This BBQ thermometer is capable of reading temperatures from 32–572 degrees Fahrenheit. We found it to be incredibly accurate when grilling four steaks. The manufacturer says it is accurate within two degrees Fahrenheit.

We had no issue grilling steaks of various levels of doneness. Since this digital grilling thermometer doesn't have built-in temperature presets, you'll need manually enter the temperatures that you don't want your meat to exceed. For instance, we cooked a rare, medium-rare, medium and medium-well steak at 125, 135, 145 and 155 degrees Fahrenheit, respectively. This grill thermometer isn't as fast as other ones, but it is very accurate. The receiver refreshes the temperature normally in 10–15 second increments. But if you just want an immediate reading, it takes slightly longer for the display to refresh.

Feature Set

The thermometer features a transmitter and wireless receiver. It doesn't require any smartphone pairing since the device has a separate receiver. You can easily fix the receiver to your belt or slip it in your pocket to monitor temperature changes. It has a wireless range of up to 300 feet, which allows you to be indoors while your food is grilling outdoors.

Some digital grill thermometer transmitters don't have a screen, but the Ivation Wireless BBQ thermometer does. The display for both the receiver and transmitter are illuminated, and the numbers are large and easy to read. Setting alerts and timers is a little complicated, but some other thermometers are much more difficult to set. We found it beneficial to read the instruction manual rather than attempt to figure things out by fiddling around with it.

This thermometer features two distinct modes: thermometer and timer mode. Thermometer mode displays only the temperature for both probes. You can set an alarm for when the thermometer reaches a certain temperature. Also, if you are using the second probe to monitor the temperature of your grill, you can to set limits the grill's temperature can't exceed. This monitoring feature comes in handy if you grill a lot and run out of propane. So if the grill is too cold, you are notified. For timer mode, the thermometer counts down until time runs out. Ivation allows you to set a count-up timer as well. When your meat reaches a certain temperature or a certain amount of time has passed, the unit loudly beeps. If you would rather have the unit display temperature in degrees Celsius, you toggle a switch so temperature is no longer displayed in degrees Fahrenheit.

Ivation's digital BBQ thermometer is water-resistant, so you are free to grill even if it's raining outside. However, the two included six-inch probes are not waterproof and need to be washed by hand with a slightly damp cloth.
