Default Quick read thermometer

I am looking for a quick read thermometer. Would love to get Thermapen but its a little out of my price range right now. What others would you suggest. Thansk

I have one of these as a backup to my Thermapen at competitions...

It's not as fast or accurate as the Thermapen, but it works well.
