I recently ordered a Thermopop for myself after many trial and errors with bbq chicken. Oh my gosh. I couldn't believe the difference it has made. I bbq chicken legs (no sauce) to 180 degrees (probe touching bone). The chicken is perfectly done to the bone, and still juicy. It has changed my bbq, made my wife happy, and well... what else is important in life! I since then ordered 4 more to give as gifts. Love my Thermopop!
I've had my ThermoPop and Chef Alarm for about 6 months now and so glad I went with ThermoWorks after my other temp probe (different company) went kaput. This ThermoPop is great for all my grilling needs. The quality is so superior to other cooking thermometers out there. Light years ahead of anybody else. I can see why chefs use products from this company. I love the features and simplicity of the Thermo Pop. I use it every time I grill and the quick response time, rotating display of temperature and back light display have all come in handy. It's simply to use and is a big plus. Super happy with both products from ThermoWorks. I just couldn't afford the quicker Thermopen and the Chef Alarm in one purchase but really, a second or two slower with the ThermoPop makes no difference to me since I'm just a home cook. Handy feature to be able to put it in it's sheath and carry it around in a pocket too when you're going back & forth while your meat is cooking.
I have the Thermapen and two of the ThermoPops. I now only use the ThermoPops. I think the ThermoPops are as accurate and as fast as the Thermapens but they stay lit longer than the Thermapen. About every time I picked up the Thermapen the display had gone blank and I had to put the cooking utensil down and close and open the Thermapen to get it lit again.
I am going to buy several more of the ThermoPops as gifts for family members.
Bought a ThermoPop as my first quick read thermometer and it is absolutely fantastic! My cooking immediately improved because I can get foods to the right temperatures. Chicken is done but still juicy. Steaks are perfect. Brisket is fantastic, tender and juicy. Overall I'm much more consistent in producing well cooked but not over-cooked foods.
I tested my (orange!!) ThermoPop whilst boiling water at 4,963 ft. The boiling temperature for water at sea level is 212*F and drops 1*F for each 500 ft elevation. Therefore, the boiling point at my home should be 203.038*F.
Sure enough, the ThermoPop performed flawlessly, registering 203*F as my water boiled. I'm extremely confident in its ability to properly provide temps of meats and keep my cooking safe!
Also, it was great to adjust the direction of the read-out as I held the thermometer probe into the water. I didn't have to do any headstands or dangle my hair into the pot upside-down to read the temperature.
The price is amazing and you won't find a more accurate thermometer at this price/color selection/portability!
(I'm just going to add here that ThermoWorks has amazing customer service. I added a probe to my order and they handled it promptly, professionally, and from Utah in the USA!).
America's Test Kitchen recipes and suggestions never disappoint, so when my inexpensive "instant" read thermometer quit working I went to Amazon to order. The price was way high, so I'm glad I went to the ThermoWorks site directly. Shipping was fast and this thermometer is easy to use and accurate. I like the bright colors so I'm not digging through my sea of black utensils to find it. Also, thanks for the Jelly Bellys! I returned to order the ChefAlarm just in time for Thanksgiving!
I bought one of these to use on faster cooks that I don't use a leave in probe and it works perfectly. Reads and stabilizes in probably 3 or 4 seconds. Also use it to verify the leave in probe on longer cooks. Inexpensive, reliable, and fast. Couldn't ask for anything better!
This little gadget is literally a life-changer! I always struggled to determine the exact doneness of steaks, pork chops, salmon - well, just about everything. I either tried and failed the resiliency method or resorted to cutting into the steak - yikes! My son tucked this little number into my Christmas stocking and my cooking successes skyrocketed! It's small, it's fast, it's easy to read, it's accurate, it adapts to Fahrenheit or Centigrade (for us Canucks) and it just plain WORKS LIKE A CHARM!! If you don't have one - stop reading and get ordering. It is absolutely the best value for the dollar you will find in kitchen equipment!
I have tried several brands and types of kitchen/BBQ thermometers and have found all of them to be less than desirable. I decided to bite the bullet and give the Thermopop a try. This is a high quality, solid instrument with easy-to-read dial and is a great addition to any kitchen. All I can say is WOW! This instant read probe is FAST! My wife and I tried it on some meatballs she was preparing for a church dinner, and we were amazed at how quickly it gave us the correct temperature. I think she was a bit skeptical, but the Thermopop proved to be a real winner! I would say the 3-4 second time frame is right on the money. I can hardly wait to try it on the BBQ grill. No more underdone or overdone steaks! Thank you for a wonderful product....and they make great gifts.
Barely used the product, maybe 5 times total. Either the battery is out or the machine is completely broke. Whichever it is, is unacceptable after 5 uses and only having for a 2 months. Their return and exchange policy is a joke, 30 days. Highly recommend shopping elsewhere, like amazon with actual return policies that make sense.
While it is unusual that a ThermoPop fails this quickly, we are sorry to hear that it happened to you. Our Tech Support team has sent you a replacement. If you have any further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to help.
To clarify... Our 30-day return policy is for returns for refunds. (This is for people who purchase a product but then change their mind before using it.) The ThermoPop (and most other ThermoWorks products) comes with a 2-year warranty. In your case, we have replaced your ThermoPop at the first moment we understood that it was broken.

What a difference this makes
We cook a lot of fish. No cooking is as persnickety as fish. The window between raw sushi and rubber is very small. I tried multiple ways to test doneness. I used dial thermometers, toothpicks, testing resiliency, timing it, you name it. None of them worked reliably. Then I bought my ThermoPop. I've used it dozens of times since then and the fish always comes out perfect.
The same thing goes with other meats. We haven't had a single piece of dried-out chicken, pork, or beef since we got it, and we've fried, roasted, grilled, and baked the meats. The ThermoPop handles it all.
The only downside to using it is when you are testing roasted or baked foods. Constantly opening the door/lid to check the temperature is not the ideal thing to do, especially in the critical last minutes of the cook. You should use a leave-in thermometer for that.
To that end, I've just ordered a DOT. If it is half as good as my ThermoPop, I'm expecting great things.
As someone who regularly over-cooked fish and under-cooked steaks, this thing is really a game changer! Super easy to use, this tells me the internal temperature in a couple of seconds. This makes me a much more confident cook - cannot recommend this enough! Excellent product!
I purchased a ThermoPop for cooking chops, chicken and steaks because the headache of finding out you undercooked/overcooked dinner isn't fun when you cut into it... Since I purchased the ThermoPop my food comes off the grill perfect every time!
I got two of these 4 months ago, it has completely changed how I cook. I didn't realize how fast you can cook things on the grill until I started using this. Definitely a great investment. I know some people who will be getting one for Christmas!
First, the Thermopop is top notch. Its "The best digital thermometer for home cooking" designation by The Sweethome, the insanely diligent product review site, was enough for me to buy. Way better design, faster than my other digital instant read. Thinner probe too. After 4 months, my Thermopop failed. There *may* have been some user error (uh, don't leave it in the vent of your Weber). In any case, when I wrote in for a return code to fix it, they responded in 11 minutes(!), told me not to worry about sending in the old one, they'll just send me a new one, and shipped it within 3 hours. WHO DOES THAT?!! Excellent product, mind-blowing customer service.
Excellent Reasonably Priced Thermometer - Wonderful Support Too
I have been using my ThermoPop for three years now and it has proven itself to be a great thermometer at an affordable price. I purchased this thermometer to verify meat temperatures when grilling. I have a pellet grill that gets used weekly and so does my ThermoPop. It has done such a great job giving me consistent cooks outdoors, it rapidly became a part of our kitchen cooking routine too, allowing us to cook to exact temperature. What a difference that makes. The ThermoPop is easy to read and has a handy backlit display for when I am outside grilling in the dark.
Tonight , my ThermoPop probe fell out. I was saddened to think that my trusty ThermoPop had seen the end of its very active life of service. I called ThermoWorks and they very kindly replaced my ThermoPop for free. It's a satisfying feeling to find a product that really meets your needs, but even more satisfying to receive such exemplary customer service.
After purchasing cheap meat thermometers for years, I finally got tired of their inaccuracies and the long read time. I checked America's Test Kitchen and found the Thermapen, but knew I couldn't spend that much. Then I found their review of the ThermoPop and thought I'd try it. I was nervous as it was still pricey but after I used it for the first time I knew it was the right decision. Lightning fast (especially compared to cheap thermometers), accurate and cute - it's more than I could have hoped for! I will definitely recommend this product to anyone!!
I had another thermometer I was using and it was way off! It has been trashed an replaced by my new ThermoPop. The Chef Alarm is also a very great product also! I look forward to cooking with ThermoWorks products.
I got my orange Thermopop two days ago. I got to use it on chicken last night. I can't even begin to tell you haw fast this thing is. My only gripe is that it is a little awkward to hold. I'm sure I'll get used to it. But for $24 on sale this can''t be beat. Awesome speed and accuracy.
Fast and accurate, but induction cooktops cause it to freeze and reboot. Not fun when you're skillet cooking a pricey piece of beef and want to be certain! Future improvement suggestion: magnetic shielding!
I brought it home, put a pan of water on the stove to boil and filled a cup with ice and a little water. I put the pen in the boiling water - 212 degrees exactly. Moved it to the ice water - 32 degrees exactly. In less than 5 seconds.
Best part - I left it out in the rain. No damage due to its water resistant design. My $100 thermopen was destroyed by leaving out in the rain.
Essentially, every aspect of the Thermopop met or exceeded my expectations. I appreciate the varied color choices, as I was able to choose a different color to match the variable meats I might be cooking. The on/off - control button sits at the top of the display on the face of the pop, but I would have preferred if it were on the top or side of the pop so you could better manage the "programs" when using it. Still, this is an excellent item and I would buy it again regardless of the location of this button. And, I have already highly recommended it to others and will continue to do so.
After searching online for the best affordable instant read thermometer, I decided upon the ThermoPop. It was insanely easy to use and temperatures read instantly. I started using a convection oven a few months ago and everything cooks faster than a normal oven. This thermometer has saved me from overcooking and undercooking my meat. Thanks ThermoWorks!
I love my ThermoPop. It really does measure the internal temperature of meats accurately and quickly. I use it for hamburgers on the grill and for whole chickens that I roast in the oven. I bought a second one as a gift for my daughter. She loves hers, too.
