Red Thermapen MK4
With full readings in only 2 to 3 seconds, the Super-Fast® Thermapen is the world's best in speed and accuracy. Advanced technology makes the new Thermapen Mk4 even more intuitive than previous models. Hold it in any direction and the display automatically rotates right-side-up so you can read it in any position - in either hand, straight up or down; read temperatures without cocking your head. This is the best thermometer!
The reviews are in and Allen & Petersen is amazed by the new and improved Thermapen. This is the fastest and most accurate thermometer - displaying tempatures in less then 4 seconds. Alaska's best kitchen thermometer has arrived - Imagine how your moose roast or caribou meat would just fall apart at the perfect tempature. The gell tip is also perfect for jelly's and jam - reaching 220°F has never be so easy and accurate. Leave behind, a dried out turkey, burnt sugars, and overdone steaks... Now trending across the USA - Thermapen is taking cooking to the next level. Get yours today.
The Thermapen Mk4 knows when it's dark and turns on the backlight for you, making it easy to read at dusk or in complete darkness with maximum battery life. Or, just touch the sensor window anytime with your finger and the display lights up. Leave the probe open and the Mk4 stays on while you use it. Set it down, and Sleep Mode saves battery power. Pick the Mk4 up, and it turns on again instantly. Close the probe when you're done cooking and the unit stays off for storage. High-tech, intuitive, fast and accurate.
Originally manufactured the Thermapen in gray only. Then added all the food-safety color-coding versions. Many people in the food industry use color coding to prevent cross contamination by dedicating tools to specific food products. That way, a knife, cutting board or thermometer that is used for say, raw poultry, won't end up contaminating fresh vegetables like salad greens. That was the reason we did multiple colors for the Thermapen. Of course most people buy a color variety simply according to personal preference.

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 USDA 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 flavor and texture. Also remember that individual preference is very important.
Why is the Thermapen so much faster than other cooking thermometers?
The main reason is the professional thermocouple technology that we use instead of mass-produced thermistor technology. Thermocouples are recommended by the USDA 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! Some improvements were made in the sensor manufacturing process and the probe assembly in the new Thermapen Mk4 to make it just slightly faster than the original Super-Fast® Thermapen.
