Pros / A second probe is included with this digital grill thermometer.
Cons / The Weber Style Wireless Thermometer doesn't have as wide a temperature range as other thermometers.
Verdict / The Weber Style Wireless Thermometer isn't a Bluetooth-smart thermometer; however, it has smart features, like built-in temperature presets and cooking times. Since it has a wireless receiver, it frees you from your grill.
Weber’s Style Wireless Thermometer is a basic digital grilling thermometer that is easy to use. It has a docking station to hold a wireless receiver, and you don’t have to fuss with pairing it to a smartphone or tablet. Just insert the 5.75-inch probe, which is connected to the base station, into your meat, and the thermometer will do the rest.
This digital BBQ thermometer allows you to get a reading without having to be tied to your grill. It includes a wireless receiver that can be used from 250 feet away. The receiver's display has large numbers that are easy to read. The display is also illuminated, making it possible to read it when night grilling. The body of the thermometer only has a few buttons – one for power, up and down arrows to scroll through menus, a button to switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius, and another to set alarms.
We like that this grill thermometer supports two probes, both of which are included. Several manufacturers require you to purchase probes separately for around $20 extra. Weber's probe can sense temperatures from 32 degrees up to 392 degrees Fahrenheit. It doesn't register as wide of a range of temperatures as other thermometers, but this shouldn't be a problem for most cooks.
This digital grill thermometer is powered by two AA batteries that can be easily replaced. Unfortunately, the thermometer doesn't feature an automatic shutoff feature, so if you accidentally leave the BBQ thermometer powered on, it will die. The thermometer comes with pre-programmed temperatures and standard cooking times set by the USDA, which is a nice touch. You can select from lamb, chicken, beef, pork, seafood, turkey and veal.
Weber offers a two-year warranty for its Style Wireless thermometer; which is twice as long as several other thermometers. Weber offers telephone and email support, or you can find FAQs online.
