spice, i have the same exact thermometer, from wms-sonoma.
i swear by it; haven't over or under cooked a roast since i bought it. the whole trick is making sure the tip of the probe is in the center of the meat. it's a little tricky with chickens and smaller bone-in roasts.
the only instant read thermometer i have is built into a long grill fork with a little light. but it's also not truely instant read (ok, none of them really are. "instant" is an arbitrary term). i don't use it because you have to repeatedly pierce the meat to read the temp, and that's a huge no no on the grill.
