  • Re: Thermapen????

    I think an instant read thermometer is a must, but Thermapen is just one of many brands available. I have one and I'm delighted with it, love the very fine tip and very fast readout, but any high-quality instant-read thermo should give good results if it's accurately calibrated. There are some cheap ones out there and aside from being slower, I suspect they're much less accurate and also less stable over time. If yours is calibrated well (check it from time to time with an ice water bath and boiling water, should be within a degree or so) and is fast enough for you, and has a tip that's fine enough to get it where you want it, then I say don't worry be happy.
