    ThermoPro TP-15 Instant Read Thermometer Is it a good one?

    Hi all! Just asking for some advice! I need an instant read thermometer (I only have a stay in probe and it doesn’t work well for steak haha) and saw the good review for the ThermoPro TP-15 Instant Read Thermometer.

    Does anyone who has this unit like it! The price is great, but I don’t want to buy a new one every year either.

    Thanks in advance for your help!


    Not familiar with that one, but I see ThermoPro is having a 15% off site wide sale today. I think most around here would recommend the ThermoWorks Mk4, which is on sale now as a new model came out, but still pricey.


      Here is a review on AR about the ThermoPro. It earned a Platinum rating. I have the ThermoPro TP-19H and like it a lot. The temp times in both of these thermometers is about 3-4 seconds. Usually good enough for me. However, the ThermoWorks is the Gold standard around these parts. Their latest instant read has a time of about 1 second once inserted into the meat to give you the IT. But they’re also about $100. If the speed isn’t that big of a deal to you, I’d recommend the ThermoPro, can’t beat their price, especially for $15.


      Heres AR’s review of the ThermoWorks.

        For the price I think that is a really good way to go, especially with the good review on the free side of AR. Even if it only lasts a few years, its certainly worth $15. I use Thermoworks myself as my instant reads are used for brewing beer, and I need accuracy to within a degree. But if I was just using it for cooking, this $15 Thermopro seems like a good deal.


          Yep they are nice to have. Can't beat the price point either.


            For $15, I'm thinking about getting one just to provide contrast in my drawer to the Mk4's.

              Plus there’s a $2.00 off coupon on Amazon you can apply. $13.00? It’s a steal. ThermoPro makes good stuff. I can attest to that.

            @stanw891 i have had this one for 6 months after my themoworks pop died and i realy like it, i check it every other cook by the ice water test and it reads 33,2 degrees every time.


              I have a Kizen, which is around the same price point, and have been happy with it as well.

              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.
