I looks great!  I spoke with a fellow 'chef' who doesn't own a BGE or a thermapen and he was really jealous.  My husband uses devices like this (the tech) to measure temp degrees for inside paper machine dryers.  This is a high piece of tech.  Tx to all who told me to buy one (I'll beit the marked down one)

    How much is the thermapen.
  • Sale going on now for "open box", refurbished, etc. for $69.  Retail rate is $89, I think.  Well worth it.

    I got one a couple of days ago, because mine wore out.

    Mine arrived yesterday.  Other than the "open box item" stickers, I wouldn't have known they were open box, if I hadn't ordered them as open box.

    Thanks for the link. I bought mine too. $75 with shipping. One thing I didn't notice until I received it is that it's made for right handed people. All of us lefties either need to use the wrong hand or read the thermometer upside down.  :-h

    Got a pink one "for the wife" ; ) . I broke her digital thermometer and so have back-filled now with a pink one that she can use for her cakes (and I can use with our Egg!). BTW, my coffee this morning checks in a 144.3F!
  • I've lost mine to the kitchen after my wife saw how good it is.  She thinks she can make pralines now.  She said I can borrow it when I cook on the Egg.

    I got mine on sale too.  It was a bit distracting with tenths bouncing around, so I opened it up and flipped the switch to read in whole degrees. 

    I'm going to heat up some oil and retest my Egg's thremometer and 250* and 300*.  It looked close on the  boiling water test, but things seem to take longer than expected on the Egg so this will give me better test points.

    It's the world we live in friend ... like to see a right hander have to use a left handed model of anything!

    Sometimes I forget that I'm left handed ... ;o

    Even though I'm a righty, I have some left handed screw drivers I use all the time.

  • I just ordered two of them myself.  I thought my catering partner would like one.

  • Got mine a week ago. Just a superior product. Thanks to all the eggers who recommended it.

  • I left mine outside in the rain all night. It still worked and only had a little moisture inside the display. It dried right out after a few hours in the house.

    Great product. Highly recommend.
