Meat thermometers are fantastic kitchen tools -- and with Thanksgiving on the way, now might be the perfect time to stock your kitchen with one. Not only will a good meat thermometer help you not overcook your turkey, more importantly, it can keep you from undercooking it by ensuring that your meal has reached a safe internal temperature before serving it to your friends and family.
Black Friday is just weeks away and many top retailers have already begun slashing prices ahead of the big day. Today only, Best Buy has cut the cost of this smart TempSpike wireless meat thermometer from ThermoPro to just $55. That's a $25 savings on its usual list price. This one-day deal expires tonight at 9:59 p.m. PT (12:59 a.m. ET), so be sure to make your purchase before then if you want to snag one at this price.
This smart meat thermometer is wireless, using Bluetooth to send information and alerts right to your phone. It has a range of 500 feet thanks to the included signal booster, which makes it easy for you to continue working on other things while you cook. Essentially, you'll insert the probe -- which has two sensors that monitor both the internal and ambient temperature -- and then that data will be accessible on your phone via the app.
The app includes nine presets for meat types and doneness levels -- approved by the US Department of Agriculture, no less -- and it will provide you with an estimated cooking time and a data graph. And you'll receive alert notifications so that you can cook your meat evenly every time. The signal booster has a battery life of up to three months per charge, while the probe will run up to 36 hours per charge. The probe is also made with IP67-rated stainless steel so it's dishwasher safe for easy cleanup.
