After years of the take a bite and sample the temp method, my sister’s recent bout with food poisoning due to undercooked food finally made me realize it’s time to find a smarter way. I saw a bunch of fancy thermometers with wires dangling and I’m sure they are wonderful..... and expensive and overkill for me. I wasn’t looking for a game of Operation, I simply wanted something to quickly and accurately tell me with precision if my food was cooked to the right temperature. There is absolutely 0 learning curve. Push the button, stick the thermometer in. I’d say it takes approx 2 sec for it to give a stable temp. So how can you tell if the number it says is correct? Well, this I discovered by accident. Just this morning I turned it on before using it and set it on the counter. As I grabbed

Really wish I have invested in a food thermometer earlier! I have resisted getting one for a while because I didn’t want to spend $80-$100 on ThermoWorks but I also didn’t want to spend $10-$20 on something that is not going to work that well. I came across this and decided to give it a try. It reads the temperature really quick and I tried it out with boiling water and the temp seems accurate. Note: Instead of AAA battery, it uses the button type of battery and they provide 2 of them in the packaging. Works great and definitely a value for money product!

So not going to lie they give people a special present for a review. That being said I could care less about it I had a old thermometer that seem like it took longer to get a reading then to actually cook the meat. This is easy to use seems very accurate I’ve used it for hamburger meat and chicken so far hamburger meat I have always been good at but decided to try it out the burgers came out great medium rare and the chicken has also been great not over cooked nice and juicy. Still need to try fish but so far it’s great also love the magnet stick it right on the fridge.

I always read reviews before buying things on Amazon and I am suspicious when the feedback is nearly 100%, The Inkbird Thermometer had so many good reviews that I was a little wary. I ordered the thermometer anyway and I am really glad that I did. This is a fantastic high quality thermometer. With all of the junk coming out of you know where, it is a pleasure to receive a well made quality product like this one. The Inkbird Thermometer is well made, solidly constructed, and accurate. I tested it on an ice bath and it reached 32.5 degrees. I tested it on boiling water and it hit 212 degrees. The response time is quick. In most cases it reaches a reading within a few seconds. It has a bright high contrast display. It also uses the same charger plug as my Samsung S8 phone so it is easy

I have used multiple "fast read" thermometers and some that cost 3 times as much. This unit is a great improvement from the earlier HET-F001, it is smaller and feels better in the hand and pocket. It also has a backlit display that doesnt rotate like some do but has large numbers so it makes it easy to read regardless of that. It is also alot faster than the previous model. It reads quick and then just press the hold button and you can remove from your meat and look at the temp then. Keeps you from holding your hand over heat for longer than necessary. Probably my favorite upgrade on this one is the fact that it is rechargeable via USB C instead of needing to keep batteries on hand for the HET-F001. With these you should always check your temps with a quick hot a cold test

Wow. I've struggled through some obtuse and vague product instructions before but this product truly takes the cake in a way that will never be surmounted. The only instructions in the box are supposedly how to calibrate it. The three dozen words provided can only vaguely be construed to represent English. Nothing observable occurs when you try to follow them, ostensibly calibrating against.... something or other. Oh wait, there's a QR code on the box! Nope... goes to a server that doesn't exist. Web searches of this product at ink-bird pull up a very few listings for this product.. but those links don't work, because those servers don't exist either.

And this with a seasoned science PH.D. experienced in bench equipment and another science grad trying to work this thing out. Over the next 30 minutes, we eventually conducted a variety of tests

I wouldn't won my ThermoPro probe thermometer set without this carrying case. It is polyfoam lined with the perfect sized cutouts for securely holding the sending and receiving units, plus a nice compantment for the probes. It protects well, and cleaned up fairly easily from grease splatters. I did need a old toothbrush to get it completely clean, but was grill grease! Otherwise, if you own the thermometer set this is a much have, especially if you plan on taking it anyway besides your backyard grill. Since I am the designated chef any time I visit relatives, and especially the "Grill Sergeant" for cookouts and camping, I am pleased to be able to safely carry my probe set without worry of damage.

I have a TP 20 for my Weber Kettle so when I got my WSM I decided to get one for it. I got the new case and the TP 20 so this will review the review for both. The TP 20 works just perfectly as my other one. The new case I like better than the original one, it has more space and is better laid out.

This storage unit for your cooking thermometer is great. Great quality and looks stylish but enough flair for it to stand out a little. Been using it for a few months now, and my only concern is whether the zipper handles will hold up in the long run, they are a little bit flimsy feeling and I get a sense that they could come off if not handled with care aka no children or drunk people which can be tricky at a BBQ (at least our BBQ's). Would buy again but would love to see the zipper upgraded to a thicker variant with better grip.

I am a manager of a deli and I've spent hundreds of dollars in the last year on different digital thermometers. This is the most accurate and quickest food thermometer I've ever used. I didn't want to leave a review until at least a month has passed because every thermometer I've bought for my kitchen crew in the past has broken after a few weeks. This ThermaPro is is so tough it was dropped in the sink and still works perfect. I am only investing in these from now on!

When I pulled it out of the package, the thermometer seemed DOA. A quick tap of the power button shows that the battery is already installed. It is set to save the battery when not in use. It worked without any need to calibrate the thermometer, but I am glad the company gives instructions if you need them.
This is the second one I purchased. My first purchase was immediately regifted to our aunt when my husband praised the quality and needed it for the Thanksgiving turkey. I am vegetarian and only use it to ensure that the water is between 80º and 120º for bread or yogurt. The testing wand is too long for a 1-cup measuring cup, but it works well. It has no clip for keeping it at the correct spot in the water, but the reading is instantaneous. My old

This digital meter works great, has a needle like probe that can easily penetrate food, featured functions work as advertised, I will say it worked differently than I thought, when it says in the description about 3 seconds for a reading, I thought it was exactly that, I would touch something with the probe and it would show a number in 3 seconds, but instead it gradually climbs to the accurate temperature, and THAT takes about 3 seconds, but at least it starts climbing immediately when you probe something. What I like most about this specific product is that the back light comes on automatically with turning it on. They say it’s 100% waterproof, but I am not going to verify that. I like it. Happy with it.

I bought this for my husband (because our original meat thermometer was broken) and he is so happy with it! He watches a lot of cooking shows and they use thermometers like this one so he was anxious to give it a try. He especially loved the bottle opener on the handle, which makes it the ultimate ‘mans grilling accessory’! It reads instantly and the digital screen is bright and easy to see. I also appreicate that it comes with a warranty and a meat temperature guide. Overall, we’re both really happy with this purchase and would confidently recommend it to others!

This Thermometer is a must if you like too barbecue or cook. Its very easy to use and your able to Change the temperature from Celcius to Fahrenheit with ease. The Thermometer itself is water proof so no worry of damaging it and the temperature has a back light too easy to read even in the dark. It also has a bottle opener which comes hand when BBQing outside and having a couple cold ones and has a magnetic side so you can store it on any metal surface or even on a hanger since it also has a hole for hanging.

I had purchased a little cheap food thermometer from the grocery store. It didn't have any numbers just little words on it to say done, well done, etc. It was hard to understand because it was so tiny and I'm not too experienced with cooking so it was a little confusing. I decided to look for a new thermometer and landed on this one. I like that it could stick to my refrigerator because of the magnet, I like that it had a bottle opener, and I like the length and weight of the item. It's not heavy, but it doesn't feel very cheap and too lightweight. I also appreciate the card that came with it to explain the correct cooking temperatures. Since I have started using this thermometer my confidence in cooking has increased tremendously. I have continued to get accurate readings every time I use this, it even

The Thermometer was working well when I was working but now it is lots of having problems. It is only working intermittently and often times shows all 888’s on the thermostat reader. I changed the batteries but I am still having the same issue. I used it less than 10 times. I have a Webber thermometer I bought 5 years ago and it still works fine. If it was reliable I would give it 5 stars.

Update: After writing this review the company immediately contacted me and told me they would send me a new thermometer and that the product had a lifetime warranty. The replacement showed up a couple days later and I couldn’t be happier! Great customer service!

Used this twice. Both times it gave a reading of the meat being at a temp of about 90 degrees when in fact it was done cooking. Followed the directions to recalibrate, still had same results.
We bought this based on the reviews but were very disappointed and returned it.

UPDATE
the customer service is outstanding. They noticed my 1 star review and reached out to me immediately. They refunded the entire cost as well as sent a free replacement. The replacement works much better and gives an accurate temperature reading. The first thermometer must have been defective.
Very happy with the new thermometer!

Have used the Kizen instant read thermometer for the past few months with some mixed results. The thermometer does give an accurate reading and is easy to use. It's also durable and easy to clean. The magnetic backing is also a nice feature as it is easy to stick places and not have to reach to find it. My problem with the Kizen instant read thermometer is that it isn't at all "instant" or even fast. I purchased it knowing I wanted a very fast thermometer so I could probe meat in my smoker and get quick readings while holding the door open. Heat and smoke are precious when cooking and I hate to have to hold the door open longer than necessary so that's why I picked the Kizen - knowing its claim of reading in 2-3 seconds. From my experience, the

I have had a Thermapen for over 20 years and it has been great, but it is starting to fail as it is hard to get a connection as you rotate the pen to turn it on. Therefore, I was looking for either a new Thermapen or alternative. I decided that for the Amazon under $20 price of the Alpha Grillers pen I would give it a try. When it arrived I compared it to the failing Thermapen.

Temperature measurement - at meat temperature (130 degrees) the two pens were within 1 degree of each other. At room temperature (72 degrees) the Alpha Griller pen was accurate, the Thermapen was 3 degrees low.

Timing - both pens got to stabilized readings in about 5 seconds and were within a degree or two of the stabilized readings within 3 seconds. They performed very similarly.

Design - The Thermapen comes in colors and designs. The

While preparing a dish the other day, my Alpha Grillers thermometer failed. It became erratic and I tried pulling the battery to reset the device to no avail. I email support at Alpha Grillers and got an instant response from Sarah who acknowledged their warranty replacement option, which I opted for and within a few days a brand new thermometer was sitting at my doorstep. The new one works as good as the original did before it failed. If you have any reservations about ordering this thermometer...don't as it works great and their customer service is awesome!

Great digital thermometer. I like that when it’s closed, it can’t turn on so I know it won’t drain the batteries accidentally in the drawer. I also like that it takes aaa batteries which are easier to get than button batteries.

I got this for my daughter after she tried making fried chicken with her boyfriend. I have no clue why, but they made it without using a thermometer. I guess that's the thought process of college students. The chicken looked perfect on the outside, but was still raw on the inside. Without even thinking about it, they bit into it. Thank goodness they didn't get sick, but the texts I got from her were hilarious. LOL! As soon as she sent me the pics, I ordered and had this shipped to her. I like that it's magnetic, so she can just stick it to the side of the refrigerator. She likes that it's waterproof and has a bottle opener on it. They made fried chicken again, but used the thermometer. This time it turned out perfect. It's very accurate and reads the temperature very quickly. It seems to be well

Updated: Seller reached out to me and sent me a new product. New item works much better and is as described. Great customer service!!!

Product works, just takes forever to get a reading. Would not describe it as an instant read or even a wait 5-10 second read. It takes a while to get an accurate read, but the screen is large and easily readable. The backlit screen is also a nice touch. The magnet on the back makes it convenient to hang on the fridge. But again, plan on waiting for it to get to the right temp. You’ll be there a while

I have only had this for 5 days but I have used it several times on the grill, in the oven and slow cooker and it is so convient to use! I get the temperature very quickly and I can move on to other things. Directions to calibrate and temps for different kinds of meat are very clear. This is a great product. I even got a second battery in the package.

Nice features. The thermometer turns itself on when the probe is pulled away from the frame and off when it is closed, out of the way. Large, easy to read display - works well in the dark. The handle is nice and large and allows me to extend the probe out over a hot BBQ grill without scorching my hand from the heat. Seems to be well built and constructed - rugged. Reads in 1/10th degree increments, so could even be used for a precise indoor thermometer.

I picked this up to replace a more expensive unit that quit working. You know the one I'm talking about. It's used by my favorite celebrity chef/nerd with the glasses.
Well this thermometer does everything the old one did for half the price. I really like that it turns off when the probe is folded closed. No run down batteries. Large, easy to read screen and accurate. Comes with a magnet to hold it close and folded it fits easily into my jacket pocket.

Best thermometer I’ve had.
I’ve bought so many in the past that didn’t work at all or not very accurate. This one reads from -48f thru 572f. I just got it but it’s very accurate. Read the room temp and my body temp. It turns on and off automatically as you open and close the reader. It has a pointy tip to easily insert in meat. Comfortable for any size hand to hold. Hole for hanging. Came with a battery inserted and an extra one! In the video you can see the temperature change from just touching it.

The thermometer reading is off by approximately 8-9 degrees when compared to two other thermometers. Also, keep getting an error message when following directions to calibrate device.

I received a replacement thermometer and was able to calibrate without a problem. I have now used the new thermometer twice and am very happy with its performance. I also appreciate the quick response from the seller.

My old, thermopro was having issues, and I wanted more than two probes. After research, I settled on this product. It only has the unit which the probes plug into, no second "reader" unit - meaning you will need to have a smartphone with the app. But the range on it is very good! I am able to let my grill run while being one floor under it in the basement, but have no issues with the readings.

It comes with four probes, but has the capability for two more. You at least need one for the grill to see how hot it is running (and it comes with one clipper for grill placement), and then you are left on your own for how many different meats to probe! Each probe setting has an option to be a pre-select temperature, and if food-safety guidelines allow for different cooking then you can

I considered the Soraken vs the iGrill from Weber. I'm happy that I went with the Soraken. It came with more temperature sensors than the iGrill and was half the cost.

Upon receiving the thermometer I checked each sensor in boiling water to make sure that they were calibrated correctly. Each one accurately measured 212F, which gave me confidence from the get go. Set up was easy and the app makes monitoring the temperature of each sensor very handy.

I purchased the thermometer before Thanksgiving and wanted to try it on our 24 pound turkey, which we cooked on the Weber grill. At first I was going to just use two sensors ... one for the thigh and another for the inside temperature of the grill. However, once I realized that I had two additional sensors I decided to use one in each turkey breast. I'm glad I did because it became

This is the second one I am buying, one for summer home one for main residence. I do a lot of meat smoking on the big green egg / Kamado joe and this thing is great for keeping track of the temperatures both inside the dome and the meat. I have put the probes through a few smoking sessions, no issues so far. It actually made me realize that the built in thermometer inside my big green egg needed calibration.

The app is pretty good as well alerts and monitoring work as advertised. The only little wrinkle with the app is this: I haven’t found a way to synchronize it with two units (like in my case). You have to remove the first one in the app to add another one. It’s not really a big deal because pairing is done from the app and takes like 3 seconds, and I

This cooking thermometer is the best I've ever bought! I've bought several over the years and they always seem to break in a few months or stop working. This feels very sturdy and durable and I'm confident it will last a long time. It reads temps very quickly and it's super easy to use. The screen even automatically rotates. I didn't even notice the bottle opener when I purchased it, so that is an added bonus! It also comes with a list of proper temperatures for cooking meat. I will be hanging onto that for sure and use while cooking! At the affordable price, the quality is unmatchable! I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a good food thermometer to buy this product!

I had high hopes for this unit when I purchased it. Unfortunately, I did not get around to using it until after the return period was up, and I have discovered that it was useless, barring the bottle opener. I recalibrated per the included instructions, changed the battery, and still, no good. I thought I was just out of luck on this until I contacted Alpha Grillers. I got a response very quickly stating a replacement would be on the way. Awesome! The replacement arrived quickly, but was a different model. I did not really notice this until I had washed it and was about to stick it into a pork chop. It worked well, but lacked a feature or two of the correct model. I contacted Alpha Grillers again, and they promptly sent ANOTHER correct model replacement! You cannot beat that kind of service!

Whether for an 8lb. prime Rib Roast, Bison Steaks or Chicken on the grill, I over the years have used various analog and digital meat thermometers with varying degrees (no pun intended) of satisfaction....frankly analog are just too slow and while the digital units I have owned and used were quicker to read the temperature of the meat, I have found them to be of varying quality eventually failing or starting to give weird temp readings....then I found this GDEALER thermometer....what an outstanding tool for the grill-master!!! I don't use the voice function (it does work), but what really stands out is the quick (really 1-2 seconds) accurate readings I am getting...I believe it's accuracy is because the temperature sensor is only in the very tip of the probe giving one a reading exactly from where you place the tip of the probe in the meat...not an average temp

While shopping for instant read meat thermometers I ran across the one that speaks and I'm glad I bought this. Being able to read the screen is not always easy and this feature is great! It is truly instant read! If you already have your finger on the button when you insert the probe you don't have to worry about turning the screen towards you. It seems very accurate.

Works well for the price point. You have to be a bit patient as the unit typically takes more than a few seconds to measure peak temp. Reads accurately.

Update: The customer service followup has been outstanding, with the seller offering to replace the unit with a more expensive unit because I wan't fully satisfied. I told them it wasn't necessary, but I'm very impressed with their customer service.

About 3 years ago I saved up and bought a Thermapen for about $100 because the reviews were excellent. I have used it ever since, and love it. But this week I saw an instant(?) thermometer on sale at Amazon for $10.99, and I wanted one for travel. So, I took a chance, and got it yesterday. (Pic below- the new one is red). As soon as I got it I wanted to test the speed and accuracy. I tried it, side by side, on some bread just coming out of the oven. They showed the same temp within a second of each other. Tried it again this morning on boiling water for my tea. Exactly the same temp in exactly the same amount of time. I don't know if it will hold up long-term, but I'm really happy !

I am a big fan of America's Test Kitchen. They do an extensive amount of reviews and testing of kitchen products. One of their reviews was for a meat thermometer. They recommended Thermapen which cost about $100. I little too steep for my budget. One of the reviews on this ThermoPro thermometer was from an owner of the $100 Thermapen and did a direct comparison between the ThermoPro and the Thermapen. They stated their performance (accuracy and speed) was nearly the same. So for a nearly 10 to 1 price difference, I went with the ThermoPro. I was not disappointed. It works great from reading meat temperatures to reading hot oil temps the thermometer works great. I would recommend this thermometer to anyone.

Bought my first one on 6/8 and liked it so much I purchased a separate one for baking on 6/30. Tonight I was trying to take the temperature of my chicken and realized one entire column of ink (lights?) was out. A friend used it this week when he was over so I thought maybe he dropped it so I pulled out my baking one and same thing. An entire column of ink was gone. I'm the only one using that one so I know it wasn't dropped. It's pretty pathetic that both thermometers barely lasted three months. Not worth the money IMO.

I review a lot of instant read thermometers. As you likely know, the Thermopen is the gold standard for accuracy and speed. See my photo to see the Javelin Pro up against the Thermopen and two less expensive brands. Do I like the Javelin just as well? The answer is: Almost. Read on for a more detailed comparison.

I’m an avid BBQ guy and an admitted barbeque junkie. I’ve done very detailed tests on several brands, including the holy grail--the Thermapen. How well does this “Javelin” compete? Very well indeed.

SPEED:
The Javelin is not quite as fast, but faster than the other brands pictured. In real world use, the small speed advantage of the Thermapen, including the newest MK4, does not matter.

ACCURACY?
The Javelin Pro is right on. No wories

FEATURES AND RELIABILITY:
The battery is readily available, inexpensive and easy to change. This is my second Javelin Pro and I have had zero reliability

My last thermometer was a Thermapen. Within 6 months, a piece of rubber gasket between two red plastic shells started popping out. I couldn't fix it so that thermometer wasn't waterproof anymore. So I tried this one. The speed of the temperature reading is as quick, and maybe quicker than the Thermapen, and the quality seems to be identical, except that I haven't had any gasket issues. If I ever were to buy another instant read thermometer, whether for myself or another person, I would buy this one.

Small, light, easy to use, can be used in either hand. It has a back-light and with a flick of the wrist it will come on. It has a magnet making it easy to stick to the side of an appliance for a quick grab and test. It will display in F or C as you prefer. If you REALLY need the accuracy, you can toggle it to show 1/10th degrees.
One thing left to point out; the probe's tip it very sharp. I carefully keep it pointed in any direction except towards me when I have it open and not in the item being checked. So far I haven't stabbed myself.

Over all I like the unit.

Pros:
1. It is accurate and works well. I tested it with boiling, tepid, and cold water against my expensive analog thermometer. No variance between leads.
2. Never lost connection and was easy to use. I got 250 feet no problem.
3. Lost connection alarm
3. Great length of leads. They are plenty long.
4. Stainless braided leads.
5. Batteries included!?!?!? (YES!)
6. Durable without being heavy. No need to worry about knocking it off a table or such.

Neutral:
1. Configuration is OK. Not hard but, not Intuitive. But if you read the instructions and made it past 6th grade you will have no problems.
2. Shape of the sensor leads. The crook is in there... Yeah... Humm. You need to turn them away from the grill to keep them from touching the grill. Strait would have been better, but I am sure they have some

This worked perfectly when it first arrived, and I absolutely loved it, but I waited several months before writing a review to see how it held up over time. I hand wash the probes after each use and never immerse them in water, but after 6 months and about 10 uses, one of the probes started giving readings 50-60 degrees below actual temp. I made this purchase because the description said there was a lifetime warranty on the probes, but there is no answer when I call the Customer Service number listed in the manual. Trying email now, still waiting for a response.....Update 7/30/18. Seller replaced the faulty probe within a week of sending an email to customer service. Upgrading review to 4 stars because I love the thermometer when the probes work and the seller honored the warranty, but I am disappointed at how quickly the probes go

This thermometer is absolute garbage. I am an avid BBQ'er so I use my thermometer regularly. With that being said, it is imperative that my probes work accurately. I have had to contact customer service on several occasions due to a faulty probe. The first time it would not read and the second time it would have instant temperature variations of +-50 degrees (I cook on a Kamado grill which has a dome thermometer as well and I'm usually hovering around 225-275 depending what I'm cooking). These issues basically make this product unusable to say the least!

I will say this! Their customer service is fine! I reached out to them and they sent me a new probe which lasted 2 weeks haha. SO if you like dealing with customer service and if you are in the market for an inexpensive thermometer and do

This thermometer is very FAST, accurate and very easy to use. Calibration feature is handy, although mine was right on the money out of the box. I don't see any reason to spend more on a different thermometer. I particularly like the sharp tip on the end of the probe which easily penetrates the food without any need to push very hard like some other units.

For years I was using an old thermometer that I was not sure even worked. I was right! The first time using my new thermometer, I compared with the old one and was surprised how easy it was to use, how clear it was to see and how efficient it was! What was I waiting for? Thank you!

Amazing until it got wet. Definitely not waterproof at all. Ruined.

I’ve already gone through a few different digital thermometers over the last 20 years. The reviews had a couple of complaints about the true temp, so I checked the calibration. The #1 was exactly 32 degrees exactly. #2 was off, it registered 35 degrees. I am fine with this because I normally use only one probe at a time. I do wish it had a calibration mode, but it doesn’t. You just place the probes in iced water for 10 minutes, then make sure the probe isn’t touching any glass for at least a minute. The temp should be at 32 degrees if correct.

I rarely write a review, but this thermometer is awesome and so is their customer service. After 6 months, I validated its temperature gauge by putting the probe in boiling water and it immediately read 210 degrees and 212 degrees within about 30 seconds. I've bought a few meat thermometers in my life, and this TP17 is by far has been the most accurate.
Additionally, after about 8 months, the audio alert seemed to stop alerting (but the lights continued to flash) when my meat reached its desired temperature. I called customer service to figure out how to turn the audio back on, and literally within 2-3 minutes, they answered, said there was something wrong with the device, and they would send me a new thermometer in 2-4 days. They didn't ask for a return, just needed to verify I had bought the device and that the same

I used this digital meat thermometer for the first time to aid myself in smoking BBQ ribs to perfection and this tool exceed my expectations. For my first time with this tool I smoked chicken leg quarters and pork ribs to absolute perfection. My photographs speak for themselves. The unit itself is solid and easy to use with a bright BLUE illumined background that displays the temperature threshold you set plus the temperature of the actual probes. When the temperature threshold is met an audible alarm will sound reminding you that you meat has reached the desired internal temperature. There are 2 independent temperature probes perfect for if you are cooking 2 different cuts of meat together or if you want to measure the temp of the inside of the meat and the temperature of the inside of your smoker, oven, or grill. The temperature probe wires are special wires
