Originally designed for professional users, the Super-Fast Thermapen is chosen by restaurant chains, health inspectors, quality managers and chefs all over the world. The clever pocket design replaces more costly and bulky handheld thermometers while using the same professional thermocouple technology. The Super-Fast Thermapen displays actual internal food or liquid temperatures in only 3 or 4 seconds. Other thermometers make you wait another 20 seconds or more to catch up to the Thermapen. That's a huge difference in a fast paced commercial kitchen or when you're over a hot grill. If you're cooking an expensive cut of meat you want a perfect outcome. You don't want a slow temperature reading that might be misinterpreted and your meat overcooked.
The reduced-diameter needle tip of the Super-Fast model only requires about 1/8" immersion so you can take the temperature of even thin burger patties. And, you'll only leave a tiny, self-closing hole in your steak instead of the gaping "juice-drain" left by "digital BBQ forks" or the old dial-type meat thermometers.
The Thermapen automatically comes on when you unfold the probe and it shuts off when you close it for storage. An auto-off feature will save your battery if you leave the probe open over 6 minutes. Each unit includes a battery, a wrist-strap and a certificate of calibration with actual test data to show your unit's accuracy at two temperatures.
