99, this made a wonderful gift for my father. He stated that he likes his red food coloring a lot better than the blue he first used. He also stated that it fluctuates and moves quite a lot. When visiting his nice new home, it does look pretty impressive sitting in the middle of the wine bar shelves. It's possible that, next time it goes on sale, I'll buy one of these for myself! FREE shipping really completes this deal! Thank you, Meritline!

Very cool item. I have it by my window and it looks great. It actually works very well.

Great office piece. It sits on my desk all day. The globe does require water and a little set up but it comes with the tools needed. You have to provide the food coloring though unless you like a clear ocean. Thermometer is sealed and accurate. Overall a nice piece

Agree with Michael's review - great office addition and cool conversation piece. The wood is golden oak and not cherry, as shown in the picture - but still very nice. Followed the instructions and no problems - just requires you provide water (distilled recommended) and some food coloring for the globe. The thermometer is pretty accurate and the barometer is as well, especially as when I set it up today happens to be stormy. It's cool and I like it - nice piece for $30! :)

Great addition to my office. The wood is more of a golden oak than the picture. Used three drops of food coloring in a glass of distilled water for the globe. I followed the directions that came with it for filling the globe and it all went as planned. The temperature seems pretty accurate compared to my digital gauge.
