Was about to pull the trigger on this, but we don't cook a lot of meat so I am wondering how often it would get used.

can be used for more than meat. Are the potatoes done? How hot is that water? mmm baked apples with brown sugar and cinnamon.

I've got the Thermo Pop on sale for $26 (currently $34) Use it daily.

Sign up for the Thermoworks newsletter/emails. They will probably put the ThermoPop on sale at some point (holiday shopping?) Save money, it's still a fairly expensive thermometer.

Thermapen® is nice stuff, but there are plenty of thermometers that will do the job, for a lot less dough.
Thermapen will calibrate the thermometer for you, but for <~$25 you can get something similar that you can calibrate yourself, and will perform just as well. Basically, unless you're a 3 or 4 Michelin Star Chef, or a total kitchen klutz, it's not gonna make a lot of difference.... a decent (less expensive), properly calibrated thermometer will be, at worst, within 1° of the Thermapen. If you're klutz, and can't calibrate a thermometer, and/or know/tell that it's off; ante up for a Thermapen. If your cooking is so tight, that you have to be as spot on as possible; ante up for a Thermapen. For the masses in between, one of these best sellers (or similar) will do just fine.

Assuming one wants or needs to calibrate such a device, what is used as the control/standard?

must suffer with him.

by believing all possible evil of evil men.

Ice water and boiling water. I think it even says so in the instructions. I have a Thermoworks which is only slightly slower to read than the Thermapen and costs a fraction of the price.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Wow, thank you for that.

It never would have occurred to me.

$75 is a little rich for my blood.

The folding feature of the pen is nice, and...



Bez-O-Rama has this clone of Buzz's Alpha Grillers in basic black, for $19 + tax.

::sigh::

Me so weak.

My sister got me a Thermopen, for my custard (ice cream making) and fermenting/sourdough mostly. I don’t cook or eat meat.

I've got one for BBQ, too, but it's got the Blue tooths! Very handy to have the probe in the meat on the grill and watch the temp from inside the house.
