100% Positive Reviews


Pros: REALLY fast, good size

Cons: none

Love my Thermapen. In fact I loved it so much I sent one to my Dad. I use it for BBQ/Smoking/grilling and the wife uses it for Baking. Seems VERY solid and Very quick. good stuff.


Pros: Very Fast Reading, Splash-Proof, Sauce Proof, 0.1° F Resolution

Cons: Price ($

ThermoWorks has been making the Thermapen for over 20 years (in the U.K.). I started off with the old grey model back when that was all that they offered. The old models were just as accurate as the current ones, but the took 3 - 5 seconds for the temp reading to stabilize out. The current Thermapens come in a variety of colours and, although the manufacturer states that you will get a reading in 3 seconds, I have had the current model for about 3 years and find that I always get a stabile reading in about a second-and-a-half. Another great feature of this device is that only the end 1/4" of the probe measures the temperature... so you can move the probe through a piece of meat and read temperature fluctuations at all depths up to about 6". You can read all of the specs at the ThermoWorks website. ( ) I highly recommend the  Super-Fast Thermapen.


Pros: pretty quik reading

Cons: havnt found any

have had mine for 3 or 4 years.....never had a problem with it. only gave it 4 stars because ive never used any others.


i use mine for grilling mostly.

ThermoWorks Thermapen Instant Read Thermometer

The Super-Fast Thermapen has been a favorite among restaurant chains, health inspectors and quality managers worldwide. Hundreds of thousands are in use. The clever fold-away probe and the simple pocket design replace more costly and bulky handheld thermometers while using the same professional thermocouple technology. This new generation Thermapen introduces a robust, splash-proof design with molded-in seals to protect the thermometer from wet hands and kitchen splashes. SPEED & ACCURACY - Even more accurate than before and slightly faster! Our proprietary circuit yields accuracies better than ±0.7¡F. That includes all errors! (many competitors don't include the probe error in their spec.) Each unit comes with a NIST-Traceable certificate of calibration showing test results for the individual thermometer. Resolution is now 0.1¡ over the full range. Improvements in the probe technology now yield a blazing fast speed of 3 seconds to a full temperature reading. NO CABLES! - The components most likely to fail in a commercial thermometer are the cable and its connector. Also, the typical handheld meter and probe combination requires two hands. What do you do with the cable when you're through with it? The competition want you to wrap it around the meter, which is time consuming and a natural trap for grime and bacteria! The one-handed Thermapen eliminates frayed cables, snags, germ traps and wasted time while freeing your second hand. SIMPLE OPERATION - Just open the probe and the Thermapen comes on. Close it and it shuts off. No buttons or switches to catch germs, confuse staff and cause errors. Configuration settings in the battery compartment allow management to easily set the Thermapen for ¡C or ¡F, read in tenths or whole degrees (0.1¡ or 1¡), and disable the auto-off for continuous readings till the probe is closed. Although likely to never be needed, a calibration trim button fine-tunes the unit calibration at a single temperature such as an ice-bath.
