Super-Fast and Accurate: 2-3 second readings with ±0.7°F accuracy
With full readings in just 2-3 seconds, Thermapen Mk4 is the world’s best in speed and accuracy.
Waterproof to IP67: Water-tight seals
Thermapen Mk4 is built to survive in the busiest and messiest of kitchens.
Intelligent Backlight: For late night use
The Thermapen Mk4 display automatically illuminates in low light conditions and when you cover the sensor window.
Patented Auto-Rotating Display: Intuitively turns right-side up
No matter which way you flip your Thermapen Mk4, it will always display the temperature right-side up.
Motion-Sensing Sleep & Wake Mode: Intuitively turns on and off
It’s ready to use as soon as you pick it up, and turns off when you set it down, preserving battery life.
- High accuracy to ±0.7°F (±0.4°C)
- Includes NIST-Traceable calibration certificate with test data
- Foldaway thermocouple probe protects probe when not in use
- Use in either hand, display rotates for best viewing angle
- Includes Biomaster silver ion technology to reduce microbial growth
- 3,000 hour battery life (AAA Battery)
- Display temps in °C or °F
With full readings in only 2 to 3 seconds, the Super-Fast® Thermapen is the world’s best in speed and accuracy. Advanced technology makes Thermapen Mk4 even more intuitive than previous models. Hold it in any direction and the display automatically rotates right-side-up so you can read it in any position—in either hand, straight up or down; read temperatures without cocking your head.
A great tool for achieving that perfect meat temperature for a medium rare steak on your grill.
The Mk4 knows when it’s dark and turns on the backlight for you, making it easy to read at dusk or in complete darkness with maximum battery life. Or, just touch the sensor window anytime with your finger and the display lights up. Leave the probe open and the Mk4 stays on while you use it. Set it down, and Sleep Mode saves battery power. Pick the Mk4 up, and it turns on again instantly. Close the probe when you’re done cooking and the unit stays off for storage. High-tech, intuitive, fast and accurate.

Available in Multiple Colors
Originally, we manufactured the Thermapen in gray only. Later we added all the food-safety color-coding versions. Many people in the food industry use color coding to prevent cross contamination by dedicating tools to specific food products. That way, a knife, cutting board or thermometer that is used for say, raw poultry, won’t end up contaminating fresh vegetables like salad greens.
That was the reason we did multiple colors for the Thermapen. Of course most people buy a color variety simply according to personal preference. Even in commercial applications it seems most people buy colors so they can quickly tell who belongs to which Thermapen (blue is Fred’s, yellow is Cathy’s, etc…)
In 2006 we added black and orange which weren’t even on the color coding system. If you have a color preference that we don’t make yet, email us and we’ll keep track of your vote.
Standard Color Code:
Red = raw meat, raw beef and pork.
Blue = raw seafood
Yellow = raw poultry
Green = produce
White = dairy or bakery items
What is Biomaster?
Biomaster is a silver-based antimicrobial additive that is molded directly into the plastic housing that becomes an integral part of the product to prevent bacteria growth on its surface. The controlled release of the active ingredient provides maximum antimicrobial protection for the life of the product. When bacteria come into contact with a Biomaster protected surface, the silver ions prevent them from growing, producing energy or replicating, therefore they die, inhibiting degradation, discoloration or odors. Biomaster is an additional line of defense between cleanings.*
*Biomaster does not protect the user from disease causing organisms and is not a substitute for good hygiene and/or cleaning.
