Default Digital Thermometers

I was thinking about getting a Thermapen and then found this one by Maverick and seen that the local Williams Sonoma store carries it, so I could run over and pick it up. Just wondering if anyone has tried the Maverick Precision Pro Commercial Thermometer. It looks comparable to the Thermapen.

Thanks,
Doug

Check the Thermapen web site for a comparison video in their test lab. Same money and does not work as good.

Cheers

If you want to compare apples to apples Maverick made changes to their first pen style thermometer. The model number stayed the same but there is a noticeable difference at the tip of the probe.

I believe that video was done with a first generation Maverick. The one I showed 42BBQ was the new PT-100BBQ. Much nicer unit than before.

This is from the Maverick spec sheet:

I have one and love it, easy read led display.

So what if it's .03 seconds slower than a girly pink thermapen?

Got a good deal on mine through Amazon. YMMV

I think I like this better than the Themapen. It's going on my Christmas list.
