It is Christmas list time. I need a new digital thermometer. I can't remember the brand of my last one, only that it was small and yellow. Any of you guys have one that you love? Accuracy and durability are what I am looking for.

I have this one from Northern Brewer.



Seems accurate, reads quickly and is well built.

It is spendy, but we got a Themopen (on sale). It is accurate and precise (two different things, but both are good to have). Reaction time is fast. Comes with a cal sheet, and it is traceable.

Use it to check the mash, and calibrate the dial thermometers on the kettles.

My wife really likes it for cooking, so it is not a unitasker.

The CDN one is great. NFS certified and you can calabrate it and it's waterproof. And only $16.

I just wish they made one with a longer probe. I've checked, they don't

One thermometer I love is my infrared beam thermometer. No actual contact with wort/mash, etc. so no worry about sanitation.
You need to allow for the fact that it only measures the surface of the substance measured, but once you have that figured out is very convenient.
