Perhaps you've heard some people on some food websites raving about this amazing little tool? You know, the thermometer with a range of -58 to 572°F (-50 to 300°C), 1/10th of a degree precision, unparalleled accuracy, and a read time of under three seconds? Yep, that'd be the Thermapen from our friends at Thermoworks, and soon it could be yours!
A good instant-read thermometer is the only way to ensure that your roasts, steaks, chops, or burgers come out that perfect medium-rare every time. Forget about poking with your finger, relying on inaccurate timing guides, or the nick-and-peek method. You'll never have a piece of over- or undercooked meat again. But it's not just for meat: because of its range, the Thermapen can be used for candy making and deep frying, too, meaning this little guy is pretty much the only thermometer you'll ever need.
Thermapens go for a pretty penny—around $100—but you can win right here, just by answering this simple question in the comments: What's the first thing you'd make with a Thermapen if you won? And what color would you like?
These days, Thermapens come in red, orange, white, gray, yellow, green, blue, brown, black, pink, purple, tan, teal, British racing green, and cornflower blue.
This contest is closed, but don't worry...you'll have another chance to win. One winner will be chosen at random from among the commenters here. Prizes can be mailed to US or Canada only, and you can only win one Thermapen this summer. Standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
