Serious question... How quick is 'instant'?
I've bought a few of those exact same model; smallish medallion style digi-thermo claiming to be instant.
I've never had one give even 'quick' results. The last one I bought actually took 90 seconds to come up to temp when measured against another therm already @ temp.
@ that price, I'd buy 4 or 5 to keep in the kitchen and around the BBQ stuffs, but only if they were true 'quick read' and gave accurate temps within 6-10 seconds.
