Now NSF-Certified, ThermoPop 2 Has aLarger, Easy-to-Read 1¼” Diameter Display with Big, Bold Digits, Accurate to ±1°F with a Certificate of Traceability to National Standards,Now Fully Waterproof,While Maintaining a Consumer-Friendly Price

American Fork, Utah, Sept. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThermoWorks, purveyor of professional temperature tools to the world’s top commercial kitchens and discerning home cooks and home of the world-famous Thermapen® announced today the release of ThermoPop 2, a significant upgrade to the critically acclaimed ThermoPop digital instant-read thermometer. ThermoPop 2 comes with the same molded-in seals, easy-grip head, and bright button-activated backlight of the original ThermoPop. But it has a completely redesigned and patented display that automatically rotates in 90° increments depending upon the orientation of the unit, so you can hold it in either your left or right hand in any position—even upside-down—and the display will always be right-side up. The display face is also now 40% larger in diameter and easier to read, with big, bold digits that can be read at a glance from near or far, all while boasting a 20% slimmer profile

In addition, ThermoPop 2 delivers faster temperature readings (now 2-3 seconds for a full reading) and higher accuracy (±1°F). It is also now fully waterproof, with an IP rating of 67, and features easy one-button simplicity, a 2-year warranty, and a NIST-traceable certificate with test data verifying the accuracy of each individual unit. All of these improvements help ThermoPop 2 provide a better temperature measurement experience for home cooks and commercial chefs alike when they are cooking their favorite foods and making critical decisions in the kitchen about doneness or verifying holding temperatures on the line.

A New Era for Inexpensive Instant-Read Thermometers

“With consumers, restaurants, and food processing operations thinking more about doing more with less these days, the launch of ThermoPop 2 couldn’t be more timely,” says Randy Owen, Founder and CEO at ThermoWorks. “ThermoPop has been so popular due to its unique form factor, and we’ve found a way to extend that and deliver a lot more value at the same low price point as the original. The redesigned display is a game-changer. We’ve doubled both the speed and the accuracy and made it more durable, so chefs will be more efficient.”

Building on the Acclaim of the Original ThermoPop

A decade ago, ThermoPop shook up the instant-read marketplace with its performance and innovative lollipop-shaped design that made it so easy to grab and hold. Some of the many accolades ThermoPop has garnered over the years include “Best Inexpensive Digital Thermometer” by Cook’s Illustrated/America’s Test Kitchen, “Best Instant-Read Thermometer” by Wirecutter/New York Times, and “Easiest-to-Use Thermometer” by the editors at Good Housekeeping.

  • Backlit Display at the push of button for low light conditions like the back of the oven or outdoor grilling in the evening
  • Waterproof Rating IP67 for protection against spills, splashes, and even full immersion in water
