Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Tech help for that turkey. A company called Apption Labs makes a completely cordless temperature probe called Meater, that communicates with a phone or tablet using Bluetooth LE. Co-founder Joseph Cruz…
“We’ve taken all of the electronics that would fit outside the oven or grill, miniaturized it, and put it all inside the probe.”
Even the recharging wooden block for Meater is nicely styled. It sells for 69 dollars. For 99 dollars, Thermoworks makes the Thermapen, widely used by the top chefs in the world. Marketing VP Tim Robinson…
"So it’s got a big …bold digit on it. There are no buttons, those are called food traps in the industry. So you swing it open and it’s on and you close it and it’s off.”
If you want a probe that stays in what you’re cooking, check out the Chef Alarm from Thermoworks too. It’s priced at 59 dollars.
