This Tker Meat Thermometer works great. It reads instantly and even tells you the temp out loud! I already had an electric meat thermometer but when I was able to get this one at a discount so I could try it out and give my feedback, I thought I'd give it a try, since the one I have doesn't talk. So it's pretty neat. And it's also got a button to press if you need the backlight, which is a nice feature. It comes one when you pull the probe out and off when you close it. And it's got a nice big loop for hanging.
