Depends on who you listen to.  Some are happy with a few seconds.  Some say it takes longer than a few seconds.  Thermapen is 3 or less - I believe.

You might want to check out this one out Extech THERMOMETER $39.99 with free shipping.  I found some rewiews on another site and they were all good.

I probably spent the price of 3 Thermapens over the last 5 years on one that I could rely on, so be careful out there.

anyone who wants the new splash proof modle send an email to kevin@thermoworks.com he has a few of the new splash proof "open box/return" units left
I got one for 70.00 and it doesn't even appear that the box had been opened, works perfect and still had the electrostatic cover on the lcd,
accuracy is gaurantee'd and comes with the certificate of accuracy and manual.
he had a couple different colors last we spoke, but cant say now.
hope this helps some still wanting one

Thermapen here too on everything including pizza... next to my pig tail flipper I don't need much else when I cook except a glass of vino or beer.

That's a nice find. A few seconds slower then the Thermopen, but plenty fast. The the temperature range is more then adequate for home use.

I LIKE that!

Limited Time:
Buy 5: Only $19 each!

At that price I would mind having a couple of them.

If anyone else wants one, I will buy 5 and keep 2 or 3

and sell the rest for what it cost.

Let me know!
