Thermometer Question

Just need advice on a cooking thermometer. My wife wants a new one in the kitchen, the one we have, bought locally at Wally World isn't that accurate. It's not for my egg, it is working fine. Is the Tel-Tru the way to go? If so, is there a specific model I should look at?
Thanks for the help,

    The thermapen for the best for instant readings.
    Next choice would be a Maverick ET 73 if remote temp is required.Then the all time standard a Polder available with or without the remote wireless feature..

    thermapen for the instant-read stuff, and a good old Maverick ET-73 for the leave in probe kind. Polder is an excellent manufacturer too.
