Talking Grill Thermometer


Why is it that everything seems to be talking these days but nothing listens?

I want to dictate bookofjoe and voice dial my phone and that's just for starters —€” but here we are in mid-2008 and it might as well be 1988 when it comes to useful stuff like that.

Meanwhile, there's this:

    Talking Grill Thermometer

    Wireless digital indicator monitors your meal's progress and lets you know when it's time to eat

    Take the guesswork out of grilling with this ingenious talking thermometer.

    Program your choice of entrée and desired level of doneness —€” the wireless digital indicator monitors your meal's progress and lets you know when food is done to perfection.

    Wirelessly transmits exact temperature readings and audible alerts from the probe to an untethered handset from up to 330 feet away, allowing confident remote tracking of cooking progress.

    Handset requires two AA batteries and sensor requires two AAA batteries (all included).

    Detachable stainless-steel probe for easy cleaning.

    2.25"L x 1.5"W x 5.5"H.


    • Levels of doneness and their corresponding target temperatures are shown, ensuring meats are cooked to preference

    • Speaks in five languages with corresponding display (English, Spanish, German, French, Danish)

    • Once a program is selected, handset verbally signals "Almost ready," "Ready" and "Out of range"

    • LCD screen shows four levels of doneness — rare, medium rare, medium, and well done

    • Handset has 8 programs — beef, lamb, veal, hamburger, pork, turkey, chicken, and fish

    • Stainless steel probe detaches from sensor for easy cleaning

    • Handset and sensor bodies wipe clean with damp cloth

    • Alarm sounds when the target temperature is reached

    • Senses exact temperatures between 32°F and 572°F


    • Handset with digital LCD screen and table stand

    • 7" stainless steel probe with 3.5' cord

    • 2 AA handset batteries

    • 2 AAA sensor batteries

    • Wireless sensor

    • Belt clip



Might be a way to learn a new language on the cheap.
