The Oregon Scientific is good if you get one for $4.... that said some of them last forever and others will not last beyond the first cook. The drawback is that they will not read beyond 199 degrees but once my meat hit that temp, it was done or just waiting to be done. I have had a few and two of them actually lasted almost three years, then they finally crapped out and the replacements didn't work as well as the first two.
