Thermoworks ThermaPop Generation 2 Digital Thermometer: A Must-Have BBQ & Kitchen Tool

ThermoWorks BBQ Meat Thermometers at Barbecues Galore
The Thermoworks Thermopop Generation 2 is a digital thermometer that has taken countless average Canadian home cooks to Canada's best chefs.That being said, we already know the questions you have for us. We'll be answering why ThermoWorks is such a great brand, what makes the Generation 2 ThermoPop better than the first model, and list out the technical specifications at the bottom.

Why is ThermoWorks such a great brand?

ThermoWorks is a leading company in the kitchen and meat thermometer industry, known for manufacturing high-quality and reliable products. Their commitment to making precise thermometers at reasonable prices has allowed them to push the metaphorical  "technologically advanced" envelope and improve with every thermometer they make. 

What makes the ThermoPop 2 better than the first model? 

Let's start with the most notable improvements and then go to the specifics. So, first and foremost, the screen on the ThermoPop 2 is 33.33% larger than the first generations display. this makes for the 360° rotating display even easier to read. The Thermopop 2 also has a waterproof rating of IP67, which means you can easily wash it by just running it right under your tap and scrubbing it with some soap. Of course, you won't have to worry about any spills or splashes while you cook either. 

Now let's get into the specifics we said we would. The first model ThermoPop had an impressive reading speed of 3-4 seconds, but now the ThermoPop 2 gives you a temperature in just 2-3 seconds. Despite being just a second quicker, just like in F1 racing, that one second means everything. That means your grill is open for less time, leaking less heat, and throwing off your cook less than it would have before.

Not only that, the ThermoPop 2 gives an improved accuracy with just ±1°F (±0.5°C). So, you can definitely be confident that your chicken or roast will never be over- or undercooked. Say "goodbye" to the "salmonella scaries."

 What are the salmonella scaries? Well it's a term we just coined and similar to the "Sunday scaries" or the anxiety or dread you feel on Sunday night due to knowing you have to go to work the next day. Similarly, one gets the "salmonella scaries" every time they cook poultry for people without being fully confident that it's not undercooked, because they don't have a proper meat thermometer.

NSF Certified, which means the ThermoPop 2 conforms to the requirements of NSF/ANSI 2 Food Equipment regulations.
