The Kizen Digital Meat Thermometer will ensure that you'll never have to stress about too-rare or too-dry foods again. Just poke it into your dinner-to-be and you'll have a temperature readout in three seconds. Use it for making medium-rare steaks, properly cooked poultry, or satisfyingly seared salmon. But not only that; you can also use the Kizen to test frying oil, gauge the done-ness of casseroles and desserts and more without the guesswork. And oh yeah: It's waterproof and super easy to clean!

It's not just for hot foods, either: It can read temps from −58 to 572 degrees via its backlit LCD display. (Prefer your temp readings in Celsius? Done, with the press of a button.) There's also a handy chart with popular cooking temperatures displayed right on the unit. And oh yeah: It automatically shuts off after 10 minutes to save battery life.

The Kizen Digital Meat Thermometer has a retractable probe for easy storage in a drawer, but it also has a magnetic back and hanging loop, so you can stick it on your fridge or display it proudly on the side of your grill

"An instant-read thermometer is a must for anyone grilling or cooking meat, poultry or fish," said one happy customer. "This is the secret to not overcooking! The best food thermometer I have ever owned. Would definitely recommend it to my friends or anyone looking to purchase a thermometer. Good value too!"

Another reviewer was impressed with how quickly the readings appeared. "Worked as expected and came with an extra battery. Took seconds to reach a stable temperature."

A thermometer like this is perfect to have on hand for grilling to get those steaks and burgers just right. It's also a must-have for cooking turkeys, rib roasts and more over the holidays.

"This thing rocks!" raved a shopper. "I’ve been cooking without one of these my whole 63 yr old life. My granddaughter wanted one, so I ordered an extra for myself. Las night I was cooking some pork and after the recommended cooking time, checked internal temp. PERFECT. But I know if I hadn’t had the meat thermometer I would have cooked it longer because, undone pork 🤢 I guess I’ll need to apologize for all the dry meat I’ve been serving all my life. Get this!"

PS: The Kizen is not just great for food: Use it to gauge the right temp for milk bottles, bath water, even cocktails!

Add one of these to your cart before this hot deal runs cold.
