Indeed, the Kizen Digital Meat Thermometer will ensure that you'll never have to stress about too-rare or too-dry foods again. Just poke it into your dinner-to-be and you'll have a temperature readout in three seconds. Use it for making medium-rare steaks, properly cooked poultry, or satisfyingly seared salmon. But not only that; you can also use the Kizen to test frying oil, gauge the done-ness of casseroles and desserts and more, without the guesswork. It'll even help you make candy and jams! And oh yeah: It's waterproof and super easy to clean!

Don't chew on this deal too long: With over 50,000 five-star reviews, this tool is a hot (heh) item.

It's not just for hot foods either: It can read temps from −58 to 572 degrees via its backlit LCD display. (Prefer your temp readings in Celsius? Done, with the press of a button.) There's also a handy chart with popular cooking temperatures displayed right on the unit. And oh yeah: It automatically shuts off after 10 minutes to save battery life.

The Kizen Digital Meat Thermometer has a retractable probe for easy storage in a drawer, but it also has a magnetic back and hanging loop, so you can stick it on your fridge or display it proudly on the side of your grill.

"An instant-read thermometer is a must for anyone grilling or cooking meat, poultry or fish," said one happy customer. "This is the secret to not overcooking! The best food thermometer I have ever owned. Would definitely recommend to my friends or anyone looking to purchase a thermometer. Good value too!"

A thermometer like this is perfect to have on hand for grilling to get those steaks and burgers just right. It's also a must-have for cooking turkeys, rib roasts and more over the holidays.

"We were very happy with the Kizen meat thermometer," raved a shopper. "We used it to cook a 16-pound prime rib on Christmas and it was perfect! Customer service has been outstanding. I received a follow-up email with a compilation of suggestions for most effective use and another reminding me that the product is under warranty should we have any issues. We are very satisfied!"

P.S.: The Kizen is not just great for food: Use it to gauge the right temp for milk bottles, bath water, even cocktails!

Versatile and precise: Add one of these to your cart before this hot deal runs cold.
