Backlit Thermapen....

Anyone have one? I Have one of the original Thermapen and it is getting a little stiff when I open it so I was thinking of picking up another one before this one bites the dust. Now I know this will most likely last quite a while but I find myself wanting a back lit Thermapen and I'm hoping to hear from someone who has actually used one and get opinions on how well the back light works. It's automatic and I would hate to spend the extra $ if it doesn’t light up when I need it to be lit up.

Anyone?

  • I have one, used it several times in the dark and it does turn on automatically. It isn't the brightest, but better than nothing.

    Not to be a smarty*ss here, but do you use your Thermapen in the dark?

    In the winter the egg near my house is not near enough to a light that I can read it with out a flashlight. My eyes are not what they used to be.

    I can get by with a flashlight but I thought it might come in handy.

    excuse me, partner...he even added the comment about his eyes not being what they used to be and I thought maybe I could make a suggestion. - bear with me...OK?

    Joe - I know what you mean and even though this might look strange to some folks here this is my night time solution...a hard hat reversed with a high power night light bolted on. You want to know the amazing thing? "The beam is always shining where I am looking! "

    Hell, 80% of the cooking I do is in the dark.  My wife and I's schedules just happen to make it that way.  It's early dining for us if we eat at 8:00 p.m.  I use a Cabela's head lamp, but the next Thermapen I buy will be backlit.
