ETI Superfast Thermapen - 234-407 Grey
The SuperFast Thermapen 4 uses advanced technology and includes a number of innovative features illustrated below - Click image to download PDF.
The patented 360° self-rotating display can be used in any position, in either hand. The unit incorporates an intelligent backlit display sensing light levels, automatically turning the backlight on/off in varying light conditions. The motion-sensing sleep mode automatically turns the Thermapen Mk4 on/off when set down or picked up, maximising battery life - 3000 hours in normal use.
The casing is washable and includes 'Biomaster' additive that reduces bacterial growth and the ergonomic rubber seal minimises the risk of the ingress of water, dust or food.
As well as being waterproof to IP67/67, it is still 'probably' the fastest reading contact thermometer on the market today . The true temperature of a product can be tested in just three seconds. The Thermapen Mk4 incorporates a reduced tip, stainless steel, food penetration probe (Ø3.3 x 115 mm) that conveniently folds back through 180° into the side of the instrument when not in use.

What makes the Thermapen so fast compared to other thermometers?
The main reason is the professional thermocouple technology that we use instead of mass-produced thermistor technology. Thermocouples are recommended by the most food standards agencies for measurement of cooked meat products and thin portions. We also use a reduced-diameter needle tip on the probe. Comparable professional meters cost £140 to £300 for the electronics and a similar probe!
How long should my Thermapen's batteries last?
Thermapen 4 battery life is 3000 hours. In the battery compartment you can enable and disable the auto-off feature. The auto-off feature will extend the life of the batteries. See your owner's manual for details.
Will the Thermapen tell me when my meat is done?
Not exactly. Instead it (very quickly) tells you the actual temperature and you decide if that is "done". We can give you the guidelines for food safety but you should consult your favorite cookbooks, TV shows and recipes for advice not only on safe temperatures but the best cooking temperatures for flavour and texture. Also remember that individual preference is very important.
Where should I place the probe tip to see if it's cooked?
When testing if your meat is cooked, the coldest part will be the very center of the thickest portion. With larger foods, you can take quick readings with your thermometer in several locations to verify that the entire portion is done. If you are chilling a food, the center of the thickest part will be the last to cool. Penetrate the food you are checking with the probe and place the very tip of the probe where you want to measure.
I've seen cheaper thermometers, why pay more for a Thermapen?
In use there's a big difference. Don't take our word for it. Check our reviews to read the many reasons written by others. Cheaper thermometers are limited by the technology that they use. These can be mass produced for just a few pennies to a few pounds. On the other hand, the Thermapen is hand-assembled and hand-tested in the UK and uses a professional thermocouple circuit design. This design costs more to make than cheaper, less capable thermometers.
