Am I being silly, or can this be used for doing a humans temperature?


Yes.

But surface temperature only, for internal temperature you will need a probe.

Thanks

I've seen these used in commercial shipping where they point it at a say, a high pressure pump housing and immediately know something is wrong. Rather than wait for a set of bearings to explode and the boat has to limp in to the nearest friendly port.
Very handy in a mechanics tool kit
Any good for cooking? More specifically to identify if meat has been cooked by reaching a certain internal temp

No it just does surface, for internal you'll need a probe.

Used it to check oil temp when deep frying, but can't check internal temp. It's a good price I think. There are several different meters with the same package (I have the IR01C I think) has hygrometer included

Why am I considering buying one of these?
These are great when you first get them for about 5 minutes, then it becomes just another piece of crap in the carp draw that you need to move out the way to find another piece of crap that you put in the crap draw.

Is it a gadget, YES! Do I need one, No. Do I want one, Hell Yes. (Except I already have one).
Came in handy when I fixed my sister's american fridge (loads of ice build up behind the rear fridge panel), was able to tell within 2 mins that the fridge was then OK and getting colder, whereas before the fix it was room temp.

Guys, Lets start a thread of possible uses (As this is why you really need one of these!!!) for a laser thermometer, here's my starter for 10:-

Checking your Fridge / Freezer is OK.
Babie's bath time, measuring the water temp (although always double check with your elbow / forearm 1st!)
Car Air con (Is it working OK), how cold is your air vent with the air con on full chill, do you need a re-gas?
Car cooling probs, can measure radiator hoses, bottom vs top very quickly and easily. Bottom should be cooler than top, if so water pump and radiator are working OK. (Maybe measure when car is OK, so you have some good benchmark temps).
Car diagnosis - Easy to point at the exhaust outlet ports on each cylinder and see if there's a discrepancy with the other 3, if so 1 cylinder may not be firing correctly.
Car Brakes, drive for a while, braking normally. Pull over then spot check the front left brake disc, compare with front right. Do the same on the rear as a separate pair, if there is a massive difference with L&R there is a braking issue.
...OR if this one has the LED aim spot, mine been used more for winding up the cat..
