It’s okay that you haven’t developed the sixth sense of knowing exactly when your roast chicken is at 165 degrees, or when that rib roast hits perfect medium-rare — that’s why meat thermometers were dreamed up. Lavatools’ Javelin Pro Duo has been lauded as one of the most accurate available; it can take a read of a stabilized temperature in just two to three seconds. The Javelin Pro Duo beeps when that temperature is found, and it will hold that number on its bright LCD — which is viewable from any angle and rotates so that the numbers are always right-side-up — for several seconds. That allows you to remove the device from the food before reading the screen without affecting the final temperature readout (no more awkward head tilting).
A tool this smart is normally pricey, for meat thermometers, but right now it’s marked down 33 percent to just $30.
