1. ThermoPro TP20 – Long Range Wireless Meat Thermometer

ThermoPro TP20

  • Temperature Range: 32 - 572°F (0 - 300°C)
  • Temperature Accuracy: ±1.8°F (±1°C)
  • Remote Range: 300 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 2 (2 included)

Starting us off is this ThermoPro TP20, and it basically consists of a transmitter and receiver, which can communicate with each other at a long distance of up to 300 feet.

The transmitter contains two probe ports and two probes are actually included in the pack, which are designed to withstand a temperature of up to 716°F, and allow you to monitor the temperature of two kinds of meat at a time.  

On the other end, the receiver features a large backlit LCD screen for easy reading and features USDA approved temperature presets for 9 types of meat (fish, ground beef, veal, chicken, pork, beef, poultry, lamb and ground poultry).

The receiver also has 5 USDA approved presets for doneness levels of the different types of meat, as well as timer and temperature settings, which are saved even when powered off.

However, this product is quite costly, but there is a newer version, the ThermoProTP11S, which is a lot cheaper, and it has these same features, with a sleeker design. It only has one probe though and both options lack a carrying case.

Pros:

  • Wide 300 feet remote range
  • Two probe capacity with 2 probes included for monitoring two types of meat at a time
  • A large backlit LCD display on the receiver
  • USDA approved presets for 9 types of meat
  • 5 USDA approved presets for doneness levels

Cons:

  • Quite costly
  • Carrying case not included

2. ThermoPro TP-07 – Easy-To-Use Wireless Meat Thermometer

ThermoPro TP-07

  • Temperature Range: 32 - 572°F (0 - 300°C)
  • Temperature Accuracy: ±1.8°F (±1°C)
  • Remote Range: 300 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 1 (1 included)

ThermoPro’s TP-07 is also a remote-control type of wireless meat thermometer, meaning that it comes as a transmitter and receiver package. These two come pre-synchronized from the manufacturer, making them ready to use straight out of the box.

All you need to do is insert the batteries, which are also included in the set, to both components and you are good to go.

However, the set’s transmitter only contains one probe port, which means you can hook up just a single probe to monitor 1 type of meat at a time.

On the bright side, the two components can communicate at a distance of up to 300 feet, which allows you to keep tabs on the cooking process while carrying out other activities within your compound.

More features include preset, USDA approved temperature levels for 9 types of meat, as well as preset doneness levels (rare, medium-rare, medium, medium-well and well-done), which are also USDA approved. However, no carrying case is included for storing the set.

Pros:

  • Ready-to-use pre-synchronized transmitter and receiver
  • Long 300-foot wireless range
  • Preset USDA-approved temperature levels for 9 types of meat
  • Preset USDA-approved doneness levels

Cons:

  • Only accommodates 1 probe
  • Lacks a carrying case

3. Nutrichef PWIRBBQ80 – Best Bluetooth Meat Thermometer

Nutrichef PWIRBBQ80

  • Temperature Range: Up to 482°F
  • Remote Range: 200 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 6 (2 included)

Though it has a relatively short 200-foot wireless range, this product from Nutrichef is the best Bluetooth piece because this range is quite long as compared to other similar kits.

Additionally, it features 6 probe ports, which allow for simultaneous monitoring of 6 different types of meat. However, only 2 probes are included in the pack.

The thermometer utilizes Bluetooth technology, connecting to your smartphone (iOS or Android) through a mobile app that is free to download from the respective stores.

Once connected, your phone acts as a receiver, allowing you to monitor the cooking temperature and the app pushes alert notifications to sound the phone’s alarm when the set temperature is reached. 

Other features include a 200-foot wireless range, which is relatively short, an instant-read backlit LCD display on the transmitter and heavy-duty stainless-steel metal probes that can withstand high temperatures

Pros:

  • 6 probe ports allow you to monitor the temperature of 6 different types of meat at once
  • Connects to iOS or Android smartphones, then pushes alerts and notifications
  • Instant read backlit LCD display
  • Heavy-duty stainless-steel metal probes that can withstand high temperatures

Cons:

  • Relatively short wireless range
  • Only comes with 2 of the 6 probes

4. ThermoPro TP-08S – Wireless Meat Thermometer with Food & Ambient Temp Alarm

ThermoPro TP-08S

  • Temperature Range: 32 - 572°F (0 - 300°C)
  • Temperature Accuracy: ±1.8°F (±1°C)
  • Remote Range: 300 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 2 (2 included)

ThermoPro is one of the best brands in this segment and with their TP-08S, it is easy to see why. The unit is equipped with food and ambient temperature alarms, which allow you to set your preferred food and high/low temperature for your grill so as to know when more fuel is required.

This feature makes it one of the best digital thermometers for smoking because a consistent amount of fuel is required for perfect meat smoking.

Other than that, the unit has a countdown and count-up timer, which can be active as the meat and grill temperature is being monitored while a 300-foot range allows you to keep tabs on the cooking process from quite a distance.

More features include a protective rubber sleeve case, lost link alert and a backlit LCD display on the receiver for easy reading. However, no carrying case is included in the set.

Pros:

  • Food and ambient temperature alarms for easy monitoring
  • Countdown and count-up timer
  • Long 300-foot range
  • Protective rubber sleeve case
  • Lost link alert

Cons:

  • Carrying case not included

5. ThermoPro TP22 – Good Wireless Meat Thermometer

  • Temperature Range: 32 - 572°F (0 - 300°C)
  • Temperature Accuracy: ±1.8°F (±1°C)
  • Remote Range: 300 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 2 (2 included)

Even though it costs quite a lot, ThermoPro’s TP22 combines a long 300-foot wireless range and 10 types of meat temperature settings, as well as various doneness levels, which are all USDA approved.

Additionally, the unit features a 99hr 59min countdown and count-up timer, which is ideal for long cooks, and beep alarms plus turning on of the backlight once the preset temperature is reached. Combined, these features make it one of the best remote meat thermometers.

Other features include a hassle-free setup due to the pre-synchronized transmitter and receiver and a wire hook for easy mounting. However, the transmitter is not waterproof and therefore, you should not leave it outside after use.

Pros:

  • Long 300-foot wireless range
  • 10 types of meat temperature settings that are USDA approved
  • Various doneness levels that are USDA approved
  • 99hr 59min countdown and count-up timer
  • Wire hook for easy mounting

Cons:

  • Quite costly
  • Not waterproof

  • Temperature Range: 32 - 572°F (0 - 300°C)
  • Temperature Accuracy: ±1.8°F (±1°C)
  • Remote Range: 164 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 6 (2 included)

If you thought 10 presets were many, Uvistare’s Chugod meat thermometer features preset temperatures for 11 types of meat as well as their various doneness levels, which are all USDA approved.

With its Bluetooth connectivity, all these settings are controlled via a smartphone app but the downside to this technology is that you get a short 164-foot wireless range.

On the bright side, the piece is equipped with 6 probe channels, which allow you to monitor up to 6 different types of meat at a time, though only two probes are included. The rest you have to buy separately.

Other features include a portable carrying bag for convenient storage and a convenient winder design that takes care of the messy probe coils.

Pros:

  • USDA-approved 11 meat presets and various doneness levels
  • Convenient smartphone app control
  • 6 probe ports allow for monitoring of up to 6 different types of meat

  • Temperature Range: 32 - 572°F (0 - 300°C)
  • Temperature Accuracy: ±1.8°F (±1°C)
  • Remote Range: 196 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 6 (2 included)

Comlife’s meat thermometer is also a Bluetooth smartphone type that features 6 probe ports, with the option of 2 probes in the standard package or 6 probes in a slightly more expensive set.

However, Bluetooth’s major limitation is range and this piece only gives a range of 196 feet outdoors and 98 feet indoors.

On the good side, you get 11 preset temperature and timer settings for 11 different kinds of foods, a backlit LCD display on the transmitter for instant reading and a magnetic back panel for easy mounting on iron surfaces.

Other features include highly accurate probes (to ±1.8°F), with a range of 32 - 572°F. However, these probes are not dishwasher safe for easy maintenance.

Pros:

  • 6 probe channels enable you to monitor up to 6 types of meat at once
  • 11 temperature and timer presets
  • Backlit LCD display for instant reading
  • Magnetic back panel for easy mounting

Cons:

  • Temperature Accuracy: ±1.8°F (±1°C)
  • Remote Range: 300 feet
  • Probes Capacity: 1 (1 included)

If you are on a tight budget, ThermoPro TP09 is an affordable wireless meat thermometer that you should consider and despite this, it has a long 300-foot wireless range as well as a wide temperature range of 16 - 572°F (-9 - 300°C).

The unit also comes preprogrammed with 9 types of meat temperature and timer settings, and a 6.5-inch long step-down probe that digs deep into your chunks of meat.

However, the thermometer only features a single probe port and the included probe might have increased inaccuracies over after long periods of use but a new one will be given free of charge under the 1-year replacement warranty.    

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Long 300-foot wireless range
  • Wide 16 - 572°F temperature range

  • Temperature Range: -22 - 572°F (-30 - 300°C)
  • Probes Capacity: 4 (2 included)

This unit is the most expensive wireless meat thermometer in this review, but with the high cost, you get a 4-probe capacity transmitter with 2 probes included, which give a wide temperature measurement range of -22 to 572°F or -30 to 300°C.

Additionally, these probes are heat resistant up to 716°F and come with winders for neat coil storage after use.

You also get Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone, multiple preset temperatures and a long 200-hour battery-life from the 2 included AA batteries. However, no carrying case is included.

Being a Bluetooth based thermometer, you get 11 different preset temperatures on the iOS or Android smartphone app, and the transmitter is fitted with a large backlit LCD display for instant reading at a glance.

Other features include heavy-duty metal probes and steel cables, push notifications and alarms from the mobile app and a 200-foot outdoor wireless range (100 feet indoors), which is quite short. Also, the probes are not dishwasher safe, which means manual cleaning is required.

How to Buy the Best Wireless Meat Thermometer

How to Buy the Best Wireless Meat Thermometer

Photo: ThermoPro

1. Temperature Range

The first thing to consider when selecting a wireless meat thermometer is the temperature range. Since it is for cooking, the most important value is the upper figure.

Ultimately, the higher the temperature that the unit can withstand, the better because it will be able to handle the hot grill cooking temperatures without incurring any damages. For instance, those that go up to 572°F are better than the 482°F variety.

2. Temperature Accuracy

It is essential that the thermometer gives you accurate readings. Otherwise, you won’t be able to maintain the meat or grill temperature as required, which may result in over or undercooking of the food.

3. Remote Range

Some may argue that a short remote range is enough if you live in a small house but the wireless signal is usually affected by walls and other obstacles. A longer-range means the signal is powerful and can penetrate deep into the building. Therefore, the longer the range, the better.

4. Probes

Single probe thermometers are quite limited because they can only monitor one type of meat at a time. However, they are very affordable.

On the other hand, dual probe thermometers let you monitor the temperature of two types of meat or the meat and ambient temperature inside the grill. This type is very common because of its practicality.

Some even have 6 probe channels and the more they are, the better because you get to monitor multiple types of meat at once.

5. Remote Control or App

All wireless meat thermometers fall in either one of these categories. Remote control units come as a transmitter and receiver set, with the receiver containing specialized buttons to help you monitor and make any adjustments to the settings.

On the other hand, app thermometers come as Bluetooth enabled transmitter kits, with downloadable control apps for newer iOS and Android versions. This setup converts your phone into a receiver, giving you a convenient touch control panel.

The only downside to app-controlled thermometers is that they usually have a shorter remote range than the remote-control type.

6. Timers and Alerts

Timers and alerts are very important for long cooks. Since you cannot stand by the grill for a whole 1 or 2 hours waiting for your meat to cook, a timer function will help follow up for you.

An alert system, which is usually in the form of alarms, beeps or push-notifications, will show you when the time is up or when the temperature is too high or too low. This makes it very easy to cook remotely. That said, ensure the unit you buy has these two features built-in.

7. LCD Display Screen

All digital wireless meat thermometers feature LCD displays and for easy reading, they should be backlit. This way, you won’t struggle to view the temperature reading in the dark.

Conclusion

In conclusion, selecting a wireless meat thermometer might not be as easy as it seems. This is because there are a lot of technicalities and factors to consider beforehand, but all these are laid out above for easier understanding.

Therefore, at the end of it all, you should be in a better position to pick the best wireless meat thermometer that suits your cooking needs.
