#1 MEATER Plus Wireless smart thermometer

MEATER is a relatively new brand, which claims to be the “first truly wireless smart thermometer.” The MEATER Plus improves upon its original model. Many wireless grill thermometers don’t work. Completely wireless—there’s often still a wire from the thermometer to the base unit—but the MEATER Plus is completely wire-free. It can also measure the internal temperature of your meat and the ambient temperature.

You can choose from different cuts of meat and specify whether you want your meat to be cooked medium-rare, medium or well-done. The MEATER Plus will guide you through each step. It will give you an estimate of the time it will take to cook your meat to achieve your desired doneness, and how long it should rest after it has been removed from the oven or grill. It was very easy to use. Our tester also appreciated that it could save the results for future reference. You can customize the alerts to your liking.

It was accurate in all of its temperature tests. The fact that it makes grilling nearly foolproof, according to our reviewer, is the best part. This meat thermometer will please any grill master, novice or expert. If one probe isn’t enough for you, the MEATER Block features four probes, a block to hold them, and a touchscreen standalone mode if you don’t want to use an app.

#2 ThermoPro TP20 Wireless Metat Thermometer

ThermoPro, a trusted name in meat thermometers, offers a wide selection of models including four-probe models as well as models with extended wireless ranges. The TP20 has two probes and a wireless range up to 300 feet. This allows you to monitor the steaks and chops while you are away from the grill. It includes a base unit and wireless remote, so you won’t need to add an app to your phone, and the large LCD displays on the base and remote are backlit so you’ll be able to read them in low light conditions.

The TP20 has presets for nine types of meats using USDA recommendations, and all of the presets can be reset to your preferences, which are saved when the unit is turned off. It also features a timer function. You can set the timer to either count up or down to allow for longer cooking sessions. The probe wires can withstand temperatures up to 716 degrees. However, if the probe is damaged, the company will replace it free of charge. The thermometer can read temperatures from 32 to 572 degrees Fahrenheit.

The TP20’s upgrades were appreciated by our tester who had previously used wireless ThermoPro models. The probe ports on transmitter are labeled so that you don’t have the hassle of remembering which one is in the meat or which one is in your chicken. The straight probe design also ensures that they don’t slip during cooking. Our tester praised the TP20’s accuracy and functionality.

#3 NutriChef Smart Wireless Grill Thermometer

The NutriChef Bluetooth thermometer offers everything you need for basic grilling or remote monitoring. It can be connected to your smartphone with an indoor range range of 100 feet or an outdoor range range of 200 feet. If you wander outside the range, you’ll get a push notification on your phone, so you won’t accidentally go too far from the grill or oven. The stainless steel probes of the PWIRBBQ60 model can withstand temperatures up to 482°F, while the upgraded stainless-steel cables can withstand temperatures up to 716°F.

This app uses two probes to monitor multiple foods at once. The app will notify you when the temperature is reached. You can choose from the preset cooking temperatures included or set your own. The backlit LCD LCD allows you to read the unit in any light. The display cycles between the temperatures being monitored.

Our reviewer found that the app was easy to use and the temperature readings were accurate in all her tests. As with all meat thermometers of this kind with wired probes, we expect that the wires will eventually fail—which is why we appreciate the more modest price tag.

#4 Bfour Bluetooth Meat Thermometer

Not only does this digital thermometer look sleek—it won the 2019 Red Dot Design Award—but with six stainless steel probes, it’s also perfect for monitoring large quantities of food, whether that’s different items simultaneously (there are 11 presets for types of food and doneness levels) or one big Thanksgiving turkey. This is the beauty of the Bluetooth thermometer. You can use six probes to cover the different thicknesses of meat to ensure the meat is cooked to its core.

It is also super easy to set it up. All you have to do is download an app on your smartphone or tablet to get the temperature and time display—complete with an alarm function for promptly alerting you when your meal is done. The transmission distance is 196 feet outdoors and 100 feet indoors. The temperature ranges between 33 and 572 degrees making it ideal for grills and ovens.

#5 Inkbird IBT-4XP Grill Tormometer

This meat thermometer by Inkbird is waterproof, so you can safely use it outside in any weather—and it’s magnetic, so it sticks right to the side of your grill. The product comes with a rechargeable battery that can be charged via USB cable. This will make it easy to replace your batteries without having to go to the store. It takes around three hours to fully charge the battery. The charge lasts 40 hours before needing to be plugged in again.

The IBT-4XP Grill Thermometer has three meat probes and an ambient probe. This allows you to remotely read your cooking temperature (distances up to 150 feet). This item can withstand heat up to 572 degrees for short-term cooking or 482 degrees for meals that cook much longer. When it’s time for you to remove your meat, an alarm will sound on your phone and device.

#6 The MeatStick X Wireless Grill Thermometer

You want your thermometer to work well on the grill. But the MeatStick does more. Because it’s truly wireless, it can be used with a rotisserie, and because it’s waterproof, it can be used inside a sous vide bag. It can also withstand extreme temperatures. The internal sensor can handle up to 212 degrees—which is the maximum it will encounter when it’s fully inserted in meat. The ceramic handle sensor can measure the ambient temperature up to 572 degrees. This high threshold allows it to handle both oven and grill temperatures easily. It can also be used in deep fryers.

It’s hard to imagine a situation this thermometer can’t handle. The MeatStick X is an upgrade to the original MeatStick. It also includes an app that monitors temperature and sends alerts. It also assists with cooking. The stick’s battery can operate for up to 24 hours before it needs to recharge in its holder, so you’ll be set for long cooks. And when the job is done, it’s dishwasher safe so it’s ready for its next job.
