Another thing I really don’t need but totally want, regardless

iphone meat thermometer

Don’t you ust love how the little orange loop/handle matched the orange part of the app of the phone? Photo by Mark Weinberg for Food52.

I wouldn’t say that I’m against tech stuff per se, but I do tend toward the vintage, handmade, analogue variety when I can get my hands on it. Hence the rotary phone, the vinyl LP’s, the hand stitched laptop sleeve… But sometimes you have to hand it to the super modern digital version of a thing. This range thermomenter that hooks up to your iPhone (or iPad) and gives you accurate temperatures, tells you when your roast (or hard candy, or home brewed beer) is ready to come out of the oven, and looks cute in the bargain is one of those exceptions to my rule.

You can even hook it up to your iPad in the kitchen and then have it send alerts to your iPhone so you don’t have to keep coming back to the oven to check the meat.

I would already own this if I didn’t have, oh, 4 or 5 oven thermometers in our kitchen drawer already. Though to be honest, I’m just one yard sale away from getting rid of all of them to make room for this baby…

    I would recommend the Thermapen:

    My parents have one and it has completely revolutionized cooking for me. Anything to do with meat is so so much easier now. I got one for my wedding and it’s my favorite gift to buy people because it’s life changing. They use them on Great British Baking Show and the quality is top notch!
