BGE Instant read thermometer.. does anyone own one?

Santa got me a BGE instant read.  I know that the TP gets a lot of press around here, but was wondering if I should exchange the BGE version for some other eggcesory or if anyone has one and stands by it?

Thanks in advance-  P

    Little problem is that BGE has no "instant read" in 2 to 3 second read like TP. BGE only looks like the TP. Take back and get someother Eggcesory.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • I have both and recommend you return the BGE one and get the TP.

    The BGE is a Maverick PT100 with BGE branding. I'd return it for something else, buy a Mav at 1/2 the price or better yet, get a TP.
