We’re back in the kitchen for today’s review and I’ve got the MeasuPro digital thermometer but this one is very much different than the other’s I’ve reviewed. This thermometer has a probe that stays in your meat while the display stays outside on your stove and monitors the temperature and then let’s you know when it’s done. It’s a great product overall but it might be a bit overwhelming for some people. Read on to learn more..

Let’s start out with a video unboxing and then continue on:
The packaging is everyone’s favorite sealed plastic clamshell style.
Once you get the package open you’ll find a battery, user guide, thermometer and probe.
Included is the probe which is attached a a braided steel cable that seems very durable, it’s thin enough so that you can close the oven with the probe inside as that’s the idea of it.
The thermometer itself is made of plastic and it’s in two parts really with a hinge in the middle separating the control panel from the LCD display. There are numerous buttons on the control panel for power, Celsius and Fahrenheit, memory, alert on and off, meat, taste and alarm stop. There’s a jack on the side that resembles an audio jack which is where you plug the probe into.
On the back or bottom you’ll find two magnets along with the battery compartment. The magnets allow you to attach the thermometer to your stove if it’s magnetic.
The display can be titled up and locked into place so it sort of resembles a laptop.
To use the thermometer for cooking you can select the type of meat you’re cooking and then you can select the temperature or how you want it done, like rare, medium and well for example.
For testing I cooked a roast with potatoes and tossed some bacon on there as well. I picked more of a medium doneness and it worked fine. I checked the temperature with one of my other thermometers and it was basically the same result, just a degree difference, but this can happen as it’s hard to get it in the exact same spot, but for me it’s close enough and works well.
When you’re cooking there is actually a pre-alarm that will go off when it’s close to the selected doneness so you can check it.
As an ex-chef I like this product but it might be a bit overwhelming for the average person. My wife doesn’t cook much and this is meant to make things easier, but she wouldn’t use it as it’s too complicated for her. That’s just how she is and sadly that’s how a lot of people are.
It is a decent product overall though, and I like it a lot, but I don’t really think I would use it that much honestly. I think it’s just easier to use my instant read thermometer.
Objectively it’s a great product, personally I think it’s a bit over complicated for the average person and they wouldn’t use it.
