This was a bit of a splurge but it has been so well worth it. I first saw this instant-read thermometer on America’s Test Kitchen and did not order it at first because the price put me off. I had a little thermometer that I really kind of liked and it worked just fine, but it was a bit pokey in indicating temperature and kind of meh, but it was ATK best buy and I did get along with that for several years. So when America’s Test Kitchen sent an email that they were giving a discount on their “most trusted” Thermopen, I just had to go for it.
And I am glad I did. I am beyond thrilled with my Thermopen. No kidding. It is great for casseroles and even better for meat temperatures.But it is best for me for pound cakes. I know the skewer thing works, but this makes me feel so much better.
Nothing worse than slicing into a pound cake and finding out it is a bit raw inside. Blech. Yeah really blech.
