The ThermoPro TP910 Bluetooth Meat Thermometer is a dual-probe meat thermometer with a reported wireless Bluetooth signal range of up to 650 feet.
At first glance, the TP910 looks like the two-probe version of the four-probe ThermoPro TP25 Bluetooth Meat Thermometer.
That’s a good thing because the ThermoPro TP25 is one of the best Bluetooth meat thermometers on the market.
And to complicate matters, ThermoPro already has a two-probe Bluetooth meat thermometer in their lineup, the ThermoPro TP920 (formerly the ThermoPro TP-25H2).
It appears to be the same thermometer in every way except for the orange body.
There’s no need to worry because all three models are solid thermometers.
In this review of the ThermoPro TP910 Bluetooth Meat Thermometer, I’ll explore the similarities and differences between the similar ThermoPro models.
And as usual, I will examine the TP910’s features, usability, accuracy, durability, and price to determine if it’s worth a purchase or not.
ThermoPro TP910 Bluetooth Meat Thermometer
ThermoPro is one of the premier manufacturers of affordable thermometers in the marketplace today.
With a long list of meat thermometers with high ratings, ThermoPro not only makes quality thermometers they stand behind their products.
The ThermoPro TP910 is their fourth Bluetooth meat thermometer model.
Having reviewed the other three models already, the TP910 already has a good reputation attached to it right out of the box.
As stated earlier, the dual-probe TP910 looks incredibly similar to the highly-rated four-probe ThermoPro TP25.
The one question I have is what is the true Bluetooth range of the TP910?
Is it the 650 feet stated on the box or is it the 500 feet stated in ThermoPro’s marketing images? (see above)
And does it really matter? I don’t think it matters much, both distances indicate a strong wireless signal capable of penetrating multiple walls and other obstructions.
Other than a strong Bluetooth range, what else does the ThermoPro TP910 feature?
I’m glad you asked. You probably didn’t, but here they are anyway.
Features and Components of the ThermoPro TP910
Here is everything that comes in the box of the ThermoPro TP910:
- One Transmitter
- Two Stainless Steel Probes with Probe Winders
- One USB Charging Cable
- One Grill Grate Clip
- One Instruction Manual
And here are the important specifications of the TP910:
- Probe Temperature Measuring Range- 15.8°F to 572°F ( -10°C to 300°C)
- Probe Accuracy- +-1.8°F (+-1.0°C)
- Probe Length- 8 inches, 6 inches not including the handle.
- USB Rechargeable 18650 battery
A splashproof rating equates to an IPX4 rating. ThermoPro states that it can withstand some rain outside. Having used its doppelganger, the TP25, in the rain, I would say this has some merit.
- Two-channel display
The display screen shows the two current temperatures and that is it. There is no way to see your alarm set temperatures on the display screen.
- Bluetooth Signal Range of over 500 feet
That is the distance used in ThermoPro’s marketing so far, although it states 650 feet on the box that I received.
- Backlight Button
The backlight will stay on for only 10 seconds when the light button on the front is pressed.
- Power/Bluetooth/°C/°F Button
- Alarm Button
Is the ThermoPro TP910 easy to operate? Yep.
The unit itself has just three buttons. A backlight button on the front with a Bluetooth/Celsius/Fahrenheit button and an alarm button on the back.
The TP910 pairs with the ThermoPro BBQ app, available for both Apple and Android devices. To download the app to your mobile device you can either scan the QR code in the instruction manual or go directly to the Apple App Store or Google Play store.
Once download the app will automatically search for your mobile device and pair it with it.
The ThermoPro app is the same app used by its other Bluetooth meat thermometer models.
The main display screen is split into two identical sections, one for each probe channel.
Each channel displays the: current temperature, your set target temperature, type of meat or ambient temperature, buttons that will take you to a temperature graph, and a timer button.
The app also gives you the ability to set high and low-temperature alerts for those of you who smoke meat and need to know when your pit temp dips below a certain temperature.
Other features that you can control include a disconnection notice, alarm on/off, a temp pre-alarm, and alarm vibration.
To test the accuracy of the ThermoPro TP910, I placed one of its probes in a pot of water heating on the stove alongside the probe of one of the most accurate meat thermometers on the market.
The TP910 performed very well, keeping up with the other thermometer, albeit not as responsive.
That is to be expected considering the other thermometer utilizes highly-accurate, Type-K thermocouple probes and has a price tag over 7 times the price of the ThermoPro TP910.
The TP910 also passed the ice water test, registering 32°F in a bowl of ice water.
I would consider the TP910 to be accurate.
You want a thermometer that you don’t have to worry about when you’re using it outside by your grill or smoker.
A thermometer that claims to have any sort of waterproofing is one indicator of its durability.
The ThermoPro TP910 claims it is splashproof. This equates to an IP rating of 4 in terms of moisture protection.
I have yet to use the TP910 in the rain, but I have used its body double, the ThermoPro TP25, in the rain with no problems thus far.
The TP25 is also splashproof, according to ThermoPro.
This ThermoPro thermometer comes with the same one-year warranty that all of its thermometers feature. And if you register your thermometer with them online that warranty is extended to three years.
Their customer service is among the best in the business and they stand behind their products.
It is too early to state any sort of durability claim with this thermometer. Durability is a trait revealed over time and with repeated use.
I can say that I have used the similar TP25 model for over two years with no problems whatsoever.
I expect the same performance from the TP910.
The current price tag of the ThermoPro TP910 is $39.99, as does the ThermoPro TP920.
To put that into comparison, the four-probe TP25 costs $59.98.
At its current price tag and considering all of its features, I consider the TP910 to be a good value.
ThermoPro TP910 vs ThermoPro TP25
Further inspection confirms that the TP910 utilizes the same body as the TP25. There are a few notable differences, however.
The most obvious difference is the TP910 only has two probes compared to the four-probe TP25.
Another design difference is that the TP910 has an alarm button on the back that you can press to turn the alarm function on or off.
The TP25 has no dedicated alarm function button, although you can silence the alarm at any time by pressing the backlight button in the front.
One other notable difference is the probes of the TP910 aren’t separate colors to differentiate them from each other.
The color-coordinated probes and probe ports are one of the things I love about the four-probe TP25.
This color coordination extends to the mobile app, with dedicated probe channels for the silver, blue, black, and gold probes.
It is nice to keep track of separate food items on the grill or smoker and this color system is incredibly helpful.
The blue probe is in your chicken while the gold probe is in your steak, and it says so on the mobile app. You get the idea.
Even with just two probes to keep track of, I think this color system would be useful for a thermometer like the TP910.
The TP25 also has a reported Bluetooth range of 500 feet compared to the TP910’s 650-foot range.
Is the Bluetooth signal of the TP910 indeed stronger than that of the TP25? Further testing is needed.
And a good thing to remember when it comes to Bluetooth range, it takes two to tango. The range of a Bluetooth thermometer is only as good as your mobile device’s ability to receive a Bluetooth signal.
ThermoPro TP910 vs ThermoPro TP920
What’s are the differences between the ThermoPro TP910 and the ThermoPro TP920?
Well, one is white and one is orange.
I’m kidding, sort of.
Both are dual-probe Bluetooth meat thermometers with the same display screen, same buttons, same temperature probes, with the same mobile app.
And they are the same price. (At the time of this review, March 2022.)
ThermoPro claims the TP910 is splashproof while there is no such claim for the TP920. There is also the Bluetooth range. The TP920 has a reported range of 500 feet while the TP910 claims to have a Bluetooth range of 650 feet.
It’s as if there are two designers at ThermoPro with differing opinions and they decided to release both thermometers.
My opinion? They’re both solid thermometers, do you prefer white or do you prefer orange? (I guess I wasn’t kidding after all ; )
The ThermoPro TP910 Bluetooth Meat Thermometer is pretty much the two-probe version of the four-probe ThermoPro TP25.
The Bluetooth range on the TP910 might be a little stronger than the already strong 500-foot Bluetooth signal of the TP25.
Further testing will reveal if this is indeed the case, although it shouldn’t matter much as initial testing of the TP910’s Bluetooth range shows it’s capable of going through multiple obstacles.
With decent waterproofing and a nice mobile app, the ThermoPro TP910 is a good value at its current price.
Are there things I wish it had? Of course. It would be nice if the temperature probes and ports were two separate colors to keep track of them on the grill.
I also wish the backlight would stay on for longer than 10 seconds. I think this is easily achievable considering that the thermometer is USB-chargeable.
And the last wish is for the mobile app to have graphing capabilities to include all of the probes on one graph, not separate graphs for each probe.
Even without these upgrades, I still think you won’t find a comparable Bluetooth meat thermometer with its quality and features at its current price.
