"instant" read thermometer

  1. i've narrowed my search down to two models

    The ES432 Ultra-Fast Water Resistant Pen Shape Stem Thermometer

    or the thermoworks

    RT600C Super-fast Water-resistant Digital Pocket Thermometer

    does anybody have any experience with either? Reviews on amazon are about the same wondering if anybody here has any opinion on either?

  2. Thermapen is the way I went...very accurate, durable...they occasionally offer open box sales....

    I have a couple of CDN instant reads that are very accurate but a little slow, 6-10 second response time and a Thermapen that has a 3 second response time. I like the response time of the Thermapen but it is big and hard to open. I still find myself grabbing my favorite CDN just because of it's ease of use. I can usually wait that extra 4 or 5 seconds!
  5. i emailed them to get on their list, i'll have to try and grab one when on sale. for now i may go the CDN route as advised by S2k

     I'd go with the RT600C based on the quality of the Thermapen. Gotta figure they're made by the same company so odds are it's a quality product.

    Check out the EXTECH 39272. I have been having mine for a few years now and at Half the cost of Therma pen.

    Works Great.
