Hands down it is the Flame model, which was built using the fastest individual parts out of the black, red and orange pens!!!

Boom. Beat me to it.

I call it Packer Green, but I know it's officially British Racing Green.

Has anyone picked up the Ltd Edition Desert Tan model? Has a US Flag on it. My red of many years died about a week ago and after several days of mourning, I'm ready to find a new love.

FYI, if you "Like" Thermapen on FB, you'll see their special deals.

Red is fastest...

My thermopen has been screwing me lately. I was cooking steaks and used the TP to get the temp. The thermopen registered 125 so I pulled the steaks. Took them inside and the steaks were medium well. How does that happen? Checked it in boiling water and the temp was on there.

My only guess is that the batteries might be going out. I replaced them last weekend, so hopefully it will be dependable. I am doing 2 whole tenderloins this Saturday and simply cannot afford for this to be off. I might have to buy a separate probe thermo just to keep it honest. Hate that.

Oh yeah, and mine is blue.

Measure the temp left or right of the center of the steak. Steaks can't be measured like you would a roast.
