As much as I love my knives, Dutch oven, and coffee maker, there is only really one thing in my kitchen that I absolutely could not live without: my Thermapen ONE! It is magical and always helps me cook my best. What’s a Thermapen ONE, you ask? It’s a super-fast, incredibly accurate instant-read thermometer that ensures you’ll never undercook chicken, salmon, steak, bread, and the like. And right now, you can score your own for 30 percent off while it’s on sale!

Sure, there are other instant-read thermometers out there, but I have yet to find one I love and can rely on so faithfully as this Thermapen. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a perfect tool. It has never let me down, and I know that professional chefs sing its praises too. I was first an avid user of its predecessor, the Thermapen Mk4, but the newer version is even better. With grilling season in full swing and the brand’s early Labor Day Special underway, make sure to pick up this important gadget — along with all your other essential grilling tools — straight away.

Here’s everything I love about the Thermapen ONE:

  • It gives you full readings in just ONE second (thanks to “new advances in thermodynamics,” the company says). One second! This makes it “the first true one-second instant-read thermometer.”
  • It’s accurate to half a degree.
  • It has a brighter, even more responsive auto-backlight.
  • It has a 5-year warranty!
  • It has a newly designed battery compartment that’s easier to access.

Of course, the Mk4 was the gold standard of instant-read thermometers for a reason. So there are some things that stayed the same with the ONE. Here’s what the ONE has in common with the Mk4.

  • It has a folding probe that requires no buttons or knobs to operate.
  • It has motion-activated sleep and wake modes.
  • It’s waterproof to “IP67,” which means it’s resistant to dust and can be submerged in a meter of water for a half an hour and be totally fine (so it’ll absolutely withstand any kitchen accidents).
  • It has an auto-rotating display, so you can read it so matter how you’re holding it.
  • It has a “silver-based additive,” the company says,” that gives it “antimicrobial protection.”
  • It has a calibration certificate that is verified to national standards.
  • If you ever need to have your thermometer recalibrated, ThermoWorks still offers that service!

Incredible, right? You can get your Thermapen ONE on sale now on ThermoWorks’ website for a limited time. Take your pick of 10 fun colors, too (I’m partial to the classic red).
