Read food temps in 3 seconds or less! Thermocouple needle senses real-time temperature changes more precisely than low-cost thermistor units. The 4.5 inch probe reaches the center of large roasts and turkeys. On the BBQ, probe length keeps you and the electronics further from the heat. Popular with pastry chefs, it reaches into pots for boiling sugars and into the center of baked goods. Deep fryers safely measured where competing short probes would expose you to splattering oil. Each Super-Fast® Thermapen® comes with a NIST-Traceable certificate of calibration giving actual test data to prove its accuracy relative to National Temperature Standards. NSF listed. No buttons to confuse you or trap grime. Open the probe, Thermapen turns on. Close it, it turns off. Battery compartment settings personalize your unit. Disable the Auto-Off so the Thermapen is always ready when the probe is open. Change display from °F to °C. Select 1 degree or 0.1 degree. Use Trim-Adjust with an ice bath to calibrate for even better accuracy. Thermapen is the most highly recommended food thermometer in the world. Preferred by celebrity chefs, health inspectors, pro BBQ teams and restaurant chains. The Super-Fast speed and accuracy tell you more than any other thermometer about what’s actually happening in food while it cooks. Hand made in a professional instrument factory in England, the Thermapen’s measurement technology is faster and more accurate than mass-produced houseware thermometers. Splash-Proof industrial design with molded-in seals, high-temp plastics, and minimal food traps survives wet and messy commercial kitchens in demanding ops worldwide. Knock-offs don’t use the same instrument technology, therefore don’t perform the same or last as long. Comes with a guidebook explaining how to use a Super-Fast thermometer for accurate readings and better food. Includes a 2-year warranty backed by ThermoWorks Tech Support center and NIST-traceable calibration laboratory.

Another thing I like is that when you open the Thermapen, it's instant on, close it and it's off. The changeable battery is easily accessible when, and if, you need to change it, ensuring a very long life.
One bonus for me is that I may be cooking a single serving of something so there isn't much space to insert a thermometer. The sensor in this probe is quite near the end so you don't have to insert it very far to get a good reading. The only thing I don't like is that being left-handed, the display is on the wrong side for me, so I have to consciously think to hold it in my right hand in order to read it.
I ended up with my multitude of probe thermometers because none of them really did the job satisfactorily. Happily, this thermometer is really effective. While I don't plan to get it wet, who knows, the kitchen is a volatile place, so I decided to spend a little more for the water resistant version to ensure that wouldn't be a problem. It doesn't clip on to a pan so doesn't work for candy, but I've used it for just about everything else and am very satisfied.
Very simply, there are two things to say about the Thermapen.
1. A hundred bucks for a thermometer?!
2. It's the best kitchen thermometer, with no competition.
So, yes, $100 means that you need to be a serious cook to need this. If you're not, there are perfectly able "instant-read" thermometers for $10-20 and you should get one of those, try it in boiling water to confirm that it's accurate (it probably will be) and use it. It will be perfectly fine.
But if you are a serious cook, you will appreciate that instant read for this product means under ten seconds (I think the new model is faster) but for the $15 ones, it means more like 30.
This product is fast, dead-accurate, and has a tiny probe that lets you take pinpoint readings.
You don't HAVE to have this. Unless you're like me, and you HAVE to have it.
Update: Do shop around and look at Thermoworks' website. They have various models and sometimes have sales.
Further update: I agree with the comments people like Kimberly have added -- get it at Thermoworks' own website, as the sellers here seem to be profiteering.
