Today we're kicking off a weekly product highlight here on the blog. There are hundreds ofexcellent barbecue products and accessories on the market today, so we thought we'd use this space to talk about our favorite ones and explain why they are a worthwhile investment.
This week we're talking about the Maverick PT-75 Instant-Read Thermometer, Maverick's newest instant-read probe thermometer released in 2017.
One of the most important tools for a barbecue enthusiast to invest in is an instant-read probe thermometer. You can pick up some pretty decent ones for $30, but if you plan to do a lot of cooking, you really should think about a high quality folding thermometer such as the PT-75.
The PT-75 is a solid investment in quality, which is important when you want a dependable thermometer that can hold up against an occasional drop when you're rushing around the pit. Once you make the investment, you'll never regret it.
What we like about this thermometer is it's size and sleek design and the fact that it only runs at $69.99 as opposed to its competitor, the Thermapen Mk4 from ThermoWorks with a price tag of $99.99.
We could get technical about the accuracy and speed, but any thermometer in this price range will be sure to give you excellent readings. The PT-75 comes with a lighted display for cooking after the sun goes down, and a timer that starts automatically when you fold in the probe.
AmazingRibs.com gave the PT-75 a Gold Medal, and once you're holding the PT-75 in your hand, you'll understand why. Here is an excerpt from their review:
"The PT-75 is comfortable to use, especially for lefties. The accuracy is good and the response times are excellent. Readability is better than most. Overall, we give this unit a Gold Medal for design, execution and ease of use."
You can purchase the Maverick PT-75 in our online store and have it shipped to you or stop by our retail store during hours to avoid shipping cost and start using it immediately!
