I have one that I've used for the past 2 years. I use it in the kitchen, BBQing, as well as cheese making. It is accurate and also takes fast readings. Back when I bought it, it was a very highly reviewed thermometer for the price. Has a switch inside the battery compartment to switch between F and C. Has a magnet built in to make it easy to stick onto your fridge or whatever.

I liked it so much I bought it for the best cook in the entire world... my mom. And she loves it as well.

Basically, you can buy the cheap ones on ebay, and they will work too, and be accurate. What you really pay money for when it comes to digital thermometers is the speed at which they read, and this one is pretty quick. And when your hand is holding a thermometer above a 500F BBQ, you will be glad that it takes fast readings!

Oh, a cheap Thermapen copy.
Wonder if it works as well?

Thermapens are awesome. Mine has been going for over 15 years. Not cheap, but they work and last.

I like how this one has a wire probe and you can just stick it and leave it in.
Two different uses.

One you stick in something big and leave it. Think roast, or smoking on the BBQ. Like the Weber iGrill for the latter.

The other you use to instantly (literally, the good ones read in about 1 second) check the temperature of anything, especially fast cooking and thin protein.
Is your bread baked? Cheesecake done?
How about that steak on the blazing hot grill? Perfect medium rare?
A thin fish fillet? No problem.
So simple and fast, you grab it to check the water temp when you proof yeast.

For an instant read thermometer you want accuracy, tiny probe and damn fast to read. Seriously, buy a Thermapen. Yeah, they’re more money. If you cook enough to need this, the price is nothing compared to the cost of your food.

Darn, I was in the market for one of these cheaper ones. I have 2 thermaoens but wanted a cheaper one for another location. Guess I should amp up my RFD game and check more frequently so don't miss out on good deals ..

Had one of these for about 3-3.5 years now. Still rocking the same battery and use it often. Only downside is you need to take the battery cover off to change from F to C, but aside from that it has been great.

Highly recommended, especially at this price (if it comes back as I know the lightning deal is over)

I have a cheap one from Ebay which I paid $2 and I am using it for 2 years.
It shows that boiling water is 99 Celsius - good enough for me
Takes about 8 seconds to read the temperature but who cares since I don't need to hold it with my hand

I was looking at this a few days ago. Hopefully it will drop in price again as it was $16.99 back near the end of Oct/2020. I do understand the wired probe use as I was thinking of having that added function when bake/roasting stuff. Plan on doing some cooked chicken when I get a billy can on my Firebox Nano and G2 Firebox. For me I'm looking for a compact dual function thermo reader for field cooking as well as home cooking. Could anyone recommend any good economical budget models that can do probe temp monitoring as well as instant reading?







Do they make thermo readers with an vibrate alarm as well?
