Default Splash Proof Thermapen

Has anyone had any issues with the water proof durability aspect of it?

Thanks

I've had mine for several years and had no problems. However, it's either in my pocket or being used. It never just get laid down somewhere and I also clean and sanitize it myself. So, no, I've never had to test it's water resistance.

Only trouble I've had with my Thermapen is that my first one grew legs and walked away at a charity event.

LOVE the Thermapen - thankfully, I went with the fastest, most accurate ORANGE model.

There are so many things wrong with that whole scenario. I could only hope that it was accidental. Stealing from a pastor at a charity event is digging a karmical hole from which there is little chance of escape.

Thanks guys. Sorry to hear about the stolen unit. The company I work for asked me to purchase 5 digital thermometers. They have to be waterproof as they may get wet during use. Will the splashproof pen be suffice?

Call Thermapen and ask - they are very helpful on the phone and will shoot straight with you.

Well, it really did suck, but the Brethren felt sorry for me and replaced it...a couple of times...so now i have a backup.

The charity event was a very worthy cause and if someone would have asked me if I'd give up my Thermapen to help raise money for it, I would have said yes, but it still hacked me off that it walked away.

As far as how splashproof they are, I have heard of people leaving them in the rain and them still working, but i don't know if we are talking heavy rain or not...

I think I'm going to order them. I see their is an accessory called a silicon boot. That should help as well.

That would probably help a lot. I do know they are not waterproof.

You might hold off and wait for a deal. I know some times they run sales or even have refurb units for a decent discount.

Really? The splashproof model is not waterproof? Can you share what happened? Thanks

Yeah, it was very sad, especially considering that Dan lives in a small town in Central Illinois, not a big city.

BUT... The saddest part is that Dan still believes that Orange is the fastest and most accurate color Thremapen

My original hyperfast and mega-accurate yellow Thermapen (not the splashproof version) was left in the rain one night and didn't work the next day. I called Thermoworks and for a small fee (I think it was $10) they repaired it. So, even if something does happen to the Splash-proof version, Thermoworks will stand behind their products.

I now have a hyperfast and mega-accurate Mellow Yellow splashproof Thermapen for competitions, but I have been more careful and haven't left it out in the rain. Maybe I should look at the silicon boot just in case

Ron...Ron...Ron...I love you and since you are probably still pumped about your perfect brisket score, I won't correct your so obviously wrong perception about Thermapens. This time. LOL.

I don't know of anyone who has a Thermapen that is unhappy with it, so I would order if I were you.
