Not worth it... Rather go with a wireless thermopro with two probes. Maybe not app controlled but still wireless and accurate.

For long smokes, this could be quite useful. I'm using a thermopro set from Amazon with a remote (rf) reader. But when I have to step out for 30 min /1 hour, i obviously can't monitor the bbq's temperature.. But 150$....ouch

The price point is a bit crazy, but people should all have SOME kind of probe thermometer for both indoor and outdoor use - it dramatically improves cooking and it's easy to use. Chicken perfectly cooked instead of pink or dry. Steaks cooked to your exact specs every time. I got a ThermoPro two-probe meter that has a wireless connection of a couple hundred feet for like 60 bucks on sale (currently 80):

I'm pleased with it. There are a ton of other options available, always worth looking around.

The only time I would say that the meater style fully wireless probes are useful are if you do a lot of rotisserie cooking - no wires to wrap around the spit, and don't have to have a weird setup where they base unit has to spin as well.

That being said, if you don't use that, then meater probes are just a huge waste of money. Cool? Yeah. But not for me.

Have one, as does a buddy. Works well. If I were to do again I'd get the WiFi block for better reception. Bluetooth is crap

The US vs. Canadian prices make no sense. Last month I looked at the Meater Block in the US + 15% off coupon and it came to about $280cad after conversion, while on the Canadian site the same item with the same coupon came to $380.

Use coupon code ELITE to bring it down to a slightly more tolerable $331CAD only $49cad more than the equivalent US pricing.

I ended up pulling the trigger. I've been looking at the Meater Block for probably more than a year now, and for the amount of cooking I do both at home and at work, I think I can rationalize it in my mind...

I also think it's overpriced but don't compare this to wireless thermometer like Thermopro which offer remote reading, but still need wired probes.

With the Meater, it's 100% wireless probe so you can us it on a Rotisserie, different use and having this technology inside a probe and resistant to very high temperature may justify the price difference

THANK YOU! I cancelled and re-ordered with that code. Cheers!

Agreed - it's a game changer. I have a 2 probe unit for long smokes but the wires are no good for rotisserie. Meater is a great option for that.

I think I have like 3 wired probes. Pain in the butt wrapping them and cleaning them etc. They have their place sure. I often wished I had more of the meaters and the WiFi block. Will buy using code. I can't find a place to put the code using mobile.. Will try desktop

It's during checkout - check my screenshot, it's from mobile.

I have had one for over a year. One of the things I like the most is that it does a decent job of forecasting how long something will take to finish. When you start you set what you are cooking and how well done you want it and then it tracks the cook, forecasting when you will be done and giving a 5 minute warning. The one I have you place the block close to the BBQ and it broadcasts bluetooth to your phone or tablet. From there it connects to wifi and you can watch the cook from any wifi attached device. Expensive, but for me it was a present and I use it for most of my smokes or bbq.

Thanks for posting OP!

Been wanted to get a Meater for a long time and was waiting for a sale.
I have the Thermoworks MK4 but love the Meater for it's ability to estimate time and continually monitor.

I was tempted to get the block but couldn't imagine too many scenarios where I'd need 4 probes.
Went with the Meater plus so I'll see how it works out.

The Elite code worked for the single Meater plus but not on the 2 pack so I just got the single.

I've got the nutrichef one that has 2 probes and an app for wireless. For $55.

Can't see why you'd get this overpriced thing unless you do a significant amount of routissery and if you do then seems good.

I can help you think up a scenario! Imagine you're having a BBQ, all the guys are over, and you've got steak, smokies, burgers, and lobster all on the go 🤤

an extra probe would really help for say a brisket cook. its nice to know the temperature of the point and flat of the brisket, they can be very different.
The Elite quote works with two singular Meater Probes, but not the two pack for some reason.
2 pack with no code: $229
2x single probe with ELITE code: $203

Just yesterday I used 4 probes for these 6lbs porchettas
PXL_20210919_213157820.PORTRAIT.jpg
Had a probe in either end of each to make sure it hit 165 on all sides. Guess I could have just as easily moved the probes around. That being said... I'm using $20 probes, not $120 probes Face With Tears Of Joy
