I finally decided to buy a thermapen. Included in the box was a catalog of their vaious other products. I saw a probe thermometer with the K-type probes. I know they are more heavy duty than the standard plugs. Just wondered if anyone has ever used them and would recommend them. Also, how do they compare to the et-732, both pros and cons. I am looking to upgrade from the cheapy probe thermometers because I'm getting tired of replacing them so much. Thanks.
