Highly rated kitchen thermometer on Amazon with over 1000 reviews with an average rating of 4.9/5 stars. - Discombobulated

The previous frontpage deals we've featured were for Open Box models so this is pretty good for a brand new unit. For an in-depth review of this thermometer, head over to The Kitchn.

±0.7°F (±0.4°C) from -58 to 392°F (-49.9 to 199.9°C), ±1.8°F (±1.0°C) from 392 to 572°F (200 to 299.9°C)

Firstly, almost all cooking is done in the first range given, I can't think of one time I've cooked something that needed to be over 200C. Meat temperatures are all in the 130-165F range and that's really where you'd want to use this thermometer anyway.

You should also note that you've decided this is a 3.6 F swing, when statistically speaking, that's not really true. What the absolute error means is that 99%+ of all measurements will be within 0.7 F of the actual temperature, or within 1.8F at high temp, which we've already established is not where you'd use this thermometer anyway.

Yes, there are cheaper thermometers available, clearly. They either won't be as fast as this, won't be as accurate, or a combination of both. The reason you pay more for this is because it's the fastest and most accurate available, and to some people, that's important. If you're not serious about cooking / bbq / brewing / etc... then you can probably just use the cheaper alternatives and be perfectly happy.

Try to remember, this is a deal site, and this post is a good deal for this product. Not all products are interesting to everyone. If it's not for you, move along.

And no, I'm not an employee of the company and I don't care if you buy it, I'm just trying to educate those who might be interested in something like this.

I couldn't go back after owning this one.

Once u own a thermapen u wonder how u ever made it without one, wish it was a backlit model (it's hard to read at night) but still a good price for a great food thermometer. The magnetic case that glows in the dark ($11) also protects the thermometer from wear and tear because u can stick it to a cool part of the grill while cooking and store it on the fridge when not in use.
If u cook a lot of steaks or are a hunter and cook wild game, this thermometer is an investment that will save you from overcooking your hard earned pricey meat

I have one for brewing and grilling. All I've ever heard was 'you can't live without it'. It's accurate, sure, but doesn't seem to be anything special. There are many great alternatives for 1/5 the price.

This is the best thermometer on the market. I highly recommend this device if your a self proclaimed chef, weekday night super mom or even an experienced professional. The regular price is 96.00 however today Americas test kitchen along with Huffington Post is sponsoring a sale for 76.80. It still seems like a hefty price tag but these devices rarely go on sale and when they do it is usually only 10% off. The last deal I saw was of refurbished models. These are brand new for 76.80. If youre like me then you know the frustration that terrible food thermometers can cause. Ive tried all the box stores less expensive instruments however eventually they fail. Either they break or become inaccurate. Buy this insta read thermapen today and youll never have that issue again. Amazing quialty and accuracy.

GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY SLICKDEALIN
ATK REVIEW:
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - WINNER
Splash-Proof Super-Fast Thermapen

An instant-read thermometer ensures success in the kitchen by taking the guesswork out of knowing when foods are done. It's vital when cooking steaks or beef roasts to a specific doneness (rare, medium-rare, etc.), ensuring a perfectly cooked chicken or pork, or guaranteeing precisely baked breads and desserts.

The main benefit is not only that its more accurate than a $10 thermometer, it's also 4x faster than those cheap thermometers. Accurate reading in about 3 seconds. It also measures temp from the very tip of the probe, instead of a quarter inch up like other cheap thermometers.

If you cook a lot, it is absolutely worth it.

I just started searching for this a week or so ago so I don't know how the prices have varied over time. How's this sale compared to other sales during the year? I guess they'd have something for July 4th or black friday. Will the prices be lower then or this is about as good as it gets during the year?
Thanks

I've been watching these for at least a couple years and know that this is the lowest price I've seen in that time for a new one. I've seen some open box deals but don't think they were even this low.

Personally I use the Thermopop from ThermoWorks which is pretty good and 1/3 the price, however you give up the benefits of this device. Mainly much faster reading times which are pretty important when baking, grilling or smoking. This helps maintain the temperature in whatever you are cooking in much better than a thermometer that takes 10-15 seconds to read the temp.

I've used my father in law's Thermapen and there really isn't a comparison. Fast and accurate. As another poster mentioned, it's an investment but this thing is RARELY discounted so I thought it'd be a good Slick deal as it's prompted me to pull the trigger.

Accurate???
?1.8?F (=3.6?F swing) is not all that accurate for $80 - I think the people promoting this must all own a piece of the company. Pure marketing hype.

I have the version with the infrared temp gauge as well.

I use this thing all the time for cooking and brewing. One of my favorite purchases. The speed and accuracy of this are worth the extra cost compared to the cheapo ones.
