Thermapen Instant Read Thermometers

Just picked up a thermapen thermometer. Extremely accurate read within 3 seconds. Accurate to within one degree. Very expensive though. Saw one of these on Alton Brown's Good Eats. Here is the link if anyone is interested.

Nope got mine legit through the mail. My condolences to Ritch for his loss though. Kind of hard to lose though. I got a little case for mine that I can wear on my belt. These thermometers are big, bright and very cool. I love how the probe folds back in. Kind of reminds me of a pocket knife in that regards.

All this talk is about to make me order one. This is a rough crowd to hang with. I think I'll have another shot of Jamison, salute a free Ireland, and give this some more thought.

Got mine in the mail today. Turns out USPS Priority Mail takes five days to Alaska. BTW my cocktail (Beefeaters on the rocks) is currently at 27 degrees.

Got my Super Fast yellow and my EcoTemp today. I ordered the EcoTemp with 3 oven probes so I can use 3 probes with 1 unit to measure meat temps. I was having trouble with my NuTemp and not real happy with it.
