No more overdone roasts. The iDevices Kitchen Thermometer keeps tabs on meat as it’s cooking so you don’t have to.
The thermometer measures the temperature of the meat and sends that information via Bluetooth to your smartphone or tablet up to 150 feet away. The app alerts you when the meat has reached the desired temperature.
You can choose preset temperatures for various foods and levels of doneness, or you can set a customized temperature.
The app currently is available for certain models of the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. An Android version will be released this year.
The thermometer has two probes to monitor two different dishes. The Kitchen Thermometermini, with only one probe, is expected to be available in June.
The iDevices Kitchen Thermometer can be ordered for $79.99 at http://store.idevicesinc.com. Shipping is extra.
