Thermoworks just announced the release of the new Thermapen Mk4 (Mark 4) earlier today. The new Thermapen boasts a number of great improvements and features including – auto rotating display, auto off with intelligent sleep and wake modes, intelligent backlight -standard, 3,000 hour battery life (now uses easy to find AAA batteries!), 3 second read times, accuracy to +- .7 deg F and… Waterproof! to IP66/67 standard.
Here’s a First Look at this new thermometer…
Side by side next to the previous version – now known as the Classic Thermapen [discounted while supplies last]
The Mk4 has some additional heft. Here it is on my American Weigh Gram Scale. The previous version weighed 94.63 grams. The Mk4 comes in at 111.42 grams. About 17 grams heavier. My guess is that AAA batteries make up most of that difference.
Here’s the Mk4 in an ice water bath in my newer Klean Kanteen Vacuum Insulated Growler. This shows a couple things – First, it is reading 32 deg F. Yay! Second, you can see the rotating display in action.
The previous version of Thermapen [Review] is still available (at a significant discount) while supplies last.
Classic Thermapen – $79
Thank you to ThermoWorks for providing me with a pre-release Thermapen Mk4 for this First Looks post an an eventual full review.
