You have to have this
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!

The best gift I ever bought my husband!
The best gift I ever bought my husband! He used to over-cook everything. Now he is the best grill cook ever, steaks come out perfect. This thermometer is quick and easy to use.

Best Temp Probe for the Money
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.

Prefer the Thermopops
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.

Thermopop is your best friend!
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.

Temperature reading dead-on!
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!).

Fast and accurate!
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!

Thermo Pop
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!

Life Changer
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!

Fast and accurate!
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.
