Review: Thermapen Thermometer Reads Temps Instantly

tempreading_cup_192.jpg
Using the Thermapen is quick and easy. Here we
are testing the temperature of a cup of pressed coffee
that requires a brew temp of 186-190F.  

Just open the probe and the Thermapen comes on. Close it and it shuts off. No buttons or switches to catch germs, confuse you and cause errors. We used our Thermapen (thanks to ThermoWorks for sending) over the past weekend to test various brew temperatures in our coffee makers to seek a perfect brew. Temp readings from the Thermapen were almost instant unlike our older kitchen thermometers, and we loved how easy it was to hold and put away.

81uTR4sauBL._AA1500_.jpg

This clip-on spoon rest for holding utensils above saucepans and stockpots means no more lost spoons. Made from durable metal and heat-resistant silicone, it clips right onto the side of the pot to keep your tasting spoon handy. It also keeps drips in the pot so stovetop stays clean, and the spoon rest is heat-resistant to 600 degrees F, and safe in the dishwasher.

ThermoWorks Thermapen Thermometer Arrives for Review

therma_pen_review.jpg

Thermoworks has sent us the Thermapen Thermometer to review, and we're very excited. We currently have a rather lackluster truly inaccurate thermometer. The Thermapen is fast - super fast they say, and we'll just have to be the judge over a week of cooking.

West Bend 2-3/4-Quart Iced-Tea Maker

41sdaxFGQuL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

We promise this will be our last iced tea maker for the foreseeable future, but we really liked the look and features of this iced tea maker as well. The West Bend Iced-tea maker with timed brewing and steeping settings has a reusable stainless-steel filter that works with both bagged and loose tea. It also features a brew-strength selector, removable sweetener chamber, and has a 2-3/4-quart plastic pitcher. The Auto shut-off will help make you not worry you left the iced tea maker on, and the drip tray for quick cleanup makes wanting to use it over and over an easy decision.

Oster 2-1/2-Quart Iced-Tea Maker

6157P5NS7vL._AA1000_.jpg

We thought we'd feature another iced tea maker as an alternative to yesterday's tea maker. This 2-1/2-quart iced-tea maker works with loose or bagged tea and has a really nice design. The water window in reservoir, and adjustable brew strength along with a permanent filter make this a tough iced tea offering to beat. There's a simple on/off button with power indicator light, and the iced teat maker has an auto shut-off for safety. The pitcher is also dishwasher safe.

41KJR5R2C7L._SL500_AA300_.jpg

All we really know is that it's February here at Kitchen Contraptions, and yes it's cold here in the Northeast, but we drink iced tea all year round. We also know for many people in the US and abroad it's summer or spring all year long - perfect for iced tea.

This slim, 2-quart pitcher fits in refrigerator door, and there's an adjustable brew-strength selector to get the iced tea in your flavor range. This iced tea maker will also make fresh-brewed iced tea from leaves or bags in under 10-minutes.
