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.

The CDN Pro Accurate Thermometer is an excellent value. It's waterproof, recalibratable, has and on/off button, thin tip point and a 6 second response.

$17.56 with free shipping for Prime members at Amazon.
