    Thermapen Mk 4 is no more?

    Got an email from Thermoworks today.

    "We’ve got some big news coming... but first we’re closing out our Thermapen Mk4, the #1-rated cooking thermometer on the market. Get yours today for its lowest price of $69."

    I'm all set but maybe this will help someone else. Curious to see what's coming.

    I saw this too. I'm guessing that the new one will be more bigger better, and at a steeper price.

      I'm looking forward to seeing the new thermo. Hopefully, it includes IR and a probe port. Chances are it won't include both though.

        FWIW, they already make a thermapen IR.

        Yeah, but they are only in white. I'm hoping their new flagship thermometer includes IR in multiple colors and in a perfect world the ability to plug in a probe or 2.

      I've been watching this. Curious the classic Thermapens are not on sale/closeout. My suspicion is that the Thermapen IR would become the new premium model.

      Like many of us, I hope they don't mess up the "perfect" product by trying to improve it.

          If the current IR came in blue I would probably already own it.

        All good things must come to an end.

          If I didn’t already have two Mk4s I’d be all over this one. When I got the email, I almost ordered one.
          I might still, need to look at my “gift list.”

          I too find it interesting that the “classic” is still available. Perhaps they’re cheap enough to produce..? Still odd IMO.

          Looking forward to their next few emails to see what the big news is...can’t really see improving the Mk4... I just hope they don’t screw it up and/or start making them in China.

            I already have one, too, but it's a great price for a nice gift. Got one for my daughter.

            Deaf Arty I hear ya. I have 2 and have gifted 3 already... Still waiting to see what the new one offers. Might need to gift a couple of slightly used Mk4s. ;-)

            And FWIW, well done that you got one for your daughter. I'm of the belief that a GOOD thermometer makes a great gift. Shows one cares about their health & safety AND it will improve their cooking. Not sure how many Thermo Pops that I've given away.

          #8
          FWIW...no official release date on the new model. Yeah, I checked. ;-)

              Dangnambut. I JUST got a mk4 after getting tired of throwing away the cheap Wally World thermos once or twice a year.

                But voice control probably will.

                I don’t think so. I could be wrong, but inertia is a powerful force.

                I'm with Mosca the Mk4 is still exceptional. So much so that I own 2. One is in my "location" bag that I take to friends & family home when I'm pressed into cooking there.

              Didn't realize so many people really care what color their thermometers are.

              Looking forward to see what their new model offers but I doubt that I'll switch back to Thermapens from my Lavatool Javelins.

                My main one is orange so that I can find it at a glance. I also have a grey one because they were out of orange when I got my second one. My GF has a pink one that I got her. Both my boys have orange as well...I know this because I paid for 'em. LOL

                When I ran a kitchen, back in the "classic" days...I had several on hand: red for meats, blue for seafood, white for dairy, and green for veg...just in case some numpty didn't clean a probe properly.

                I have a blue MK4, 2 blue Thermopops, a blue dot, and a red(headed stepchild) Thermopop. When the MK5 comes out I'll likely have one of those in blue too.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
