Best Oven Thermometer?

I saw Alton using one that is digital and magnetically hangs on the front of the oven and thought that seems pretty sharp.

I need one, dont own one, but am about to start working with salami and need a good meat meter.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Polder makes a remote digital thermometer.

It has a probe for the meat that connects to the control box via a wire. you can measure internal temp, set a temperature alarm and it also has a timer. It costs about $25-$30.

Taylor has a whole line of thermometers, both digital and analog. They are mostly instant reads that are not left in the meat during cooking as the Polder is.

Another vote for the Polder with a probe attached. I've only used it a couple of times, and WOW. No more squinting at the dial. No more guess work. Great!

Taylor makes all kinds of thermometers ... and they do make a line comperable to the Polder probe model Andy M. was talking about (where the probe goes into the meat and is attached the unit outside the oven via a cord). I know - I have one I bought at Target about 5 years ago for about $15.

I actually got mine because I saw Alton Brown use one - and recognized it (you can't miss the colors).
