Holiday Giveaway: The Amazing Thermapen Thermometer

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. We've been very happy with the Thermapen, a high-quality, fast and accurate digital thermometer. You'll never have a piece of over or undercooked meat again.

It's head-and-shoulders above the competition with a stunning 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. Because of its wide range, you won't need a separate meat, candy, or deep-fry thermometer—a singe tool does all three tasks, and how.

"Seriously, you'll get it and wonder how you survived all these years without it," raved one of our readers.

All of you would probably already have one, except it's nearly $100. Money well spent in our opinion, but wouldn't it be nicer to win one?

Thanks to the nice folks at Thermapen, we have one to give away here to a lucky Serious Eats reader! To enter to win: tell us, what's the last thing you stuck a thermometer into?

You have until 3 p.m. ET tomorrow (December 1) to enter. One winner will be chosen at random from among the commenters. Contest winners are limited to residents of the continental U.S., and you can only win once during the duration of the Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway contest. The standard Serious Eats contest rules apply.
