Life in the kitchen is simpler when you know exactly when your dish will be done. Our innovative thermometer takes the guesswork out of roasting by anticipating when your meat will be ready – and alerting you when it's done. Simply insert the high-accuracy probe into your meat, and then program the easy-to-use home unit to your desired doneness. You'll be able to monitor the temperature of your food and the exact number of minutes until it's cooked to your liking.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible... I have used this thermometer twice and it failed on the second use. The display reads Hi for temperature so I believe it's the probe that malfunctioned. The power button inconsistently works. I need to remove the batteries to turn it off. If I could give it a zero star rating I would.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stops working Bought it and it was great...for a few times. They exchanged it for me after the manufacturer wouldn't email me back. I got about 3 uses out of it and it stopped working. It's not the batteries and the connections and cord are fine. I agree with all the other reviews...complicated to set (how long do you hold the buttons and which buttons?) Wouldn't turn off. First unit would read the temperature as being over cooked...when I put it in a raw tri tip. Last unit I tried to use it for the 3rd time and display was fading out and wouldn't turn on.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ridiculously unusable buttons It seems to me that one should be able to use a thermometer without needing to know the secret sequence of buttons. Press for 3 seconds? Press for 4 seconds? While Apple Inc can create an intuitive device without labeled buttons. Williams Sonoma has not yet figured this out yet.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought on a Whim Didn't do my due diligence by looking at reviews before buying this thermometer. Only way to turn it off is to take the batteries out. The "Meat Doneness" mode doesn't work - can"t change the type of meat I'm cooking by holding the button that looks like a sun (per instructions). Would return it but I didn't save the box it came in.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Way to Turn This OFF! Okay, I exaggerate...a little. I lucked into turning this thing off once. It isn't that I didn't follow directions, because I did. I held the little symbol to the left down for 4 seconds. It didn't turn off, it just went into a different mode. Argggh! It shouldn't be impossible to turn off an electronic device. I've to take the batteries out to turn this thing off a few times already. Frustration with this design and/or faulty instructions aside, the anticipation feature is fantastic. It works as advertised, but turning this off is turning me off.
