69.99 USD for the grey Thermapen Mk 4 + 9.99 USD flat shipping to Canada. No tax. Comes to slightly less than 100 CAD all-in.

Not everyone needs it, but it is the best, and I think this is the all time low price for a brand new Mk 4.

Thermapen Mk 4 (white only) on sale - while quantities last.

Shipping (Fedex) to Canada is approximately $10.
Currency conversion, all in about $100.

Upvoted for a good price.

For $35+tax cheaper than buying locally I think I'm gonna support a local business instead.

I can't imagine having your prime rib off by 1 - 2 degrees is going to kill you
Not really how it works. The best anything will always have diminishing returns, and beyond accuracy, there's also faster speed, waterproofing and warranty (and made in UK + calibrated) add to the cost. The extra speed makes a difference in some food where being slightly off = failure.

Anyways I don't regret getting it (it was slightly more expensive when I bought it), and can't see myself using anything else.

That’s a good deal for something that rarely goes on sale. Typically they are $134.99 CAD. I eventually went with the Thermopop for $40 since I don’t need +/-0.7 accuracy.

I have an MK4, a Javelin and some other lesser thermometers. The MK4 is the best for sure, fast and accurate read times, stellar build quality, and the autorotation is pretty sick.
I don't think you necessarily need to spend $100 to get a good thermometer because you could get basically the same thing for $40-60~.
But for those who want the best and are prepared to pay the premium, this is the one to buy, especially at this price.

Should mention that its 69.99USD...

..and 9.99 for shipping... to my address at least...also USD

EDIT: so 9.99 is for all of Canada apparently.

I have the ThermoPop and it works wonderfully. Is there a compelling reason for buying a Thermapen in this case?

I have an RT-301. Even with the sale, thermapen is double the price for 0.2F better window of precision, and 2-3 seconds faster read time.

I have an older Thermapen. Replace batteries a few times (back then they used CR2032). It just works and because it's so easy and fast, we use it all the time.
I also bought a magnetic silicone case, so it is always just attached to our range hood and accessible.
This is the Mk4 version: https://www.thermoworks.com/Thermapen-Mk4-Silicone-Boot $13 USD and yes, it's worth it.

Got one! Thanks OP, I almost bought the Thermopop a couple weeks ago, glad I waited (although I've heard that's a great product too).

It is also much faster at getting to temp compared to other thermometers, and is more reliable / will last longer.

That said, I am perfectly happy with my ~$15 ThermoPro knock off and haven't run into any issues with it after a few years.

I have had issues with my ThermoPro wireless kit however. The sensors started failing after 1-2 years to the point where 1-2 degree's off would have been nice. Instead the meat temp probe was off by 30-40 degrees and I didn't realize it until I sliced into a desert-level dry / gray roast that I thought I had hit a perfect 130f on.

I got it for $38 a while back. Don't know why price is higher now. But thermapen is a rip off
6 sec response vs. 1-2 sec is one reason we buy Thermapens. Over the many years of use, the added cost is really worth it.

This is one of those kitchen tools where if you have the money I would highly recommend it. I have a Mark 3 and been using it regularly for years. Worth every penny, especially at this price

Where is the Comark made? I'm willing to pay more for products, like the Thermapen, that are made in countries with high standards for working conditions. Not triple or quadruple the price, but double the price in this range is worth it to me.

The Thermapen also has an outstanding reputation and better design (folds in so it won't stab me).
