Thermometer Speed Test

Here’s a great little video featuring the ThermoWorks calibration lab and one if its reference thermometers (accurate to thousandths of a degree) in a little competitive side-by-side speed testing between the Splash-Proof Thermapen and some of the other “instant read” digital thermometers that are on the market.

If we missed testing your favorite competitor, drop us a line with a recommended test victi…, I mean, subject to and we’ll include it in our next roundup!

An interesting note on the Maverick ProTemp: The ProTemp in the video exhibits something called hysteresis. It works quite ably on the first try but wanders on subsequent attempts until you give a good rest (half an hour or more) at room temperature.

    I have a five years old Thermapen that has gone way off callibration. It misses by more than 10 degrees at both boiling and icewater despite a new battery.

    Can it be recallibrated at home – or does it need to be sent somewhere?
