PlaceholderTaylor Pro 9842N
This is an inexpensive thermometer that has good accuracy and modest performance. It cannot be left in the oven while cooking. It features the basic controls: on/off and F/C. The response time is on the slow side for a quick-read thermometer at 17 seconds. There is a control to allow you to calibrate the unit in an ice bath should it drift over time. The manufacturer's contact info... Read More

PlaceholderThermoPro TP-03A Instant Read Thermometer Review
The ThermoPro TP-03A is an inexpensive folding-type instant read thermometer with decent response times and good accuracy. It cannot be left inserted in food in a cooker.   The thermometer has a button that releases the spring-loaded probe, much like a switchblade knife. The manufacturer suggests completely opening the probe before use, and the probe locks into place when fully... Read More

PlaceholderWeber 9815 - Dial-type Thermometer
This in-oven/in-meat dial thermometer is an accurate but slow-to-respond unit that will work fine for its intended purpose, but will not double as an instant-read thermometer. It is intended to be inserted into the grill/smoker or food while it is cooking. Under these conditions, the response time doesn't matter, and this thermometer will work well as a low-cost alternative to a... Read More

PlaceholderMaverick ET-71 Remote Wireless Cooking Thermometer
This inexpensive single-probe remote thermometer has reasonable accuracy and acceptable response times. It lacks a backlight. The user sets the temperature at which he/she wants the alarm to go off. When that temperature is reached, a beeper will sound and the temperature readout will blink. There is a temperature readout on both the transmitter and the receiver. There is no apparent...

PlaceholderTaylor Connoisseur 518
This is an inexpensive probe with good accuracy and reasonable response time. It cannot be left in the oven while cooking. The probe opens from the bottom like a folding pocketknife. The ergonomics are good, as is the readability of the display, especially with the large digits and the bright blue backlighting. It can be operated in a straight temperature readout mode or you can select... Read More

PlaceholderThermoPro TP-16 Digital Thermometer
The ThermoPro TP-16 is a single-channel food thermometer with good accuracy at a good price. The manufacturer advises that the thermometer is not designed to be used as an oven thermometer because accuracy is not guaranteed above 200º F or 93º C. The unit is not waterproof and should not be used in the rain. The unit has a temperature measurement function and a down counter timer. When... Read More

PlaceholderWeber 6419 Digital Pocket Thermometer
This inexpensive thermometer has good accuracy and reasonable response time. It cannot be left in the oven while cooking. The unit samples every 10 seconds in normal mode, but if the ON/FAST button is held down, it will sample every 2 seconds. (The fast mode was used to measure the temperature change rate here.) There is a MAX and MIN capture which can be reset by the user. The auto-off... Read More

PlaceholderThermoWorks PT1438 Dial Thermometer
The ThermoWorks PT1438 Dial Thermometer has good accuracy and a long probe for in-oven/in-food measurements. It can be calibrated by adjusting a nut on the back side of the dial. We don't typically wax enthusiastic over bi-metal dial thermometers, but this one works well enough. It has a wide temperature range and would work well if stuck into a large roast. Unlike a digital... Read More

PlaceholderThermoWorks RT600B Waterproof Digital Thermometer
The ThermoWorks RT600B is an accurate thermometer that is splash-resistant, but its response time is too slow to be used as an instant-read tool. It cannot be left in the oven/grill while cooking. There are two virtually identical units from ThermoWorks: the RT600B and the RT600C. Don't confuse them! The B unit is relatively slow to respond, but has a wider temperature range. The C...

PlaceholderBBQube 5X family of probes
BBQube makes a line of replacement probes for the Maverick ET-732/733 family of remote food thermometers. The manufacturer advertises the probes as being five times faster to respond to temperature changes than the OEM probes that come with the Maverick units. However, the Maverick thermometers only sample the probe output at about 11 second intervals, so we were unable to test this... Read More

PlaceholderPolder THM-379 Stable-Read Thermometer
This instant-read thermometer has spotty accuracy but very rapid response time. It also has an irritating "hold" feature that makes reading it iffy. It cannot be left in the oven while cooking. It has an auto-off feature that will power down the thermometer after 10 minutes. There is no backlight. One of my pet peeves with thermometers is the predictive readout. Instead of... Read More

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.
