In our Guide to Backyard Cooking, Shawn Blanc said the ThermoWorks Thermapan thermometer is the very best instant read thermometer. ThermoWorks has a new model out that they are calling the Mk4.
It has a auto rotating display, motion-sensing sleep & wake model, intelligent backlight, waterproof design, 3,000 hour battery life, and still includes 3 second readings. One neat change is that it now comes in 10 different colors.
If you’ve got some Christmas money to spend, check out the Thermapen Mk4. You can buy it direct from Thermoworks for $99.
