Default Wireless Meat Themometer

I'm looking for a true wireless meat thermometer. Many are called "wireless", but they still have wires.

Here is an example of one I found. I promise it's not a gay porn link.

https://meater.com

Anyone have this? Or any other suggestions?

LOL! I wasn't sure what would happen when I went to "meater". Thanks for the explanation.

That looks pretty cool. I have only used the wired/wireless versions which are pretty hit or miss and can be hard to program. Sometimes they work OK for years, sometimes they break after a few uses. They're usually around $50 so for double the money, you can get this one.

If you buy it, let us know how it works.

I personally spent more money on an instant read than i wanted to, and less money on a wired probe version-

reason being is because i've seen and read that the probes can give false readings when they are sticking out of the meat like that, because they will heat up quicker than the meat...

id rather have an alright ball park from a leave in probe, and then a super accurate instant read to get me where i need to be.

I'm looking for something that is truly wireless. Most are just like you posted - wiring to a transmitter, then wireless to a separate unit. I'm looking to go wireless from the sensor.

Mine has that too! Damn...we have grand prix's, powerstrokes, and GMG's.

I just don't have the bluetooth, so I have to go out and check.



This is actually a Christmas present for my wife. She wants one that she can stick in the oven and my daughter can't grab the wire and pull.

By this point, everybody and Bobby Flay's mother knows that a good thermometer is the best only way to guarantee that your meat is properly cooked. Forget timers, forget charts, and definitely forget the poke test. Temperature is accurate and unwavering. If you're cooking poultry, white meat is at its juiciest at around 150F, and dark meat at 165F+. For red meat, 120F is rare, 140F is medium, and 160F is dust. Get a thermometer; stop overcooking your meat. Capiche?

But! There's one little catch: Whether you're a doctor, a vet, a cook, or just curious by nature, a thermometer only works if you know where to stick it. You want to take the temperature of the center of the meat, but how do you know when you've hit the center?

This easy technique will help you hit that bull's-eye every time.

Point of clarification: We're not actually trying to hit the very center of the meat. What we're trying to do is find the coolest part of the meat. In the hypothetical smooth, frictionless world of Thermodynamics 101, that coolest point would correspond with the center. But in the real world, meat is not a homogeneous sphere. It has connective tissue, fat, muscle, water, air, bones—a full host of substances with varying rates of heat transfer. So simply aiming for the exact physical center doesn't exactly work.*

* This, by the way, is one of the reasons I generally advocate against making a leave-in probe thermometer the only thermometer in your arsenal. It's impossible to guess where the coolest part of the meat is going to be before the meat is cooked, thus the thermometer has a very good chance of giving you a false alarm. Use it as an early warning system at most.

When working with thinner cuts, like steaks, pork chops, or chicken breasts, the task becomes doubly hard, as that center section is so darn slim.

My trick is to not worry about hitting the center. Instead, aim for the right general area, but, rather than trying to gauge depth, just push the thermometer all the way through until it emerges on the other side (or, in the case of, say, a whole turkey or a bone-in prime rib, until the thermometer probe hits bone).

Update on the Meater. It's pretty nice. I bought the more expensive one so we can be anywhere in the house and check whatever we are cooking.

The only problem we've noticed is that it wont work if it's inside the Dutch oven with the lid on.

Cast iron blocks the signal, probably.
