A substantial, portable meat thermometer you won't lose.
January 4, 2019
I have used many different thermometers in the kitchen, and this is the one for me. It's very substantial, and the bright red color stands out when you're looking around for it. I love that it turns itself on and off when you fold the probe out or back in because I don't have to touch the controls and get the face of it greasy.
As a lefty, I love that the display flips over when I use it with my left hand. I like that the display is large and easy to read. I love that the battery compartment is easy to access. And I love that it gets to temperature quickly. They promise 2-3 seconds and in my experience it might be 4. Still, that's plenty fast and I don't burn my hand waiting as I do with the old-style analog gauges. The bottle opener is unnecessary but also provides a hanging hook, and the magnet inside means you can stick it on the fridge to keep it handy. There's even a temperature scale on the back for assessing doneness.
This is a well-conceived, well-made device that I will use a lot. Thanks, Kizen!
