Inkbird or ThermoPro.


Recommended Posts

We have a couple of meat thermometers that we've used in the kitchen for a long time, as they may not be that accurate these days...I think it's time to take a step up the ladder.

We're in the market for a digital one but not sure which to choose,  I know the "inkbird" name from my brewing hobby.  I have a couple of fermentation fridges that are run via pid.

Last weekend when we did the gammon and fattie we only had the one probe to use and it was a bit of a PITA.  ?

It really depends on the model you go for.

The IBT-2X (£20) will do the job however the information on the unit itself is limited. I have one and use it but it isn't my favourite. The Bluetooth app gives you more information but it has a limited range.

The Inkbird IRF-2S (£45) has a dedicated remote unit that has a range of ~300 m. This is similar to thermometers like the Maverick ET-732/733 (£45/£55) which I have used for many years and have been very pleased with.

The Thermopro TP20 (£35) is also an ET-732/33 like thermometer however the range of the remote is less - ~100m. This is still a good distance

My go-to thermometer is now the Smoke Wireless Thermometer from ETI - though it is a little more expensive (£78) it is easy to use and configure and has nice nice loud alarms. 

Whichever one you buy will do the job so it is really dependent on how much you want to pay...

I won a two probe inkbird in a recipe competition with my smoked duck and plantain . I already have a 6probe version . But now have spare for kettle I guess . I like the inkbird . Just wish it was waterproof design . But I stick it in ziplocks

@wade- just looking at an older post about the Ibt2x. When you said that the information on the unit is limited, I’m just wondering what other info is available on more expensive thermometers that aren’t on the ibt2x? Thanks
