If any of them are the old, boxy ones with the visible rotating wheel in the front, I'd buy one from you. I'd rather have that old style personally. Not to say the new one isn't great, it sure looks to be, but I'd personally rather have an older one if people are going to sell them.

I saw that email this morning. Probably not jumping just yet. I have no issues with my thermapen or thermopop.

Finally, all the features that the original Thermapen was missing are in the new Mk4!

That one and the thermopop have received positive reviews as cost effective alternatives to a thermapen. They are both only 3 sec or so slower but they cant make you one of the cool kids.

Yes, I have this one. Got it for $25 via Amazon. Works great, I'm happy with it. Yes it take 4-5 seconds to get a reading vs the Thermapen's 3 seconds. I can see where the 1-2 seconds could make a difference be for a professional chef or a competition cooker checking a lot of temps in a short time, but I'm neither of those so it's not been an issue for my usage.

I also have a ThermoPop. It works well, similar time to stabilize as the Thermawand. I like the Lavatools a little better just from a user-interface sense though. Swing it open to turn it on vs. press a button.

Edit: also check out the new Lavatools Javelin PRO. Has a couple neat features. http://lavatools.co/products/javelin-pro?variant=4068665733

I thought I check to see if one was started. Oh well. I still want one. Good thing my birthday is around the corner.

The Javelin PRO is definitely more interesting than the new Thermapen. Cheaper too!

It has a feature where it can automatically hold the stabilized temperature and beeps until you release the button.
