ThermoPro TP-07 Remote Food Thermometer Review

ThermoPro TP-07 Remote Food Thermometer Review

The ThermoPro TP-07 is a single-channel wireless remote food thermometer with good accuracy at a good price. Both the transmitter and receiver are surrounded with a rubber shell that would protect the unit from damage if dropped. The manufactuer claims a 300 foot range, or about 90 meters. Neither unit is waterproof. 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 an up or down counter timer. The display will slowly flash blue as the temperature rises while cooking. When the temperature rises to within 15º F of the target temp, the blue will change to green to alert the cook that the food is nearly done. When the target temperature is reached, the green will turn to red and an audible alert will sound.

A count-up or count-down timer with a 24 hour limit can be set. In the count-down mode, an alarm will sound when it times out. The timer can run in the background while monitoring food temperature.

Target temps can be selected by choosing the type of meat and the desired degree of doneness. These adhere to USDA standards. Alternatively, the user can select any temperature she or he desires.

Temperature accuracy is good in the food temp range and acceptable outside it. The probe has a 4″ (10cm) straight section, then a bend. This limits the probe depth to the length of the straight part, but that should be deep enough for most purposes. Like nearly all food temp probes, this one cannot be submerged or put in a dishwasher. Careful hand cleaning that prevents water from getting into the probe is required.

The unit will sound an alert for one minute if a signal from the transmitter is not received for 30 minutes, and then it will shut down. There is no other mechanism for alerting signal loss, a potentially serious fault. The unit will also shut down if the temperature stays below 122º F (50º C) for two hours.

The manufacturer’s contact information, including telephone number and e-mail address, is found in the owner’s manual. The unit is covered by a 90 day warranty.

There is a lot to like about this unit: price, ruggedness and performance. Its one drawback is the failure to annunciate signal loss from the transmitter. I’m giving it a Silver Medal; if it handled signal loss better, I would have given it a Gold.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
