Default Where to buy Thermapen?

Hi all.

I've finally gotten sick of my crappie Chinese made thermo that takes forever to read and I'm sure is inaccurate.

Have also finally got approval from the boss/wife (lol) for funds necessary to acquire a Thermapen!

Where is best (read cheapest) place to get these, factoring that I will require shipping to new Zealand?

If it proves cheaper, Would someone be prepared to let me send it to their stateside address and then package it up and send it on to me in NZ?

Thanks all

Sent from my phone while I'm supposed to be working ;)

I'm pretty sure that you can only buy direct from Thermoworks.

Here is their shipping info page.

They appear on amazon.com, but not in a full color selection. Hit or miss with what you can get. (They've had purple and pink forever.) And no better price than direct from Thermoworks. They are a UK company, so no idea if they have sales channels elsewhere outside the US.

Oh, interesting. I saw the Utah address when I placed an order this morning and presumed it was just the office that did US distribution. So they're just manufactured in England?

Looks like they've got manufacturing spread out to a couple places. I knew they repaired and calibrated in UT, but didn't know where they manufactured.

From their site:


Where Are We?
ThermoWorks is located just south of Salt Lake City, Utah. The workforce here is highly educated and there are several thermal instrument and data logging companies in the state. While a few of our products are manufactured here, many are made for us by partner factories in Europe, Asia and the USA. Most of our in-house staff is engaged in marketing, technical support, product definition, design, and operations. We run our own calibration lab and service departments. Most products can be repaired right here. We do not outsource our order desk nor our warehouse and fulfillment. All of this is done by ThermoWorks staff so you can speak directly with people that know something about the products and the status of your order.
