First Look: ThemoWorks ChefAlarm

By October 31, 2013

Follow me on:

ThemoWorks created the ThemoPen, an instant read thermometer that seems to have found its way into the pocket of almost every professional chef. Known for making fast reading, highly accurate thermometer and all kinds of temperature measuring devices, their new product is the ChefAlarm. This little gadget is less expensive than the ThemoPen, costing just under $60USD and does much more. Yes, it will give a fast read (about 5 seconds) of any temperature up to 572 degrees F. with a heat resistant probe that can withstand temperatures up to 700 degrees F. Add to this, a timer that counts up or down, constant minimum and maximum temperature display, and an alarm to tell you when foods have reached a desired temperature. It is even magnetic so it can be attached to any metal surface. This is a great way to monitor temperatures in the oven, on the smoker, or even on the grill.

I have a hard time paying $100 for their regular thermometer (although I really want one), but $59 for this one is tempting … And 5 seconds for the read time isn’t bad. I think I paid close to $30 for one at Target that lasted all of 5 cooks.

I have two products by these folks, both excellent. Thermopen is pricey yes, but ACCURATE AND FAST! I also have the oven thermometer which is similar to the new product but mine was around $24 on Amazon. I would buy both again and the company responds to queries right away and does what’s needed. A stand up company- no I don’t have stock in it-yet.
