Now that we’re probably going to be cooking a lot more in our kitchens, we might as well use it as an opportunity to become the best home chefs we can be. And one of the easiest ways to make your cooking better is by ensuring that foods are properly cooked on the inside. From roasting a chicken to baking a loaf of bread, the only way to guarantee that whatever you’re making is at the perfect doneness—is with an instant-read thermometer. If you want to get your hands on the most accurate digital thermometer out there, then you should opt for the ThermoWorks Thermapen Mk4, especially since it’s on sale.
You may have seen Claire on Bon Appetit’s “Gourmet Makes” using the Thermapen Mk4 to make caramel, or spotted Alton Brown checking the temperature of his meats with one on Good Eats. That’s because professional chefs swear by the Thermapen Mk4 for pinpoint accuracy and consistency when cooking. While it’s certainly one of the more expensive thermometers on the market (normally retailing for $99), right now Thermoworks is knocking $20 off the price tag, meaning you can get one for your kitchen for just under $80. Plus, it can ship out today, so you won’t need to wait to kick your home cooking up a notch.
When we tested the best meat thermometers, we found the Thermapen Mk4 to be the speediest, most precise thermometer of the bunch. It was able to read temperatures in an incredibly fast two seconds, which was faster than any of its competitors. With its patented 360-degree auto-rotate display, the probe can be used at any angle for easy-to-read temperatures at a glance. It also features an auto-backlight with a light sensor for dark environments, and is basically indestructible, as it can withstand temperatures of up to 572°F and is completely waterproof.
The Thermapen Mk4’s high-quality design and lighting-fast temperature readings have garnered it legendary, cult-favorite status among professional chefs. While that kind of long-lasting reliability usually comes with a high price, thanks to this sale, you can finally add this famous thermometer to your kitchen for less.
