At long last, the sun is out and the weather is consistently warm — and you know what that means. Grilling season has just begun! It’s time to get all of your tools in order before it really kicks off in full force in a few weeks. Luckily, our team has no shortage of recommendations that’ll take your grilling game to the next level. If you need a new prep-and-carry system, look no further than this editor-approved find from OXO; if you’re in search of a top-tier grill press, you can’t go wrong with Made In’s, according to one of our editors.

I could go on, but let me get right to the point: One of our favorite tiny-but-mighty tools is on sale right now. ThermoWorks, the brand behind one of the best instant-read meat thermometers on the market, is shelving their classic gray color. All remaining stock of the gray Thermapen ONE is 30% off until it’s gone for good, which will probably occur sooner rather than later. Read on to find out why it’s worth the splurge.

What Is the Thermapen ONE?

This gem is the gold standard of instant-read thermometers — in fact, it earned the top spot on our “Best Of” list. The price makes sense when you consider all that it has to offer: unmatched speed (one second or less) and accuracy (± 0.5°F specification). It makes it so that there’s essentially zero chance of serving undercooked meat. The motion-sensing thermometer also has an automatic backlit display for low-light situations, and it also rotates depending on which way you’re holding it.

“This instant-read thermometer has come in clutch in so many situations, whether it’s pan-frying pork chops, oven-roasting a whole chicken, or grilling rib eyes,” one of our contributors, Bernadette, wrote. “The probe is easy to insert thanks to a tapered tip that sends out a reading in literally one second.” 

Bonus: You can also use it for liquids since it’s waterproof. “I’ve also used it to ensure that the water I add to yeast isn’t too hot, monitor the temperature for poaching liquids, and make sure my oil is perfectly heated for deep-frying,” Bernadette said.

What ThermoWorks Shoppers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.9/5

“The best review I could give it: I couldn’t live without this in my kitchen. Period.” — Alan G.

“Awesome little gadget. Most accurate thermometer I’ve owned, definitely will buy again.” — Alvaro D.

“I waited years to buy this Thermapen. My old one off brand finally gave out on me, and I was thrilled! This was the reason I needed to make the splurge on the Thermapen. Now I wish I would have just purchased it years ago. The quality is unmatched, and there’s no more waiting forever to get a correct temp reading. This will be the only thermometer I will use from now on. It is on the spendy side, but it’s worth every penny. I can’t speak on the longevity yet, but I hope to get many years out of it.” — Katie S.

Basically, once you grab this top-notch thermometer, you’ll never have to buy another again (and just it’s backed by a five-year warranty just in case). There’s no telling how much inventory is left of the gray version, so I recommend grabbing it ASAP. Also, that way, it’ll arrive before grilling season really gets going!
