Product description

The Super-Fast Thermapen has become a favourite among restaurants, gourmet chef's / cooks and food quality managers worldwide. Literally thousands are in use everyday around the world. The clever foldaway probe and the simple pocket design replaces the more costly and bulky handheld thermometers and probes while using the same professional thermocouple technology. This new generation Thermapen features a robust, splash-proof design with waterproof seals to protect the thermometer from wet hands and kitchen mishaps. The SuperFast Thermapen thermometer incorporates the "Biomaster" additive that reduces bacteria growth and the ergonomic rubber seal reduces the risk of the ingress of water, dust or food. As well as being water resistant, it is still 'probably' the fastest reading contact thermometer on the market today. The SuperFast Thermapen thermometer incorporates a reduced tip, stainless steel, food penetration probe that conveniently folds back through 180 degrees into the side of the instrument when not in use. Numerous test kitchens and professional chef's have tested the Superfast Thermapen with amazing results - the SuperFast thermometer reaches 100% of the test temperature in under four seconds. The SuperFast Thermapen incorporates a larger digital display with a precise read-out of temperature over the range of -49.9 to 299.9°C with a 0.1°C resolution and an accuracy of ±0.4°C over the range of -49.9 to 199.9°C, thereafter ±1°C. Both low battery (icon) and open circuit indication are also displayed, when applicable. Each Thermapen is powered by two lithium coin cell batteries (supplied) with a minimum life expectancy of 1,500 hours.

Simply Amazing,
Used for a BBQ over 2 years ago to ensure everything was cooked.
Been using it sooo much since, So helpful to check all types of meat.
Ensure you clean the probe if the meat is not cooked to avoid cross-contamination.

Have you ever tried making fudge? I have! I quickly discovered that you really need to have an accurate thermometer! Well, I have now! No more toffee sauce for us (unless we want it). This thermometer is super easy to use, just open the probe and it's working. Close it down and it's off. It is so easy to wipe clean. It is really easy to read the very clear read-out.

The bottom line is that I can now make super fudge, every time. That's how good the thermometer is. Does that make sense? Oh yeah! It's very good at getting the temperature of lots of other things - baby's milk, roast turkey, jam, middle of cake while still cooking, front room, inside of fridge etc etc etc

I have bought one of these for mew and several others as presents. Mine has been excellent in terms of resilience.

I did not own the previous version but I make regular use of this one and it is kept in a utensil drawer where it gets a fair amount of knocking and being bashed around. Maybe I am just lucky but there is no damage to mine nor to the others that I have bought as presents.

It is quick and accurate - my cooking especially for meat has improved markedly since I started to make regular use of it!

I bought the Thermapen after much research on instant read thermometers.
It fully fills my requirements! It's a great product.

Unfortunately mine was dead on arrival but the nice persons at ETI swiftly replaced it for a new one.
They even paid for the packaging although I ordered from Sweden.

Quick readings - takes perhaps 5 seconds to stabilise. Clear digits. It powers off itself after a little while or when you snap the probe tip back into the slot in the handle - one of these has gone over a year without needing a new battery. The probe is nice and sharp so you can get it into even a joint of meat without any trouble, or a tart without making too much of a mess of the crust. The probe is also a continuous stainless steel piece so it's easy to keep clean.

It comes with a calibration certificate [0 and 100 C], and a handy reference sheet with the temperatures for rare/medium/well done beef/poultry/fish etc. Of course, once you let a joint of meat rest the internal temperature will continue to rise for a while, so you still need to play it by ear a little.

I find it's useful for meat joints, getting water at 85 C to brew coffee, checking reheated dishes are up to temp without having to jam a finger into the middle, and keeping an eye on the accuracy of a sous vide setup. I noticed the commercial canteen at work uses these same ones to check trays of food are at bio-safe temperatures.
