The ThermoPro TP610 is ThermoPro’s first dual-probe instant-read thermometer.
The TP610 is an instant-read thermometer that can also act as an oven thermometer by inserting another probe into the probe port on top.
With a 42-inch cable, this will allow you to monitor food in the oven as well as the stovetop at the same time.
At a reasonable price tag of around $22, the ThermoPro TP610 has a lot to offer.
In this review of the ThermoPro TP610 Dual Probe Instant Read Thermometer, I will examine its features, usability, durability, accuracy, and price to see if it’s a meat thermometer worth your hard-earned money.
Note: My TP610 model is arriving tomorrow, until then, consider this an overview of its features.
ThermoPro TP610 Dual Probe Instant Read Meat Thermometer
What target audience is the ThermoPro TP610 addressing?
I see how the TP610 would appeal to the casual cook that wants to use a meat thermometer for both the stovetop and the oven or grill.
I find many instances where people will own an instant-read thermometer, but not an oven or grill thermometer, or vice versa.
The TP610 is for the people that want the flexibility of both, but they don’t want to pay for two devices.
The TP610 represents a “taking care of two birds with one stone” scenario.
That’s a noble pursuit, but often times when a device tries to do two separate tasks it falls short.
Is the TP610 able to do double-duty and perform just as well as two separate thermometers?
I will find out when my device arrives and report back.
Features of the ThermoPro TP610
Here are the important features of the ThermoPro TP610:
- 180° Rotating LCD split-display screen
- One folding probe and one wired probe
- Lithium-rechargeable battery
- Bottle Opener
- IpX5 Waterproof
- Magnetic back
- Accuracy rating +-0.9°F up to 212°F, then +-3.0 up to 572°F
I will detail the TP610’s usability when it arrives. I’m excited to test its ability to monitor food in the oven while also checking the temperature of food cooking in a pan on the stovetop.
The ThermoPro TP610 features a waterproof rating of IPX5. Here’s a link to the IP rating system.
An IP rating of X5 correlates to waterproof protection against water jets, meaning you can wash it under a faucet to clean it.
One feature that gives me pause is the bottle opener at the end of the device. Although a cool feature, I can definitely see someone using too much torque to open their beer.
When I get my hands on my thermometer I will definitely try out this feature and report my findings.
I will test the accuracy of both of the TP610’s probes when it arrives.
The price tag of the TP610 is currently $22. Considering that you get an instant-read thermometer and an oven/grill thermometer for that price, it’s not a bad value.
A singular device that’s able to do the work of two is always an intriguing proposition. Does the ThermoPro TP610 Dual Probe Meat Thermometer achieve this?
Having an instant-read thermometer that can double as an oven or grill thermometer is a nice concept.
I will put mine to the test when it arrives and report my findings.
