Digital Meat Thermometer

It appears more and more home chefs are turning to this popular digital meat thermometer that offers expedient and accurate temperature readouts in seconds. Compact and waterproof, it’s a perfect tool for busy kitchens.

How does it perform?

The thermometer performs quite well. It takes just a few seconds (less than four) to reach a reading. It has an accuracy rating between 1°C/2°F, which is a bit wider than some of the other thermometers we tested at a similar price point. Fortunately, this margin of error shouldn’t be a deal-breaker or a steak ruiner for most home cooks. And when in doubt, you can always consult the handy temperature guide printed on the front of the thermometer. 

Important specs

The ImSaferell thermometer has a temperature range of -58°F to 572°F, which is fairly standard among similar products. It weighs 4.97 ounces, which makes it one of the heftier devices we tested. The temperature probe is a lengthy 4.6 inches, which is longer than some but not long enough to comfortably hold the thermometer above a hot skillet or open flame for too long. From end to end, the thermometer measures 6.73 inches at its full length. 

The tip of the thermometer tapers to a narrow 1.6mm, which is a nice small radius to slide into delicate foods like fish without leaving an obvious hole. 

The thermometer is waterproof and has a built-in magnet on the back, so you can attach it to your outdoor grill and leave it out in most weather. It also comes with two batteries (one already installed), and several stick-on tabs if you don’t have a magnetic surface. 

The bottom line: The ImSaferell Instant Read Meat Thermometer is a high-functioning and highly durable temperature gauge that will be by your side in all weather to provide accurate and easy-to-read temperature data.
