If I was cooking for others, or running a kitchen, I would own a few of them. Nothing better than the speed and accuracy. If you have to stop and think, you will skip the temperature and bad things can happen.
I don't own one for home, but, when I cook with them, I really do like them a lot. The probe is also a good brisket tester. I do steaks by feel, but, after turning in semi-cooked chicken once, I temp any chicken I am feeding other people with.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
