    I needed this device to cook a standing rib roast in my oven. Previously, I used a 20 year old counter top rotisserie oven. The old oven died and I wouldn’t have worked with the old over because of the rotisserie movement. So, I decided to do a convention oven cooking session for the roast but I didn’t want to be taking out the roast several times during the cooking process and poking it with an old analog meat thermometer to check the temperature. Just follow the instructions in the box (and they are good) and insert one of the two probes into the center of the meat and you’ll have a great meal. It was super easy and I was able to watch TV since the main unit receives the temp signal from the probe in the oven.

    These are very well made thermometer units. I had another before this but it was made of a cheaper plastic and just crapped out after a while. This one is covered in a rubbery material that make them less slippy-feeling. You can either hang the transmitter unit or use the fold out leg to set it on something. You can do the same with the receiver. It was easy to figure out how to set it up to follow the temps, and you can go with the pre-programmed temps or set it up to go off early if you want to bring the food in and rest it. We like to take our pork off early so it doesn’t dry out and taste like paper. The one I had before this was difficult to sync, and had to be re-synced before each use. This one is a lot easier, and I only had to do it once.But the best part of all – and something I thought I would NEVER use – is the ability to watch two different temps at the same time, on the same receiver. I didn’t think I’d ever use it, but I use it all the time. You would need to invest in two separate units to do the things I’m about to tell you.1) You can just use one probe (which is how I thought I would use it exclusively).2) You can put one probe into the meat and use the other to monitor the ambient temp inside the grill/smoker/oven. They give you metal clips to keep the probe tip away from hot surfaces for that purpose.3). You can use it to monitor temps in two different parts of the meat (or other item you’re cooking). That works great for things like chicken or turkey that have dark and light meats that take different times to be cooked right.4). You can cook two different kinds of meat (or chili, or casseroles, etc.) at the same time, even on two separate cooking fires.The final plus I can think of is that both the transmitter and the receiver operate on batteries, so you can even take them camping. The ONLY thing I think is missing is a storage/carrying case of some kind. I just “borrowed” one of my wife’s clear plastic refrigerator containers and – problem solved. Everyone who is a semi-serious cook/griller/camp cook needs to get one of these!Jan 8, 2017 UPDATEI just found out that there IS a case for this item. Actually, there are several. One is from a . I got an email from Amazon with a link to one from a company called Caseling. I ordered one (from a company called LTGEM) that’s a few bucks cheaper, and that has space below the receiver for an extra set of batteries – again, great for people who use this for camping. Paying $15-$20 for a case seems pricey, considering that a couple of bucks worth of Tupperware will do the same thing (and you probably already have it in your cabinets somewhere). But I got one anyway because my wife says I have money to burn 😉

    The probe plugs took a LOT of force to fully insert into the transmitter the first time, I’m not used to 2.5mm phone plugs taking that much force, but once I got them to snap in, the HHH’s went away, and realistic readings came out. Haven’t grilled with it yet, but fired up the BBQ with the probes suspended and got realistic temp readings.lots of features, going to take awhile to figure them all out.

    User interface is a little awkward but it does its job.

  5. Adam

    I waited a couple of months before writing this review to make sure I’d thoroughly tested it. It works perfectly, and the two probes really help as you can use one to measure ambient temperate, and the other as the meat thermometer. There are a few minor improvements that could be made to future versions, but it’s still 5 stars as this delivers exactly what it promises to deliver.The minor improvements would be:A better ambient probe holder. It comes with a small metal clip, but positioning it when you have a grate is awkward. A simple double ended crocodile clip would be better – one end to clip onto the grate and the other to grip the probe. As it is it works, but it’s finicky and you can easily end up with the probe touching the grate and giving you an incorrect ambient temperature reading.The second improvement would be the ability to set a tolerance window for the temperature. Right now the alarm goes off if you hit a designated temperature, but not if you drop too far down. It also goes off at exactly the temperature, as opposed to a window of tolerance where it doesn’t ping you constantly for minor temperature fluctuations.Overall though, this is the one you want. Excellent product.

    It was a typical Thanksgiving for us and a dozen close friends. I was in charge of the bird.After three days of dry brining the expensive, organic, heritage-breed turkey, we were all ready to give it a nice long roast on my buddy’s grill outside in buffeting sleep while we stayed indoors and drank wine, all with this thermometer to be our guide to the bird’s state of doneness. One probe in the breast, one probe in the breast. How perfect could this be? Turns out, the farthest thing from perfect you can imagine.After our first glass of dry riesling, about twenty minutes later, I happened to glance at the thermometer readout. Odd. The leg probe temperature was steadily climbing — one degree every ten seconds or so. Far too fast to be accurate. Then, all of a sudden, the display began flashing “EEEE”. Disgusted and cursing my own foolishness for trusting Amazon for such an important part of my Thanksgiving job, I angrily strode out to the porch, slamming the slider door behind me.Seconds later, neighbors two doors down heard my shrieks of horror and pleas for help.What awaited me on the porch, out of view of the gathering of friends and libations inside the house, was a little slice of Vietnam. But it wasn’t the smell of napalm filling the air this miserable late-morning, and I certainly didn’t love it.My friends rushed out and helped pull a very charred bird from the inferno, one bringing welding gloves, the other a five-pound bag of baking soda (also purchased here on Amazon!). Fire finally extinguished and bird carted off the triage into the kitchen, we assessed the situation.Friends, *please* remember to clean your gas grill’s grease trap regularly. Especially if you have ever parked it under a Douglass Fir. Years of grease and pine needles turned the grill into an incendiary device. The victim: a dry brined $120 turkey.THE GOOD NEWS IS that this thermometer alerted me to the fact something was awry before the bird was completely ruined. The skin was inedible, yes, but a transfer into the oven made for a very delicious centerpiece of a meal. And one helluva good story. Sadly, the thermometer probes were lost in the disaster. But! Replacements are available here on Amazon, and a couple days later I was back in business.Five Stars. Took a beating and still works well.

    Just did my first smoke this weekend and the TP-20 was invaluable. Considering I’m a complete newbie to smoking, I was a bit intimidated with the entire process. I recently purchased a Weber Smokey Mountain 22 and decided that pulled pork would be what I tried to do first.It was great to utilize the TP-20 in two ways. First, one probe went into the pork shoulder and one on the grate beside it. That way, I could constantly tell what the meat temperature had risen to and I could also keep track of how much heat the coals were producing. I wanted to keep the smoker temp between 225 and 250 and I needed to know when the meat hit 160(the stall) and finally 203…when it would be finished.I knew from my research that there was usually a “stall” in the heat of the pork shoulder at 160 degrees and that you can wrap the shoulder in either butcher’s paper or aluminum foil to help it continue to rise in temperature. I was able to set an alarm on the TP-20 at 160 degrees to let me know when it was time to wrap my pork shoulder, and then after that I reset the alarm for 203 degrees to know when to pull it off the smoker. Also, since this was my first smoke, it was great to know the heat temp of the smoker and when to add additional charcoal! My charcoal gave out at about 10:30pm, so I had to add more to bring the temperature back up.Did I mention that I was tracking all of this from my couch, as I was watching a movie! My smoker was in my backyard and I was in my house the majority of the time. Once it hit 160, at 11:30pm, I wrapped the shoulder in foil and put it back on the smoker…this is when I set the alarm up to 203 degrees….and then I went to bed.I didn’t realize that the new batch of coals were really cranking up the heat, so at about 1:30am, the alarm went off for 203 degrees and my shoulder was done!I can’t imagine how much checking I would have been doing with a normal, hand held meat thermometer. Luckily, my receiver was right beside my bed and it woke me up at the exact time and temperature that the shoulder needed to come off.All in all, i’m very pleased with this purchase and as soon as I registered it, they extended the warranty to three years. Hopefully I won’t have any problems with it, but if I do, it’s good to know they’re prepared to step up.

    I purchased this thermometer because of the features and solid customer service reviews. Let me start by sating that the thermometer is solid. The unit is easy to set up and has really great range. After purchase, I registered the product to get the unbeatable warranty support. I purchased the TP-20 in January of 2020. I use it almost every weekend and some during the week. Unfortunately, the temperature readings started getting way off a few of weeks ago (July 2022). I contacted customer support and they immediately sent out replacement probes. Upon receipt, I tested the thermometer again, but the new probes did not fix the problem. I again sent a message to customer support, and in less than 24 hours, I had a new TP-20 on the way. Long story short, it is awesome to see a company that stands behind the products that they sell. I would definitely recommend ThermoPro products to family, friends, and anyone who is looking for a professional grade cooking thermometer with solid service after the sale.

    I’ve gone through a few cheaper thermometers from Home Depot in the past and this set has held up the best. Great range too; I can keep an eye on my pastrami while I play video games. I bought the case for this set, which is a must.

  10. MICKEY W.

    Easy to use and accurate. Use this for smoking on BGE. Would purchase again. Batteries have now lasted for 5 smokes (roughly 35 hrs)

  11. Jason

    I did a lot of research before going with this thermometer. Many sites recommended this one in particular so I decided not to go cheap and get one of the $20 ones available.I gave one probe a quick test in some hot oil and it matched my candy thermometer I normally use so it seemed pretty accurate and I assumed the other was accurate as well. I used this on July 4th for smoking a brisket. Used one probe for smoker temp and the other probe in the brisket. Being able to know the internal temp from anywhere in the house was a luxury I didn’t know I was missing out on. This alone makes it a great buy. I also learned that my smoker temp gauge was off by about 25 degrees so when I thought I was smoking at 250 in the past I was really at 275.Knowing the internal temp of the meat without having to open up the smoker and take periodic readings was great also. I don’t know how I have been running my smoker without this for so long. I was able to determine when the stall was happening so I could use the Texas crutch to get my brisket temperature up. 13 hours later I had the smoked my best brisket yet.The thermometer was really easy to set up. The range was great. I was able to be in the front yard with my daughter and still keep an eye on the smoker temp in the back yard. The alarm feature is awesome too. I was able to get a little more sleep after getting the smoker set up early in the morning. No need to constantly go to the back door and check it.Since I have only had the product for a week so far I can’t speak to the durability of the product but it does have a warranty and since so many bbq sites recommended this one I am not too worried.

    We grill a lot of fish in the summer, and lamb and beef during the winter. When grilling an expensive cut of meat, a Prime tenderloin for example, preserving the meat quality is imperative. A remote reading thermometer makes possible temperature monitoring while continuing to entertain guests. Here in Alaska, it’s also often more comfortable to be inside rather than outside.All of these devices measure the temperature at the tip of metal probes, and transmit that temperature information to a receiver via a radio-frequency link. This allows the user to remotely monitor the temperature at the probe tip.I researched these radio-frequency-based remote reading thermometers to replace a long-time device and chose the ThermoPro TP-20. After thoroughly reading directions, I inserted the enclosed batteries (very convenient), inserted the two temperature probes, and the sender and receiver established a radio-frequency link, with no need for my assistance. The two probes showed the same temperature probes provided the same temperature value, a quick check that the device was calibrated.I’ve not owned a dual probe remote thermometer before, but I used them both as I monitored the two ends of a 6-pound tenderloin. My family has rare-meat lovers and well-done lovers, and being able to monitor the thin and thick ends of the tenderloin allowed me to adjust the various heat sources on a gas grill. I usually use a charcoal grill and don’t have the ability to control the heating to this degree, but it’s still a useful piece of information. Of course I log the data, so the temperature differential will also be interesting to log. When planning a meal, it’s useful to know that a 6-pound tenderloin, cooked on gas, with the meat at this temperature and outside temperature at that value, will require 1:30 to cook.The manufacturer claims that the sender and receiver will communicate over a 300-ft maximum distance, a distance that I did not measure, but it certainly worked well through a 120-foot distance and through heavy plaster walls. I am very impressed with that performance.The receiver, the controller of the system, has pre-sets for FDA-approved cooking temperatures for a wide range of likely-to-be-grilled foods. Although I didn’t use the feature, the device also allows one to set other temperatures, instead. One can change from Fahrenheit to Celsius degrees, as well as access a timer and other features. Read the directions!Directions are easy to follow. The device was well-packaged, and included everything as advertised. It’s easy to use and provides accurate temperature information.My first use was for an almost-two-hour grilling of a tenderloin cooked over gas. I enthusiastically recommend this device.

    Received when expected in excellent condition. I have used a digital, continuous reading meat thermometer for many years and have found that availability of “replacement” probes is very importance since they can be shorted out by moisture, bending, and perhaps even the high temperatures they endure. Accuracy of the probe is very important (+/- 1-2 degrees is excellent for a home probe) in use, easily compromised, and should be checked before every use (e.g., how important is the doneness of that prime rib) using a simple ice/water bath. Haven’t checked the durability in a grill which is very hard on probes. The remote controller was easy to synchronize. The ability to use 2 probes on separate channels simultaneously may be a nice option which at least gives you a 2nd backup probe to use as a replacement when needed. Would buy again!

    I recently bought an Akorn Kamado Kooker, and was advised I could only master it with a reliable remote thermometer. My nephew Chad, also a competition BBQ guy, said the TP-20 was the bomb, so I got one as soon after assembling the Akorn as possible. Now I’ll be the first one to say that labeling the Akorn Kamado as the gold standard is conditional on one’s ability to achieve temperature equilibrium. I’ve known others who bought and sold their Akorn Kamado in short order when they were not able to achieve said equilibrium. I had a good advisor and I’m Irish, so I conquered it the second time around. But this review ain’t about Akorns, it’s about the TP-20, but the background is cogent.Successful operation of the Akorn might be possible without the TP-20, but I’d never try it. Now I’ve got enough experience smoking boston butts that I didn’t really need a remote probe in the meat, but having one measuring internal Akorn temp was the difference between success and failure. On the TP-20, you can click Mode until ‘Oven’ is an option. I picked that and hung the remote probe through the upper damper first time around and got skewed results, no doubt because the probe tip was touching the inside of the Kooker. I-Tronics includes a right angled stainless steel clip that I didn’t and couldn’t determine its function until I reread the User Manual and found an obscure reference to ‘clipping the probe to the cooking grate.’ The clip has holes in both sides that perfectly accommodates the probe above the grate. Second time around I was able to control the internal cooking temperature at +/- 15 degrees of 250 degrees for nine hours, opening the lid only once at the six hour mark to wrap the butts in foil. I probably made a half dozen upper damper adjustments over the nine hours to thwart temp rises or drops, but the accuracy of the TP-20 allowed me to do that on a timely basis-obviating panic attacks when you’re caught sliding sideways.I gave the TP-20 5 stars based on ease of use, decipherable operating instructions and pinpoint accuracy. The freaking butts became the tender smoked pulled pork I was accustomed to. The WiFi coverage of 400 feet allowed me free range around the house with the receiver unit. At $54 plus shipping it’s a bargain IF you want to upgrade your slow smoker to an Akorn Kamado. No slaps at Char-Griller, the Akorn manufacturer, but if you’re serious about your BBQ, you ain’t relying on the thermometer integral to the Kooker. I can guarantee you the TP-20 delivers, and they give a lifetime replacement warranty on the sensor tips, the most vulnerable aspect of the entire system!

    Works great for grilling thick steaks ( when your company is picky on doneness of meat).Works great on smoking a turkey or whole chicken. I can set it and come in side, when it reaches the inside meat temperature it will beep and let you know it is done to perfection.

  16. Jason

    I took this out of the box and used it the very day that I received it. It took a bit of muddling since I needed to fix dinner and did not have to read the manual, but if you punch the buttons in the right order you can get there after a little experimentation.The look and feel of the unit is very rugged, I really like it compared to other remote units in the past that have let us down more than once (they got put in the Goodwill box today).I used it to bake a couple of large potatoes on the pellet grill for dinner. The first thing I learned is that the temp swings in the pellet grill are insane, and its internal thermo regulation is way off. I put one probe in the grill area to monitor and the other in the biggest potato and set the temp alarm for 210F on the potato.After cooking longer than our usual guesswork based on time/temp, I relied on the sensor to tell me when the potatoes were “done”. They came out absolutely perfect! My Wife declared that these were the best baked potatoes that we have ever made in the 25+ years of making them together.I’ll update the review if something goes south, but I am not expecting that to happen.

  17. J Suzuki

    We live in California, so we BBQ several times a week, all year long. My old wireless thermometer finally stopped working, so I replaced it with this unit. This ThermoPro works great. It’s easy to use and easy to read. My BBQ is only 20-25 feet away from my kitchen, so I had no problems with the two units syncing and communicating with one another. It’s easy to clean, too, just soap and water. If you do any type of BBQ-ing, this thermometer is a must have!

  18. Dawn Capobianco

    This item works perfectly. My husband uses it for his smoker.

  19. Grandpa

    I bought the TP20 last year a little less than a year ago, I have found it to be a exceptional product using it quite a lot with my Kamado Joe smoker. I have used it for both long smokes 18+ hrs. (Brisket, Pork roast et.) and Grilling, Baking Pizza, Rotisserie meats etc. I have found both of the probes to be very accurate when compare to instant read meat thermometers they have always been within 0.5 degrees of the instant read which is because my instant read, reads to the nearest 0.1 degree and the TP20 rounds to the nearest 1 degree. The temperature set alarms work very well and are quite useful when doing long cooks I wear the remote station when working in the yard or on the kitchen counter when in the house. I can see the temperature at any time, if it goes above the set point it alarms which can be heard from some distance away from it which is convenient. About a month ago one of the probes started misreading occasionally so I wanted to buy another probe for it. I could not find a replacement probe for it on their website so I as Their support which probe I should get for it since I could not find one on their website, a few days later I got a reply from support that they could take care of that, I was a bit confused at this point because I did not ask for a warranty replacement. I have been quite satisfied with the product and have used it allot over the past year and was just going to buy another probe for it. A couple of days after that I received another email from support saying my package had been shipped. I received it last week and I emailed support again asking if I owed anything and I got a reply with a simple 1 word answer (NO). Well in my opinion from the quality of the Product and the Customer Support ThermoPro has earned a life long customer.

  20. Anonymous12

    Product works very well. I use it for smoking tri-tip, brisket etc. Unfortunately my receiver unit died out of the blue after a few uses. I reached out to customer service and they offered a replacement. Buy with confidence that the product works well! And in the rare case of unit failure, they’ll make it right!

  21. Shrimp

    Great tool for kitchen and tailgating

  22. Peter MacVean

    I purchased this in June 2021. It worked great or awhile then the grill temp probe quit working. That really wasn’t an issue or me. Then in mid-April 2022 the meat probe quit.I called the company. Spoke with a very nice lady, Amy. She looked it up for warrant info.I HAVE A BRAND NEW ONE ON THE WAY. There were no questions, just a request or shipping info.5 STARS OR CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

  23. Hannah Fryzel

    I purchased this for my father for Christmas because he likes to smoke meat. He did not want something that would have him download an app on his phone and wanted something simple. He has used it several times and has not complained once. He likes how easy and simple it is to use and has not complained about the accuracy

  24. Josh williams

    It works good

  25. Greg M. Zirk

    I was able to monitor the internal temperature of the meat without opening the smoker in order to assure I reached the targeted internal temperature.

  26. Amazoid

    Marvelous concept and the electronics work very well!I grill quite often and use a handheld meat thermometer to know when the food is ready. This product lets me do the same thing without having to keep leaving my guests and without constantly lifting the grill cover to check the meat. With the handheld probe, it’s easy to overcook but this product sends a temperature update every few seconds so I can easily anticipate when I need to get the tongs and serving platter. The settings on the receiver are intuitive and I find it easy to use. The quality of my grilling has reached a new height thanks to this device.I’ve now used the product over a dozen times this first month and I am mostly satisfied with it’s performance. The reason I did not rate it 5 stars is because the product is not very durable. Like other reviewers, I already had a problem with one of the temperature probes. One of them just failed. I followed all of the precautions carefully but the probe now always reports an overtemperature (鈥滺HH” on the transmitter) even when the probe is at room temperature in the kitchen. I’m certain that I never submerged the probe in water, never exposed it to flames nor to the cooking surface (not an easy feat since it is used inside a barbecue grill) and was I wery very careful with handling the cord and plug but the probe still failed very soon after purchase… too soon. Also, the transmitter itself is not weatherproof. I grill year-round and it’s already happened that it was raining while I was grilling. Since the transmitter shouldn’t get wet, I need to cover it with a glass bowl to keep it safe. No big deal but it’s a bit inconvenient. I can understand the receiver being vulnerable but since the transmitter has to be outside the grill, and grills are outdoor appliances, you’d kind of think the transmitter would be weatherproof. Don’t cover it with metal, by the way. I found that didn’t work since the metal blocked the RF signal to the receiver. I found that glass worked OK.I’ve now ordered a pair of “waterproof” replacement temperature probes to use with this product (Cheerson, model IPX-7). I’m hoping these hold up a little better. I’d still recommend this product but I find that the probes are a bit frail for everyday use.

  27. HEATHER HARLEY

    This product is amazing, my husband loves it!! The inside temperature of the meat is always perfectly cooked!!

  28. Billy

    The temp is on. The programming is is a little hard to use but for watching meat temp and fire temp it works good.

  29. Amazon Customer

    This ThermoPro TP20 Wireless Meat Thermometer IS THE BEST PRODUCT EVER. Where has this been all my life. Excellent customer service as well and certainly 10 out of 10 stars. We got so tired of running back and forth to my smoker and this is the easiest gauge ever ! I was in another room and made a meatloaf and low and behold – the temp his the desire degree and BEEP. We have so over and under cooked pork, seafood, beef and salmon and this product is spot on. Would highly recommend for anyone that does a lot of cooking. Would purchase again! Thank you for taking the guess work out.

  30. JH in Cedar Creek, TX

    This was a potentially great unit but the transmistter stopped working right after the warranty expired. I put it in a drawer and didn’t use it for several months then tried it again yesterday. After putting new batteries in both units, the transmitter unit reads the temperature correctly, compared with probes internal to the pellet grill but the receiving unit is still works intermittenly and not at all this morning, with the two units sitting next to each other.No problems with probes, but the transmitter seems to not be up to the job.

  31. S. Richer

    Great way to monitor the temperature of the grill and what you are grilling.

  32. R.Miles

    Love this probe. I know there are better ones available but this will do all you need

  33. Todd A. Rosenthal

    This is a great product. I left the batteries in the last ones I bought too long and they exploded. The device stopped working. Don’t be an idiot like me. Change every season. Thumbs up on performance.

  34. Kam

    Nothing special about it.

    I have been cooking for many years, but am new to smoking with a Weber Smokey Mountain. Its kinda scary to put $100 worth of meat inside, close the lid, wait 8 hours & HOPE that everything turns out just right. There are so many things that can go wrong. The ThermoPro essentially allows me to know what is going on inside my smoker, all while sitting on my couch. I used one probe in the thickest meat, and the other to monitor the air temp inside the smoker. This allowed me to adjust the vents to control the temps and to know when the food was perfectly done. Without this, I would have had to constantly monitor the Weber’s inaccurate thermometer, and open the smoker to probe the meats with a manual thermometer (the 2nd rack in the WSM is not easy to access with a manual meat thermometer). Weber was thoughtful enough to add a rubber grommet in the side of their WSM – perfect for the ThermoPro’s leads to go through. I consider this to be ESSENTIAL for people who BBQ or smoke meats, but this would be great for calibrating an oven, or to check steaks for doneness on the grill. I would imagine it would also be good to monitor the temps of cold smoked meats & cheeses to make sure the temps don’t get too high.———————–[UPDATED REVIEW]I have used the TP20 for about 5 smokes now. I even used it once in light rain (I did put a small zip bag over the transmitter, but the rain didn’t seem to affect it). I have also carefully washed the probes, being careful not to let water go down into the probe where the wire is crimped into the probe. I am careful not to bend the leads sharply (I store them in a small loop). I haven’t had any problems with the probes so far. I only had 1 instance where the units lost signal for a few seconds, but they re-connected automatically within seconds and it has never happened again. I have never had to synch up the 2 units – just install the batteries, plug the probes in & go. The unit is fairly easy to program, however, I find all the meat settings frivolous. The backlight is good, but there is no option to keep it on. After about 45 hours of use, the original batteries are still working, however, I do remove the batteries from the transmitter between cooks, since it has no manual “off” switch (I don’t trust the auto off). The temp readings seems very accurate (both read within 1 or 2 degrees of each other) and the temp read time is very quick (stabilizes in about 6 seconds). It will measure temps down to 32 degrees, but not any lower. The construction seems fairly good (it has a plastic/rubberized outer skin and is light/medium weight). Both units have clips for your belt or the lip of a grill/smoker, and the receiver unit has a nice kickstand feature that allows it to stand upright on a table. The probe clip that comes with the unit is not really a grate clip – it is a pot clip for monitoring liquids or oils in a pot, but can be manipulated to work on a thin wire grill grate (just not very well). The alarm is fairly loud, but not overbearing (it will wake you up if necessary). Overall, I like the unit very much. My biggest complaint is that there is no “low” temp alarm setting. It will tell me if my smoker gets above a certain temp, but there is no way to set an alarm if the smoker temps drop too low. Mavrick 732 and 733 have HI/LOW temp alarms, but their quality doesn’t seem as good as this one (or easy to program). Guess I will have to get a Thermoworks Smoke, but it doesn’t look like the probes on the Smoke will fit through the rubber grommet on my WSM – oh well, can’t have everything. If Thermopro ever makes a unit with HI/LOW alarms, I would be very interested, especially if it had inputs for 3 probes. Another suggestion would be to get rid of the different food settings as it only complicates things, also, most people buying this type of stuff know what temps they want for the food.

    Very easy to use

    Having 2 probes is helpful for smoking on a gas grill. One probe outside and one inside, set alarms. Sat inside and made adjustments as needed. Also good for reverse sear method of grilling steaks. Beeping for key presses is annoying, wish I could disable that- my dog hates it!

  38. Amazon Customer

    Used it for brisket and jerky. Easy to use and accurate.

  39. Edward Kyle

    Easy to understand directions. Very easy to use, especially when grilling or smoking meats.

  40. Phil C.

    Not sure why the bad reviewers had an issue. This baby has worked every time right out of the box! Easy to use and I’ve found the temp probes to be very accurate.

    Now even I look like a pro ! I am new to smoking and tried it out on some lamb from our farm — best I have ever had and thanks to the gauges it was cooked to perfection

    I have only used this once (Christmas day for a prime rib of beef) but so far, I love it. I have an automatic probe built into my oven, but it stopped working a week before Christmas. So this purchase was my solution to the emergency. I had no idea which remote wireless thermometer I should buy, but I chose this one based on the comments (and comments made to comments) and the questions asked/responses. It seemed like it would be a good choice, and I am glad I ordered it.I really like the simplicity of operation. It is easy to read and to scroll the options, easy to program in any temperature you choose. Lots of settings for meats and taste (rare to well done).It has 2 probes that can be used simultaneously (in the same or different roast or baking item), with long mesh covered wire cables. This is actually an vast improvement over my oven probe which has a single 12-inch cable that (of course) doesn’t work when when the meat is removed from the oven and the cable is disconnected from the outlet. You can remove the roast from the oven and leave the probe in the meat, and monitor the internal temperature while the meat rests. This was just an wonderful feature and probably my favorite thing about it. I set the temp to 118 degrees to roast, took it out when the audible tone signaled the internal temp was 118. Then I reset the temp for 130 while the roast rested on the counter and went about the rest of my preparations without having to check and watch as you would with a traditional meat thermometer. At 130, the tone beeped again and I proceeded with the next steps of the meat preparation.You can carry the receiver with you, and you can reprogram while the probes are in use if you choose. This is very easy to use. Yes, the cases on them are plastic, but they are easy enough to clean. I would like the look better if they stainless steel, but the bright cases are easy to see on the counter.I would definitely order this again, and I look forward to using it with my grill outdoors where I always seem to over or under cook meats. The company has sent at least 2 emails asking if I have problems or questions (which I don’t). I think this is a company that is proactive about customer satisfaction and if I did have problems, they would be responsive to solving them.No discount, I paid the Amazon Prime offered price.

    I’ve been through many brands of remote thermometers over the years. Brother in law liked this brand so tried it.Cables seem well designed, buttons are solid and clear. So far temps are accurate, and the range between devices okay, not great just good. But does allow me to not have to sit right next to the grill or oven to monitor temperature.I will say as others have, this is not an intuitive device. Read the manual carefully because it’s not clear.You have two probes one for meat, one for ambient temperature. I use these type of probes when making yogurt as well, so I need to be able to monitor a temperature range of milk before adding the bacteria starter. Only way to do that is using the BBQ setting and probe 2. Again, nothing is straight forward.So far so good though, but durability is the next test.

  44. John H. Hicks

    The cable length is long enough for convenient placement of monitor

  45. Jason

    A nice addition to grilling. Mine had the rubber sleeve installed upside down so the corresponing numbers of each probe were backwards. Once I figured it out, then I flipped it back and it was easy after that. Works well.

    The ThermoPro TP20 Wireless Meat is a game changer for smoking pork shoulder or beef brisket. Simple to use and can use up to 2 different meats. I liked this product so that you do not have to use a phone app.

  47. davec

    this wireless thermometer is great I love the dual probes very easy to use.

  48. Kevin P

    So I love the unit however the base station has already had 2 buttons fall off after only about 15 uses. It still even has the plastic covering the screen, that is how few times I used it. I am very impressed with the range of the transmitter and the battery life. it is pretty easy to read and after a little bit of reading you can easily figure out all the settings. I bought this in 2020 and have had it for 2 years so obviously out of warranty. The unit still works but you just have to remember what the buttons did, in my case I got lucky and the first button to break off was the power button, Second button was the up arrow button. So the build quality of the keypad is a little cheap but the unit itself is pretty good.

  49. Bruce Batman

    Super easy tu use. I love the wireless connection to the main unit. Super handy on super hot desert days. Works like a charm. Now I want to upgrade to a unit with more probes…

  50. Timothy E. Washburn

    Therm Pro Model TP-20I really like the distance increase to 100 yards which allows me to work outside in our yard or inside my home without worrying that the receiver will be out of range. This lets me make every minute count and no longer worrying about if I am in range; and if I do go out of range, it warns me.The new design of the probes allow more control of where you want to insert them on the meat, particularly in the point and the flat of a brisket.The protective case does just that and it easier to hold without too much concern of it slipping out of your hands when you have greasy fingers. It has a nice feel to it and is not too small.Another nice feature is that the transmitter also displays the temperature of both probes so that you can leave the receiver at your work station if you are doing something else. This is a nice little luxury.Two things come to mind that I would have known before purchasing this particular model: 1) That there was a newer model available, and 2) That on the settings they would add a brisket/pork butt setting.When I ordered this item there was no indication that a newer model existed. It would have been nice to know.Of course you just edit the temperature setting for your brisket, but it is a little ironic that this is marketed for barbecuing. If you ever consider adding that to the settings, another great optional feature would be to include a wrap indicator window for those who prefer wrapping their brisket, ribs, or butts. I gave the product 5 stars because it is outstanding, not perfect.With all that being shared, I am anxiously looking forward to my first brisket using this system. This is definitely worth purchasing, but I would also check out the newer model; maybe it has some of the bells and whistles I was wanting.

  51. The G Spot

    My first impression of this product was very positive. It is very easy to use (I didn’t even need to consult the manual), includes two probes with long leads, has great wireless range, is fairly accurate (verified with Thermapen), looks durable, includes a belt clip for the remote receiver, and is a pretty good value. 5 stars, right?Well, no. I’m returning it for what it *doesn’t* do. My first annoyance was that there’s no obvious way on the receiver to distinguish one probe from the other; they are just labeled 1 and 2, while the probes themselves are not numbered. Turns out that the Right probe is #1 and the Left probe is #2, which is counter-intuitive for left-to-right readers. They should be color-coded, but of course the receiver LCD won’t show colors.My second annoyance was that there are only two probes. Two sounded great when I ordered it, but I quickly realized that I wanted more. You want one for the grill / oven itself, plus at least one for each piece of meat, and ideally more than one per piece of meat.My third annoyance is that the temperature readings on the probes are fairly slow. The probes don’t lend themselves to instant reads like the ThermaPen, which prevents them from being used easily for dynamic readings, pushing the probes into different parts of the meat.My fourth annoyance was what to do with this gear and especially the probes with long leads when not in use. It’s an unruly mess that I couldn’t find an easy place for in the kitchen. ThermoPro gave zero thought to how to reel in and stow the probe leads, and the large receiver adds more bulk.My fifth annoyance is that the units don’t power off automatically when not in use. That’s a potential battery burner.My sixth annoyance (belatedly) was needing to have a physical receiver at all. My wife took a look at the receiver and wondered why the receiver isn’t just a smartphone app with Bluetooth or WiFi. Turns out she’s right: there are several Bluetooth meat thermometers on Amazon.I ended up buying the Tenergy Solis Digital Meat Thermometer, which has these advantages:1. No physical receiver. Uses IOS or Android app on your smartphone / tablet. Saves a lot of storage bulk.2. Includes six probes – and they are color-coded! The app also has colors for each probe, but the sockets on the monitor are only numbered, so you have to assign a number for each color. (Probes should have been colored *and* numbered to solve this.)3. Probes have an integrated reel to wind up the 4ft leads. The reel is extremely well designed and solves a big problem.4. Bluetooth range is excellent. I was dubious that Bluetooth could handle running about 60 feet from kitchen to living room, beyond line of sight, but it did fine and notably better than the Anova 800W immersion circulator’s Bluetooth, which can handle only half that distance.5. App has loads of features that just aren’t possible in a static LCD monitor like ThermoPro. But the out-of-range alarm is annoyingly loud (connection notification can be turned off).The Tenergy Solis probes are also slow to register temperature changes (takes about 10 seconds), so if you want nearly instant readings you’ll still need a ThermaPen or one of its more affordable competitors.

  52. FREDDY

    Bought this since the app for my built in Bluetooth has very short distance connectivity. It worked great. I did a 18 hour Boston Butt that came out delicious.

  53. DAMills

    The story of “how” is too long and irrelevant. That said, the probe, transmitter, and receiver were left in the oven with a roast and the oven was off. My partner didn’t know that and preheated the oven to 350 deg to bake something. When the preheat timer on the oven went off, the oven door was opened and the ThermoPro TP20 was discovered. Melted buttons. I was pretty upset, but lo and behold… the receiver and transmitter still work! I thought this was toast and was going to demand a replacement from my partner. No need. Now we have a ThermoPro with Salvador Dali style buttons! Go me!As far as functions, reliability and accuracy: I have two different brands of instant read probes including this ThermoPro (thermocouple), two different brands of analog style (bimetallic), and an infra red thermometer. I’m a scientist by trade with expertise in chemistry and medical laboratories. Assessing the accuracy and precision of any measuring device is not straightforward. One must use a known standard before assessing the accuracy, and not many casual users have access to certified temperature measuring devices. Most of the reviews that complain about accuracy that I’ve read here involve either a dud from the factory or an uninformed method of assessing performance.As far as food is concerned, accuracy is less important than precision. The ThermoPro T20 is very precise and reasonably accurate. As long as you can get the same value time after time (within a reasonable margin of accuracy), the thermometer is reliable for cooking.I’ve owned this for two years. With all of that in mind, outside of a dud from the factory (bad probe), I have found the ThermoPro T20 to be exceptionally precise, reasonably accurate (within 10 degrees of a second thermocouple and a bimetallic thermometer), and durable as hell. Now if they only made one for a freezer…

  54. Samantha

    I simply LOVE this thing, don’t know how I survived this long without it!!!!It arrived in a very timely manner considering it was actually out of stock when I placed my order, was nicely packaged and undamaged.Now for my new love affair, lol….It is simple to use, the instructions are printed a tad small but readable and informative.The first time I plugged in both probes I got the “HHH” error for one probe, but after I looked at everything I found I had not fully plugged in the second probe, so I made sure it was properly inserted in the sending unit, then I had to restart both the sending unit and the receiver and the error went away, I included this as it is important information.When your temp is reached or the timer ends the screen on the receiver lights up and it starts beeping, it isn’t the loudest thing, but even from my kitchen to the living room you can hear it.I bought this for Turkey day this year, and after reading the reviews I chose this one, (best thing I have ever done).I started using it to monitor my fridge temp so I was sure to have it set low enough, (wanted to ensure temp was below 40 degrees), then when it came time to brine the big bird I placed 1 probe in the brine solution, and the other one outside the box to monitor both the brine temp, and room temp.I wanted to hold the brine temp at 37 degrees, and this thing worked flawlessly, when I needed to add more ice it would start beeping so I knew I had to get busy, plus I set the timer so I would know when to take the bird out of the solution and clean it and back to the fridge, again flawless.So far I have been using it almost nonstop for 2 days, and it is the best thing ever, it has relieved allot of stress with my turkey, I would Defiantly recommend this to anyone serious about cooking, so much so I am planning to buy a second unit plus extra probes so I can monitor more than one thing at a time.IF you want to reduce the fret of cooking/baking/roasting/grilling then this Unit is a MUST HAVE!!!Update:I just found out the timer function also works great for an alarm clock, (would be really handy in case of power outage), I used it for an alarm clock when I only had time for a short nap, instead of having to reset my main alarm clock, again, Flawless.I have also used it to monitor room temps, bath water, and outside temps, this thing is truely multifunction and has yet to let me down.Update 12/15/16:Well sorry to add I just found a flaw with this unit, sighs.I had the receiver sitting on a small table about 1.5 ft tall and knocked it off onto the carpet and now the display is all messed up, the top few lines are only half displaying, so it is not very durable if that short fall onto carpet will damage the display, I still love it and won’t change my Stars, just wanted to let everyone know, it is more fragile than I had expected. Now I guess I will have to buy another one, 🙁

  55. clint marshall

    I see lots of reviews that say they wish you could set an alarm for if the temperature drops below a certain value. You can actually do this with only probe 2. Set the meat to BBQ and then hitting the taste button will let you set a Lo and High temperature. This was a game changer for this device and should definitely be explained better in the manual

  56. KDI

    I purchased the ThermoPro TP20 primarily to use when smoking meat/poultry in my masterbuilt gas smoker.I used to use a combination of an iGrill bluetooth thermometer that would send the smoker box temperature reading to my smart phone along with a standard corded digital thermometer to check the meat temperature. Using the iGrill was okay, but I would always get bluetooth dropouts and have to reconnect and stuff. Plus I had to physically go out to my smoker to check the meat temperature. I could have purchased another iGrill probe and kept with the smartphone connection, but I was sick of disconnects – oh, and all the while my smartphone battery is draining and I can’t really roam too far away. So I decided to look for an alternative and found the ThermoPro TP20.I used the ThermoPro for the first time to smoke a whole turkey for Thanksgiving 2018. The ThermoPro worked flawlessly. Both the probes report the temperatures from the base station to the remote station. Also both of the temperature probes are a good size, really substantial compared to other probes I have used. I was able to program max temp thresholds and received alerts when for instance the smoker box temperature raised too high. I could leave the remote station in the kitchen and not worry about having my smartphone tied up with this nonsense. There were no disconnects between the probes and the base or remote stations at all. I did not test how far I could wander with the remote station though – all I know is that it performed much better than the iGrill bluetooth connection within the same vicinity. And that vicinity was really as far as I needed it to go – I can keep it in the kitchen, it works, no disconnects, I’m good.I was highly impressed by this device and glad I didn’t need to tie up my smartphone anymore – and now I could use my smartphone’s bluetooth connection to connect to a portable speaker for some music rather than temperature readings.I recommend this to anyone who is interested in monitoring the temperature of 2 items at one time (i.e.: maybe two meats, or maybe just one meat and your grill/smoker box temperature). I like the rubberized skin that the devices are covered with – they are bright orange so I can find the remote station quickly and will protect the devices from minor drops. This is easily a 5 star product. It was easy to set up and use and provides nice convenience so you don’t have to hover around your grill/smoker all day.

  57. Noble Coyle

    This was a wise purchase. Just what’s needed to take the guess work out. I think in time it will make me a better bar-b-que and smoker chef.

    This ThermoPro TP20 Wireless Remote Digital Thermometer works really great. I recently got a large smoker and can cook several things at once. This thermometer has dual probes which is handy. I can either monitor the internal temperatures of two meats (such as a turkey and a ham), I am smoking or put one in a meat and one just inside the smoker to monitor the internal temperature. I like that you can set each probe to a specific meat and it has preset temperatures used by the USDA. For meats such as Beef you can choose settings such as rare, medium, well done, etc. You can also program your own temperature settings as well. There is even a setting for oven to monitor your grill, oven or smoker. There is also a beeping alarm that sounds when your meat has reached its internal temperature that indicates it is done. The oven setting can be set to go off when your internal temperature gets too high or too low. The probes seem to have a have braid cord and sturdy probe tips. The gloves are great too, I have used them in my smoker to move food that is done or adjust metal items inside the hot smoker and never even felt warm. The best part is the wireless receiver that allows you to monitor all of your stuff from up to 350′ away. The receiver has a belt clip so it can hang on you or can pop it out as a kickstand to sit on a table. Really handy when you want to monitor you grill or smoker but you want to sit on the couch and watch the game. It also has a timer that is handy to use to set to remind you to check your food, or add more wood, add more water, or to turn food, The receiver also has a backlight to use in the dark to see the temps.The thermometer was ready to use right out of the box and simple to figure out. The only thing that wasn’t clearly marked is on the main unit which port is for probe 1 and which is for probe 2, but that just took a quick test. On my first trial run using this thermometer I smoked a turkey, a ham, a pork loin, and a whole chicken. It was handy to help me monitor the varying types of food I was cooking. The readings were fast and seemed accurate. You just have to ensure that you get the probe into the center of the meat so that you make sure it is completely done.The second time I went to use it one of my probes would not work correctly. I messed with it trying various things but it would only register “HHH” on the screen. I emailed the company (at noon on Thanksgiving day) and they replied (four hours later on Thanksgiving!) and sent me a replacement probe immediately (which I received the following Monday). So great customer service there.Attached are the only couple of photos I have. In the first you can see the probes inserted in the turkey and one in the chicken. In the second picture (not the greatest) you can see the main unit sitting on the ledge and the wires running inside. Just below that you can see the orange gloves I was using. Can’t wait to use it all again. My brother-in-law who got me into smoking was envious of the thermometer. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good versatile thermometer with nice features.

    This is the second TP-20 wireless remote digital meat thermometer system that I have bought. I liked the first one, same model, that I bought about nine months ago that I wanted another for not only a backup, but also for some future larger grilling projects. I also have two of their handy instant read TP-19 digital thermometers which are also outstanding. My first TP-20 has worked flawlessly since new and continues to do so, with perfect accuracy and reliability. The second which recently arrived seemed to have a problem with the #2 port during the “ice bath calibration test.” I tried several different probes and was not successful in resolving the problem so I figured there might be some way for me to recalibrate it to the 32 degree test point. I called ThermoPro Customer Service and spoke with Amy and told her the results of my calibration test. She had me retest switching a known accurate probe from port #1 to #2, which basically I had already done. When I told her the results she said that she would replace the unit and asked only for my mailing address, email, and the Amazon order number. And that was it – it really was that simple!! I asked if she was going to give me a RMA and mailing label for the return. The answer was, “No, we don’t need that, just keep it.” I can’t think of ever having received such friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient customer service. And I thought, and still believe Amazon has been terrific through the years in resolving returns; but ThermoPro might have just set the Gold Standard for that service. Having already proven the reliability of three of their products I am certain when I receive the replacement TP-20 it will be just as perfect. Am I a ThermoPro fan, you bet!!

  60. Leigh

    I’ve had this set for just over a year, and I use it often in my pellet grill, smoker, and oven. I find it to be very accurate- much better than the probes my pellet grill came with. I would say save the manual because mine just lost synchronicity with each other and it was an easy fix, but I did need to download the manual from thermpro to figure it out. having 2 probes is great because I often have chicken breasts or steaks of different sizes and I can put one in each to get a better idea of when the meat needs to be taken off at different times.

  61. Amazon Customer

    this is an awesome product , accurate and easy to use . I can be in the house preparing other items while my temp gauge lets me know when food is ready or a drop or increase in temps in the grill . This is a must have item for any BBQ / out door or indoor cooking

  62. jimz

    Very accurate (I tested with boiling water). I couldn’t imagine running my smoker without a dual-probe thermometer, as the dome temp is not useful. I’ve been using this all summer and it’s holding up great. Really like that it has “pre-set” options with the USDA recommendations for internal temperate, with a “custom” option so that I’m not bound to just those. My only criticism is a fairly big one though… the alarm sounds when you hit the temperature you specify, which is perfect for the probe in the meat. But for the probe clipped to the grate (with the setting of “BBQ”), that means the alarm goes off nearly continuously as the temperature hovers around my target temp. It’s also silent if the temperature spikes or if the fire goes out completely. The behavior should be that if the probe is set to BBQ, then only sound an alarm if the temperature falls out of a range around that temperature. As it is now, I still need to set hourly alarms for those overnight smokes to see if the grill is holding temperature. And I get frequent alarms waking me up as the temperature drifts around the target temp. If I found a similar device with proper behavior for the probe clipped to the grate, I would ditch this in favor of that device. If this device supports such a function, I have not been able to figure out how to make that happen (it should be the default for settings of BBQ) and it is not adequately explained in the manual.And while I’m at it, it would be cool to have a feature where if the temperature in the meat has stalled (like it tends to do with brisket and port butt), signal an alarm. After all, it’s just software.

  63. Debba

    Anything that keeps me from opening the door to the smoker is a good product. I did ribs and a pork butt and it was nice to be able to bring both of them to exact temperatures, as opposed to guessing and hand testing if they were done. Generally speaking it was reasonably easy to use, although there are a couple of things I need to go back and figure out, such as the automatic settings for various meets. I think it was well worth my money with the dual probes.
