✅ TOP 5: Best Meat Thermometer 2019


There are plenty of hacks out there for telling
if your meat is done. You can cook your chicken until the juices
run clear. You might press on your hand as a reference
guide for how done your steak is. Or, you may simply slice the cut of meat in
half and eyeball it. All of these methods are fairly valid. But, I prefer precision. I want to know the moment my roast reaches
a safe internal temperature. If I wait any longer, I fear that I might
lose some flavor and juiciness. If perfection is your goal, then a meat thermometer
should be an indispensable tool in your culinary repertoire. Before we get started on breaking down the
best meat thermometers, we’ve included links in the description to various pricing options
for all the products mentioned, so make sure you check those out. Starting off with the best overall meat thermometer
which goes to the Lavatools Javelin Digital Meat Thermometer. Formerly known as the “Thermowand,” the Lavatools
Javelin thermometer is designed to produce readings within four seconds with an accuracy
of ±0.9 degrees Fahrenheit or better with a range of -40 to 482 degrees. The accuracy improves the closer the item
you are measuring is to room temperature. The food-grade tapered probe is 2.75 inches
long and made of 18/8 stainless steel. The device is covered with an anti-microbial
coating to prevent bacterial growth. The Javelin is available in six colors, including
chipotle, butter, sesame, and indigo. It runs on one CR2032 3V battery for at least
4,000 hours of continuous use. Lavatools backs this product with a lifetime
warranty. Wired found it takes only about five seconds
to return a stable temperature and the reviewers liked that it is inexpensive. However, the testers didn’t like the short
probe length and that the range topped out at 482 degrees. Serious Eats compared this thermometer to
the ThermoPop from ThermoWorks and found the Lavatools thermometer has the edge when it
comes to cooking thinner cuts of meat but can’t reach the center of large roasts like
the ThermoPop can. The Lavatools PT12 Javelin Digital Instant
Read Meat Thermometer has more than 3,200 positive reviews on Amazon. The most helpful review came from Adam D,
who found the Lavatools thermometer was much very accurate and the design kept him from
burning his fingers while checking his food’s temperature. Other buyers appreciated the accuracy of the
readings and that the thermometer is magnetized so you can attach it to your refrigerator
or oven for easy access. Next up we have the best high-end meat thermometer
which goes to the ThermoPro Wireless Meat Thermometer. If you are used to having to open up the oven
or grill to measure the temperature of your meats, the ThermoPro Wireless Meat Thermometer
has the potential to revolutionize your cooking experience. You simply put one or both probes into your
slab of meat and let the transmitter know the temperature you want your food to reach. An alarm will go off once the meat gets to
the right temperature. The remote has a range of up to 300 feet and
measures temperatures between 32 and 572 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also set a timer for up to 100 hours. Each probe has 40-inch stainless steel mesh
cables, so you can reach from afar. This is the meat thermometer I use for everything:
roasting flavorful turkeys, smoking pork butts, and making everything from candy to candles. I usually put both probes into different parts
of the meat I’m cooking because I’m not always the best at finding the deepest, most centrally-located
part of the roast, which is ideally where you should be taking your temperature readings. You may find it more useful to use one of
the probes to monitor the internal temperature of your oven or smoker. Once everything is set up, you just affix
the transmitter to your belt and go about other tasks around the house until the alarm
goes off. The ThermoPro TP20 is the top pick in Kitchen
Sanity’s look at the best meat thermometers. The tester rated it so highly because of the
lifetime sensor probe warranty, it reads temperatures up to 572 degrees, and it notifies you when
your food is at the right temperature. The reviewer does note that the transmitter
uses up batteries quickly. More than 2,800 buyers have left five-star
ratings of the ThermoPro TP20 on Amazon. The company’s customer service is also excellent. One buyer originally rated the device as two
stars because he couldn’t get the probes to engage. ThermoPro reached out to the reviewer immediately
and helped him fix the issue by pushing the probes into the device harder. The buyer then changed his review to five
stars and has been impressed with the strong signal, easy setup, and accuracy. Other buyers also were impressed with how
intuitive the functions are. Yet, some wished there was a low-temperature
alarm, which would be helpful when smoking meats. Up next with the best meat thermometer for
fast readings, this one goes to the Lavatools Javelin PRO Duo Digital Meat Thermometer. The Lavatools Javelin Pro Duo costs twice
as much as the Lavatools PT12, but there are several extra features that justify the additional
price. First of all, temperature readings are delivered
about a second faster. And at 4.5 inches, the probe is about 1.5-inches
longer. Other benefits include 3D motion wake, anti-fog
display, stabilization alert, and backlighting. Also, the ambidextrous display rotates based
on how the screen is positioned, which makes it easier for you to read the temperature. The Pro Duo comes in eight colors, including
chipotle, indigo, sesame, and stealth ink. The Wirecutter recommended the Lavatools Javelin
Pro Duo because of its fold-up design, temperature holding, stabilization alerts, and speedy
readings. Morning Chores also liked its accuracy, readings
within three seconds, stabilization alerts, and energy-efficient battery life. But, the reviewer noted the probe is relatively
short and it can be tough to open and close. Around 84% of the buyers who reviewed the
Lavatools Javelin Pro Duo on Amazon gave it five stars. Reviewer Sean Nelson compared this thermometer
to the highly rated Thermapen from ThermoWorks, which costs twice as much. He had used the Thermapen for three years
and found the Pro Duo is faster and just as accurate. Other buyers mentioned that they liked the
backlit display and how easy it is to clean the probe. Next up we have the best smart meat thermometer
which goes to the iDevices Kitchen Thermometer. The iDevices Kitchen Thermometer comes with
an app and two probes so you can track two separate pieces of meat, different areas of
a large roast, or your grill’s ambient temperature on your smartphone from up to 150 feet away
via Bluetooth. The thermometer magnetically mounts to your
grill or oven, and when your phone is more than 30 feet away, the display goes blank
to conserve battery life. It runs on two AA batteries and has a temperature
range of -22 to 572 degrees Fahrenheit. CNET gave the iDevices Kitchen Thermometer
an 8.3 rating out of 10. The reviewer was impressed with how the app
alerts you when your meat reaches the ideal temperature, but found the app wasn’t particularly
well-designed. The thermometer won an “Editors’ Choice” award
on PCMag because of the accurate temperature readings and the helpful alerts. Around 82% of the buyers who reviewed the
iDevices Kitchen Thermometer on Amazon gave it four or five stars. In particular, reviewers like the magnetic
base that makes it easy to stick to the oven. Other buyers appreciated that the app displays
a graph of the food’s temperature over time. Now for our last pick we have the best meat
thermometer on a budget which goes to the Polder Stable-Read Digital Thermometer. The Polder Stable-Read thermometer provides
accurate readings in as little as four seconds. You insert the probe into your roast, press
the button, and once you hear the beep, you know a stable temperature is available. The large, easy-to-read screen holds the reading
until you reset it. It measures temperatures ranging from -49
to 392 degrees Fahrenheit and runs on one CR2032 3V battery. Cook’s Illustrated recommends the Polder Stable-Read
Thermometer because it is fast, accurate, easy to read, and simple to use. The only issue the testers had was that when
they momentarily rested the thermometer on the lip of a saucepan, it melted. In Your Best Digs’ tests of the best instant-read
thermometers, this Polder thermometer provided the quickest readings, and they were impressed
with how it beeps when the temperature stabilizes. On Amazon, the Polder thermometer has a four-star
rating based on 169 reviews. Buyers appreciated how accurate the readings
are and liked that it made it easier to cook flavorful meat. Others mentioned that the readings are quite
fast. The main complaint was that you must be careful
when washing the probe. You do not want the electrical components
to be exposed to moisture, or they may fail. So that sums up our top meat thermometers,
we hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
