    I had one, as a matter of fact I still do but have no idea where it is
    because I've never had any desire to use it after I got a Thermapen.
    The Thermapen looks expensive at first but in the end it was only a
    couple of dollars more then the total amount I spent on the half dozen
    or so other probes I tried. Something like the Taylor is OK if your
    just checking one thing like a roast, its slow but you can get by. If
    your doing something like a bunch of burgers or a couple of steaks at
    high heat you can't beat the Thermapen.

    Here is a link:

    I agree with Hungrey Joe. My Thermapen is my most important "tool" for the egg.A little pricey but well worth it.

    If you just buy a Thermapen now, you'll save the money on all those other thermometers you try before you end up buying a Thermapen. Which is what happened to me also.

    +1 for Thermapen.
