Anyone have one? I picked one up from my local dealer assuming it would be pretty similar to thermapen. Maybe it is, I don`t know but I have used it once and am not impressed. I calibrated it in boiling water and it is dead on. Used it tonight on some steak. First, there is nothing instant about it. Probed one steak and it started out at 98 and slowly climbed to 157 degrees. So slowly that I had to switch hands holding it as the heat from the coal was too much to tolerate. When I cut into the steak after resting, it was medium rare at most. Not sure if it was picking up heat from the grill or what was going on.
How do the thermapens work? Any better? Do you think there is any chance my dealer will take it back? Perhaps I am using it wrong? Thanks.
