The probes on them are sturdy, but you still have to not beat them up. Don't pull the probes by the wires, dont kink the wires, and dont wash wash the probes by immersing them in water or just putting them under running water. Wash them with alcohol pads or with a sponge around the probe and dry immediately.
I have had my ET-732 for almost 6 months. I use it 2-4times a week. I havent had problems with any of the probes (I bought 2 of the 6ft hybrid probes from bbqequipmentstore.com) other than the food grate prob which my roommate had washed and fully immersed it in water.
