Editor's Notes

March 05, 2019:

Cooks who are in the market for a new thermometer are most likely to want a digital read-out, but we did include a reliable, high-quality analog choice for anyone who might prefer the option to see the Farenheit and Celcius temperature at the same time. We chose a wireless, oven-safe probe model for the top spot, the Thermo Pro TP21 with a lot of bells and whistles, because it's got a very functional interface and it isn't difficult to figure out how to use it.
