Delivers as advertised...
It's unfortunate that this meter is getting such bad reviews. Based on the reviews I've read, it appears that many of the people who purchase this piece of equipment should leave measurement of electrical parameters to someone who actually understands what they are measuring. I am a professional electronics technician and have been working in the field for over 30 years. I purchased this meter to make DC current measurements on some sailboat dc electrical systems I am working on. I needed to be able to easily measure battery charge and discharge currents so I needed a clamp-type DC ammeter. After having used this meter I can say that, for the most part, it performs as advertised. I have tested all the measurement functions (i.e. AC volts/amps, DC volts/amps, Resistance, Capacitance, Temperature, continuity beeper and diode (p/n junction) test) and all worked fine. While the meter works well, it's not perfect. Some drawbacks are.... 1) No range selection / hold feature (Auto only) 2) Peak hold does not work across auto ranges in Voltage mode 3) A little large for some tight spaces The Fluke 337 is a much nicer meter but cost three times as much! If you are looking for a decent quality clamp-type AC/DC ammeter at a reasonable price, look no farther.

I needed to replace a meter that i use everyday in the hvac field. I saw the capabilities of what this meter could do and thought it would be ideal. The very first chance I had to use this meter will also be the last. Working on a rooftop unit that was blowing fuses, I was trying to track down an obvious short. I replaced wiring from the disconnect to the unit because this meter showed resistance between two of the three wires (3-phase) and ground with the wires disconnected form the unit. After replacing the wires I checked again and this meter still showed resistance on the wiring. I had to borrow a maintenance mans meter to finish diagnosing the equipment. Not only did I waste man-hours, I feel that I looked incompetent to my customer. In all fairness, the voltage, ammeter, and capacitance parts of the meter seem to function properly. If I can't ohm out components or check for continuity accurately, I don't trust the other readings the meter shows.

Good meter for the price!

As a car audio SPL competitor, a good clamp meter is an import device in your tool bag. Although this clamp is a little slower than a Fluke, it is a good meter for the price. You get a clamp capable of metering AC as well as DC amperage for the same cost or cheaper than a Fluke that will only meter AC amperage.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Clamp Meter does the job

I own twelve 30+ year old vehicles and use the meter to check current consumption. Since most multimeters max out at 10 Amps, repeatedly blew fuses in the meter. This meter does a good job of measuring current without disconnecting the circuit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

OEM brand revealed, great value

I just purchased an EXTECH 800Amp AC/DC True RMS clamp meter, model EX730.  I was quite surprised shopping Sears when I came across this meter as it is identical hands down.  The EXTECH is covered with Craftsman but all the layout and lettering is the same.  I looked at the manual and compared it to my EXTECH manual and is like a photo copy so convinced this is the OEM maker for this product.  I purched it because the reviews were quite high and it has outstanding features and high in accuracy when compared to others with same features and accuracy costing way more.  I am mad that the real EXTECH is >$40.00 higher in price from ****** for this same meter so wished I had came across this one first to save money.  The only difference is the case color.  I have not compared with others for accuracy and just received it so can't speak to satisfaction yet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not accurate

This is my second clamp meter for today. First one was the same brand but not in the professional line. This one suppose to be a very accurate unit for the fact it is in the professional line. To give you some examples of measurements; a 3500W water heater is according to this meter (73756), about 1.8Amps. A 1500W heater is 2.1 Amps.  The bottom line is people buy Craftsman because of a long history of reliable products. I personally buy this brand from quite a while. I am trying to be a steady client of the store but this is very discouraging.

works great

I thought I wasted my money accidentally buying this, the next larger size unit. Bingo, needed it just last week for a diesel engine starter on a boat that started fine with booster pack. One of the techs spent about an hour checking harness, batteries, switches, and the like before borrowing my clamp meter. Problem solved except now the other techs will want to borrow it also. LoL

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Returned

All the meter functions worked except the thermocouple part. It measured ice and room temp okay, but the thermocouple cable or the thermocouple adapter frequently opened up and didn't make a connection thus returned it. The return process was easy via the online option to get a return receipt, then dropping it off a nearest Sears pickup/return counter.

Craftsman Professional True RMS AC/DC Clamp Ammeter worked well.

I purchased the Craftsman Pro True RMS AC/DC Clamp Ammeter for a repair project on my Generac 10K generator.  It worked well for the application and it also worked well in determining amperage draw.  I would recommend this item.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great value

Got it from an electrical engineer that this was the best value going for home use troubleshooting and repair of electronics and do it yourself electrical use. My friend has over 30 years experience in the field and he didn't steer me wrong on this meter. I love it!
