We hope you have loved owning and using your ThermoWorks ThermoPop®. Many people tell us it can be a life-changing experience to start paying attention to the temperatures of their food with a fast and accurate instrument like the ThermoPop in their hands. Nothing has more of an impact on the quality and safety of food than the careful control of temperature. Arguably, little else has as much impact on the quality of your life than the quality and safety of your food.
3 reasons why now is the time to upgrade to a Thermapen:
- Thermapens® use a professional-grade thermocouple sensor, rather than the more common thermistor sensor in your ThermoPop. Thermocouples are faster and more accurate than thermistors:
|Accuracy||±0.7°F (0.4°C)||±2°F (1°C)|
|Response Time||2-3 seconds||3-4 seconds|
Your Thermapen actually comes with a NIST-traceable calibration certificate certifying its performance.
Thermocouples are also more resistant to both physical and thermal shock. That means that if you drop your thermometer (or touch the probe tip to a flame or coal) your ThermoPop is much more likely to be damaged than your Thermapen. And if your Thermapen is damaged…
- Thermapens can be recalibrated and repaired. While both products carry our full 2-year warranty against defects in either components or workmanship, only the Thermapen can be inexpensively recalibrated and repaired following that warranty period (just contact our technical support team).
- Thermapens have a folding probe. This little innovation not only makes the Thermapen remarkably convenient to store and use, it also means the probe is much less likely to be bent or broken while not in use. You can even buy a magnetic heat and shock-resistant silicone boot for your Thermapen. Thermapens last and last. It’s a one-time investment that pays dividends for years to come.
So don’t delay. Give your trusty ThermoPop to someone who will love it as much as you have, and upgrade to a Thermapen today. It’s time to find out what everyone is raving about!
