ThermoPro TP-01H Instant Read Food Thermometer

Share on:
ThermoPro TP-01H Instant Read Food Thermometer
The ThermoPro TP-01H is an inexpensive food thermometer with good performance and the features you’d expect at this price point.
 
The thermometer itself is quite small. Its case is not sealed against moisture, and the battery box is vulnerable to leakage. There is an on/off switch that doubles as the °C/°F selector. There is a lock button that captures the current temperature, eliminating the need to read the display while in the food (you can pull the probe out and the temperature remains locked). A backlight button illuminates the display for 15 seconds. The unit will shut itself off automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity. Accuracy is good as is the response time. The probe is adequately long for nearly all uses.
 
The temperature display is on the small side, something that might matter to someone whose vision is compromised. The display does not rotate when the thermometer is oriented for left-handed use.
 
The construction of this unit leaves a bit to be desired. Water ingress would be a problem if it gets wet. On the other hand, it costs $13.
 
Properly cared for, this thermometer will provide good performance at a low price. Manufacturer’s contact info is found in the accompanying documentation and the one-year warranty is extendable to three years with product registration.

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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.
