PlaceholderThermoWorks MicroTherma 2K with 303-159 Probe
The ThermoWorks MicroTherma 2K is a high-accuracy unit that accepts any K-type thermocouple sensor. It comes with a high price tag. It has excellent accuracy and a quick response time with the kit probe, one that cannot be left in the oven/grill. However, since any K-type probe can be plugged into this unit, it can double as an in-food/in-cooker thermometer as well as a rapid-read hand-... Read More

This solidly-built, full-featured thermometer and probe are built to last in environments that would ruin most equipment. Accuracy is excellent. It has all the features except for a very quick response time. The maximum temperature is 302ºF (150ºC) which might limit its functionality for some users. It cannot be left in the oven/grill while cooking, and no in-food/in-cooker probes are... Read More

PlaceholderThermoWorks Reference Thermapen
This high-accuracy temperature probe is designed to be used as a temperature reference instrument more than as a food thermometer, although it can be employed that way if you're really particular about temperatures. (You should seek professional help!) This Thermapen is accurate to 0.07ºF, and I use it to set up all my calibration tests here at AmazingRibs.com. It has mediocre response... Read More

PlaceholderMeater Block Food Thermometer Review
The Meater Block from Apption Labs is a novel approach. While most competing products employ temperature probes tethered to a transmitter by a braided wire, the Meater builds the transmitter and battery to power it into the probe itself. This results in a truly wireless interface with a fairly large diameter probe with a narrower operating temp range.   The Meater comes in... Read More

PlaceholderThermoWorks BlueTherm Probe
The BlueTherm probe must be used with a Bluetooth device to measure and record temperatures. It can be used with a desktop/laptop that has Bluetooth capability, or a smart device such as an Android or Apple phone or tablet. Software to control and read the device is free and downloadable from Thermoworks or your device's app store. Don't plan on leaving this probe in food... Read More

The ThermoPro TP-02S is a hand-held, quick-read thermometer. It features a long 5.375" (13.6cm) probe with a narrow tip to improve response times.   This thermometer has excellent accuracy and fairly good response times. It doesn't rate up there with the fastest units, but at seven seconds, it's not bad.   The overall build quality is only fair but the price is less than $7,... Read More

PlaceholderPolder THM-570 Grill Surface Thermometer
This unusual thermometer is designed to be placed on a grill to determine cooking temperature. It is reasonably accurate but has no Celsius scale. There are markings for temperature ranges for grilling and for searing. We were not able to verify the higher ranges of its scale due to limitations of our test facilities.

1) Please try the table of contents or the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different than your membership login.
