Around the middle of November, everyone becomes an expert in heat conduction and the Maillard reaction. Stay one step ahead with the tool Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio calls “the best meat thermometer I’ve ever used” for producing “perfect meat every time,” on sale today for 26 percent off.
Unlike standard meat thermometers, the Meater has two probes: one that measures internal temperature and one that measures ambient temperature, which helps account for finicky ovens or grills. It’s wireless, Bluetooth-enabled, and comes with an app that calculates perfect cooking time based on your specifications. No need to open the oven door and let in a gust of cold air to get a reading — just leave the thermometer in the roast and monitor on your phone.
Colicchio recommends the original Meater, which comes with a 33-foot range. The on-sale Meater Plus has a 165-foot wireless range that allows winter grill masters to check on their roasts from indoors instead of huddling over the grill in parkas. (They might do this anyway.)
