9.0/10

Pros

  • Fast and responsive temperature
  • The two included probes have long cables
  • Bluetooth connectivity that allows integration with a simple-to-use app
  • Alarms can be set easily in the app

Cons

  • Not advertised as being completely weatherproof (however, in my testing, it still worked after being out in heavy rain)

The Sendowtek Barbecue Thermometer is a fantastic bit of kit for any home cook. I’m usually the sort of person to pick the ‘best’ gadget, regardless of price, but for once I’m happy I decided to purchase the affordable option as it does everything I need, such as giving quick and accurate temperatures and providing wireless connectivity, but doesn’t break the bank. After a few cooks, I already have no doubt that it’s going to last a long while.

The Sendowtek Barbecue Thermometer offers a more affordable option for anyone needing a dual-probe, wireless meat thermometer. Although not quite established as the leading brands, it was difficult for me to ignore the price and amount of 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon.

The box contained what you see above, along with two AAA batteries. Once powered on, linking the unit to your phone simply requires a download of the ‘easyBBQ’ app and turning on bluetooth.

The backlight helps in darker situations and also flashes rapidly when the temperature reaches a number that you specify via the app.

The thermometer works exactly how you’d expect it to – there are 6 sockets (3 on each side) for the probes to be inserted into and inserting the included pair will give you a rolling display of both temperatures. The display on the app is very clear and allows you to set alarms for temperature limits (notifying you when the temperature reaches a certain point) and temperature ranges (notifying you when the temperature falls out of a certain range).

The probes themselves seemed to be accurate and provided fast readings. I was pleased to see that they also had fairly long cables, meaning that routing them through the lid of my kettle barbecue wasn’t a problem at all.

Aside from ‘doing what it says on the tin’, the thermometer also features a kickstand, a clip to attach it to your cooker of choice and stood up well to the downpour of rain I experienced midway through my first cook.

Conclusion

The Sendowtek Barbecue Thermometer is a fantastic bit of kit for any home cook. I’m usually the sort of person to pick the ‘best’ gadget, regardless of price, but for once I’m happy I decided to purchase the affordable option as it does everything I need, such as giving quick and accurate temperatures and providing wireless connectivity, but doesn’t break the bank. After a few cooks, I have no doubt that it’s going to last a long while.
