Thermapen Sale

smkit Aug 30, 2010 08:16 PM

I got this tip via knifeforums, but the new splashguard thermapen is on sale from the Thermaworks site. It comes in a wide range of colors and sells for $89 and shipping is free.


I know it is spendy, but it is the best thermo probe out there.

      Just placed my order. Hope it's still on sale. I'll post if I have
      any trouble. Thanks for the tip. I've wanted one of these for ages but
      was too cheap to pop for the original price!

        Great product...I've also got the original model and use it multiple times a week.

        As for storage, it sits in a drawer with the rest of my kitchen utensils.

          Thanks for the heads up!

          *waits for naysayers to report in that their $10 polder works just as good*

                +1. Ordered Friday and got it today. The jelly beans were a nice touch. Many thanks to the OP for the heads up!

                Thanks for the tip, smkit! This has been on my wish list for a while.

                Question for CH's who have/use this -- how do you store it? Thermoworks has cases, a silicon sleeve, a wall hung holder, etc.for it --is this all necessary?

                Also, is the thermopen easy to keep clean? I'm eyeing the white..but not if it's not practical!

                Many thanks..

                  It seems to me as if this probe is water/splash proof. I can't imagine that it is less durable than the thermometers we use now (or at least I do). I thought about a case, but decided against it. I am always reaching for my thermometer at the last moment, and I think the case would 'get in the way'.

                    I got one of their regular super fast pen for $69 as they were rolling out the new splash proof model. I don't even see that one on their site any more. No regrets with the purchase. I love it and use it a lot when grilling and smoking meats.

                      I got two of the older models a little over a year ago...they were $70 each.

                      Storage, for me, is just to throw them in a kitchen drawer.

                      Cleanup is nothing more than wiping down the probe.

                      I bought a cheap plastic sleeve to keep it in. Cost me much less than the Thermoworks sleeves on offer. I keep my IR thermometer in another part of the sleeve.

                      Agreed - one of my favorite tools in the kitchen. Well made and easy to use. I've tried several cheaper ones that did not last long. Highly recommended if you don't have one.
