Corded Meat Thermometer suggestions

Can you guys/gals suggest a corded meat thermometer? I have done some surfing but I'm not able to narrow it down with what I have seen.


TIA

Two very popular and well respected names are Polder and Taylor.

I have a Polder and love it. My brother borrowed it to use during the Christmas holiday and almost didn't give it back. Now he wants one.

You can find it cheaper on Amazon.

I just purchased one of these You can attach different probes here So you can have different probes for different uses.

It does not have the remote feature as some other units but I always left my remote next to the base anyway.

Thermoworks probe. See it here: ThermoWorks – Original Oven Thermometer / Timer. Classic design and simplicity at a GREAT price.

Whatever one you can find that takes real batteries (aa/aaa) and costs less than $20. These things have short shelf-lifes.

That unit is made in China, I think, and rebadged under a few names. Polder has one that is the same too.
