It’s the #1 tool that I would recommend putting on your Christmas list if you don’t have one already. And if you have one already, I’d say get a second one for that special someone in your life. What is it? The Thermapen instant-read thermometer, of course!
The Thermapen is my go-to grilling and BBQ tool in my arsenal, and I feel lost whenever I don’t have it around (luckily I keep my just-as-reliable-if-only-not-quite-as-instant Thermopop in the camper with me). With accurate readings within 3 seconds and accuracy to within 0.7 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s perfect for when you want to know the progress of your food in as timely a manner as possible. And it’s super-versatile — my wife uses her Thermapen for dying wool for her custom-dyed yarn business.
The main complaint I hear about it every time (on the rare occasions I do) is the price. And yes, $96 is not a small amount of money. But I look at it like this — having a high-quality instant-read thermometer such as the Thermapen will allow you to save money in the long term by cooking at home as opposed to going out for a high-quality steak.

While I would love for everyone to come and buy a Thermapen through my affiliate link, I know that may not be realistic. So that’s why I’m stoked to be giving one away just in time for Christmas!! There are many ways to win — commenting on this blog, Facebook, and Twitter! The ways to enter can be found in the Rafflecopter widget below.
The contest will end at 11:59pm EST this Friday, December 12th. A winner will be selected the following day and emailed. The winner has 24 hours to reply with his/her mailing address (so that the Thermapen can arrive just in time for the holidays). US residents only (sorry, Canadian friends). Good luck!!
