Whether it's a roast for a dinner party or a turkey for the holidays, the handy Grill Right Wireless Talking Thermometer from Oregon Scientific ensures meals get cooked to perfection. The unit features a digital LCD screen and a remote wireless probe to identify the temperature of meat. Simply insert the stainless-steel 6-inch probe into the meat, run the 40-inch wire out of the oven or barbeque, and close the door. The sensor will display the current temperature ranging from 32 to 572 degrees F.
Choose from eight entree programs including beef, lamb, veal, hamburger, pork, turkey, chicken, and fish, along with four doneness selections, which include rare, medium rare, medium, and well done. Two verbal and three audio alert options indicate the status of food--almost ready, ready, and overcooked. After reaching the selected temperature, an audio alarm will sound.
Since the thermometer offers wireless operation, there's no need to miss out on the party in order to constantly check on dinner. In fact, the main unit can receive the probe signal from up to 330 feet away. In addition, the thermometer speaks in five languages (English, Spanish, German, French, and Danish), offers a low-battery indicator, and its probe detaches from the sensor for easy cleaning.
Two AA batteries power the main unit and two AAA batteries power the transmitter (all batteries included). The main unit measures 5-3/5 by 2-3/4 by 1-1/2 inches, and the remote unit measures 3-2/5 by 3-2/5 by 1-1/5 inches. The thermometer probe measures 7 inches long and has 40 inches of cord.
How It Works
No need to wait by the grill to find out when dinner is ready. The Grill-Right Talking Thermometer will tell you when your meat is at the right temperature. Program your choice of eight entrees, choose the doneness desired and you're good to grill.
- Step 1: After batteries are inserted, press the reset button
- Step 2: Place the probe in to the meat
- Step 3: Select meat type and doneness level
- Step 4: While the meat is cooking, the probe wirelessly transmits the temperature reading to the receiver. Cook the meat and until you hear four beeps and "It's done."

Then I tried to use it a second time. I had steak marinated and ready for the grill. Football on TV. Turned the TWGT on but the base was not getting a signal from the probe. I changed batteries, hit the reset button on the probe, shook it, cursed it, prayed. Nothing made it work. I even opened the one I had bought to give as a gift - it did not work either. Both units and probes were on but not communicating with each other. I gave up and cooked the steak the old way by trying to time it, lifting the grill and testing it. Very dissappointing.
Fortunately for me, I love gadgets and did not give up. Later, I kept experimenting, trying to figure out what was wrong. I went to Amazon.com and read a review saying you have to hit the reset button, but I had already tried that too many times without success. Then I figured it out.Read more ›
One other thing to be careful about. Keep water away from where the cable enters the probe. Incorrect temp readings can come from water contamination. From other sites, this seems to be a common problem with these wireless thermometers. I clean the probe with a cloth and rinse under the sink, never letting water touch anything but the part of the probe below the loop that enters the meat.
Hope this helps.
The user's manual is terrible, but here is how I finally got the transmitter/base unit to talk:
1. With no batteries in the transmitter, install the batteries in the base unit.
2. Turn on the base unit.
3. Press LANG to select the language.
4. At this point, the base unit should be working fully. There will be ---- displayed as the current temperature on the base unit.
5. Install the batteries in the transmitter.
6. Press the RESET inside the battery cover on the transmitter.
Consistently, the transmitter and base unit synchronized, but it had to be done in this order. The RESET on the base unit or when the temperature probe was plugged into the transmitter did not seem to affect the sync process. The above procedure is consistent with the user's manual, but the manual does not convey how sensitive the process is to the order of the steps.
This is my experience, hopefully it will help others because the manual certainly does not.
Make sure to put the probe into the meatiest part of the meat and not touching any bones. Also, don't put the probe directly over the flame (the manual says these things). I angle it towards the front of the grill so that it is almost under the cover. That way I can close the grill but it is not over direct flame. I've cooked from low BBQ temps to High grill and had no trouble with it. It's made making dinner much less of a hassle.
We've not used it in the oven, though it says you can. We had one issue where the base unit lost track of the remote unit. The temperature reading started flashing and it couldn't reconnect. I turned off the base unit and turned it back on and it reconnected with no further problems.
We like ours so much that we bought another one as a gift.
