Favorite Meat/Cooking Thermometer?

seems we don't buy anything without checking the forum hive mind first!

my meat thermometer took a nose dive into the dishwater and all the rice in the world couldn't save it. it was one of those digital swing-out probe types. i've gone through two of those in the last two years according to my Amazon order history. i've also had a leave-in digital one from Aldi that i quite like until i melted the probe. (note to self - be REALLY careful how you place it when broiling!)

anyone here have a digital fav?

my goodness - you surely are mistaking me for someone who is deeply into cooking! thanks but a bit pricey for my budget.

If you want the BEST, it’s Thermapen... yes, they’re spendy, but for a reason - they’re the best!

Switch to Sous Vide cooking. You won't need a thermometer.

For Christmas dinner I bought a "Sur la Table Probe Thermometer by Taylor". Was $20. It has a wire from the probe which runs out the door of the oven to the display unit. It was an impulse purchase, and I have no idea how accurate it is, but I really like the idea of not having to open the oven to check the temperature.

The exact one I got isn't on their web site, but this one appears to use the same display unit:

My only problem with it was that it's supposed to have an option to set a specific temperature (where the alarm goes off). I was unable to get this feature to work. I could only set it for pre-programmed temperatures like "Beef-Rare". Which reminds me that I need to check on that.


Good luck.

ps: Just checked my thermometer again. This time I was able to get it into the custom mode to set a specific temperature. It uses a touch screen, and maybe I had a wet finger, or was in too much of a hurry, at Christmas. Anyway, it seems to work fine now.

Weber 6492 Original Instant-Read Thermometer [www.amazon.com]

EDIT: first one lasted about 3 years, then it was glitchy. I got another one on sale for $7 a few weeks ago. I check these with ice and boiling water. Spot on.

Thermopop for sure. Way cheaper than Thermopen and almost as good.

The Marshalls, Ross, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Tuesday Morning, etc., types of stores seem to periodically have some reasonable priced offerings.

Hi everyone,

I have a basic digital model that costs about $10.00 or so. Bought it in 2008 or so. Been dandy. It's similar to these:

If I was a pro cook, I might buy an uber expensive ultra accurate to the nth degree model. For my purposes, a cheap basic one is more than sufficient.
