Thermometers

Well, I got a small bonus this year and decided to blow it all on a thermometer. I wanted a more expensive model but this will be more than enough for now!

I ordered the Thermoworks MTC ThermoWorks – MTC Mini Handheld Thermocouple with the small 113-151 probe. I would like a couple more probes after time and it is something can build on.

Does anyone else have one of these? And if so how do you like it?

Looks like they have a new Thermapen with a Ktype connector also!

Those K-type probes would be neat. I actually have a thermocouple I use with my defunct kiln. Might be cool to re-task it.

I have the same one as GB. Definitely the best I've used, and I use it nearly every day.

Boy do I agree!! A couple of years ago or so I ask Santa for one of these...
On Christmas Morning Santa left Two of them under the tree...Seems he couldn't remember if I said brown or black. The idea was to take back the color I didn't want....I said no way Jose...I kept them both.. Best thermometer I've had in my hands! Very fast and accurate!
