I’m in the market for a good meat thermometer, any recommendations? Are thermapens worth the extra cash?
I haven't used a nicer, or more expensive model; seeing as my family likes to opt out for the cheapest things they can find. I will say that I believe investing in a good thermometer is worth while. My experience with run-of-the-mill, super cheap, thermometers has been awful! It's so embarrassing to serve food, that is undercooked, to guests. My suggestion is to definitely invest in a higher quality thermometer; the generic ones you find at places like Walmart, Safeway, Raleys, etc., are very inaccurate, and stop working after one or two uses.
***Edit: I just realized I misread your question. My apologies if what I said is redundant.
