If the tip is anywhere near as sharp as the full size version and I keep that in my pocket, I can see other dangers may await. Ouch. :frown:

I didn't see it on the web site so I've contacted Thermoworks. I'll follow up here so we don't swamp them :)

Going online in the next few days. Sale price is set at $10 a piece. We're calling them "Fun-Size Thermometers!"

Are they going to be just as fast as the normal size thermapen?

It would be good for when you are at a Friends house for BBQ and they go get refills, you could do a quick check and really sound smart when suggesting how much longer to leave it on the grill!

They are not as fast as a Thermapen! That's important for everyone to remember. We began handing them out as promotional items and people have fallen in love with them, so we're making them available for purchase. I think the accuracy is about ±3-4°F and the speed is closer to 8-10 seconds for a reading. We wouldn't count on them to replace your current thermometer.

Thanks for that info. I was wondering how they could be 3 seconds fast without the additional circuitry.

There a link to purchase page? Not seeing it on the site (albeit using my phone as I'm on vacation).

These may be good for pork loin or chicken, but the probe doesn't seem long enough to reach the center of a butt or brisket.

I got one of these for free when I bought my Thermapen. I just took it on vacation with me and did a lot of grilling while I was there. It came in handy, but there were a couple of problems with it. It is not long enough to get a temp on thick cuts of meat. It did great with the chicken and pork chops I grilled, but was useless on the rib roast. It is also not long enough (or fast enough) to take a temp while the meat is on a hot grill without burning the hairs off your fingers (trust me). But this is easily overcome by removeing the meat to take the temp, then returning it to the grill. The other issue is that it gets turned on too easily while in your pocket. I would turn it off, stick it in my pocket, and every time I pulled it out, it was already on. Now that said, after 10 days of being on much of the time, it never went dead. But the battery will drain sooner or later because of this.
