Why is it a good deal?

A great thermometer takes the guesswork out of cooking, and anything that makes mealtime easier is a plus in our book. No professional or home cook should be without one, especially now that it's just $10 — that's over 50% off (the lowest we've seen it since 2022). Think of the meat — which isn't cheap! — you've had to throw out because it was inedible. With this bad boy, you'll achieve perfect results every time while saving money and reducing waste. Plus, you'll get a lot of use out of it, even beyond carnivorous cuisine.

Why do I need this?

The ThermoPro Digital Meat Thermometer has a 3.9-inch probe with a high-precision sensor for ultra-fast readings — we're talking mere seconds to ensure your steak doesn't turn into rubber while you're waiting to see the temperature. It features a range of –58°F to 572°F (about –50°C to 300°C) and an easy-to-read backlit LCD display.

Keep it on the fridge (it has a built-in magnet) or use the attached hook to hang it up. And don't worry about draining the battery (it takes one AAA — included!); the thermometer automatically shuts down after 10 minutes of inactivity.

It's also a versatile little gadget; you can use it to properly gauge the doneness of breads and cakes, or check the temperature of coffee, milk, cold beverages and even candy.

What reviewers say

With tens of thousands of five-star ratings, this is a gadget you can count on.

Says one excited five-star fan: "Clever: I like the hideaway feature of the temperature probe. It didn’t need a cover, and I cannot lose the cover. Quick: The probe pops out quickly and reads temps from any angle. Now I don’t have to put my hand near the heat. Dangerous: I feel like a ninja getting ready for battle when I pop the probe out from its secret hiding spot. Look out, ya’ll, the world is not big enough for this warrior."

"Professional chef here," wrote another satisfied shopper. "Everything like a cake or bread could be tested, and you can cook with confidence and precision. Great design and no fuss. Seems like it will last as well ... Exactly what I was looking for."

"I have been using this for a while now," shared a third home cook. "The readings match two different thermometers brought over by friends and have made my cooking much more accurate. I thought I'd use it primarily for roasts and steaks, but I now use it to test doneness on sourdough loaves, checking water temperature for yeast starter and even double checking room temperature in various areas of the house to check my home thermostat. The greatest feature is the magnet on the back, which means I keep this right on the door of my fridge."

"This thermometer is perfect!" added a final fan. "Accurate to the 0.1 decimal immediately in boiling water after many years of use. Also love how easy it folds and opens, the magnet for putting on the fridge or grill, love the backlight screen and the handy temperature chart on the back. ... The only complaint I have is they have the pork temp way too done for my liking."

It's pretty rare for a product to be this adaptable, accurate and affordable. Well done!

One thing this thermometer can't do? Tell the temperature of shell-on eggs. But that's what the NobleEgg is for!

This adorable gizmo takes the guesswork out of preparing perfect hard-, medium- and soft-boiled eggs — just place it in the pot of water with your eggs, and it'll change color to indicate which stage they're at!
