The new Pro-Surface Thermapen® thermometer measures more accurately than an infrared thermometer the temperature of grills, cooktops, hotplates, and other surfaces. Using an using an infrared, you need to make adjustments for emissivity and distance. With a Pro-Surface Thermapen® you simply open the probe and take the reading – the pivoting probe and swivel tip ensure perfect surface contact and high accurate measurement.

The Pro-Surface Thermapen uses the same tip as the popular bell surface probe. The tip of the probe pivots so the flat base of the sensor maintains solid contact with the surface being measured. The unit can tilt slightly at the base of the probe shaft so the display can easily be read. It has a range of -49.9 to 299.9°C and a user-selectable resolution of 0.1° or 1° and it is supplied with a FREE traceable calibration certificate. The Pro Surface Thermapen is calibrated as a system for better accuracy than meter and probe combinations.

The Thermapen® body is splash-resistant, designed for industrial use and has no buttons to press. Swing open the probe and it’s on – close it and it’s off. It uses no cables and the probe’s fold away action offers protection when not in and eliminates the need for replacement probe purchases. For high temperature use you can order a protective silicone rubber boot for added thermal and drop protection. You can customise your Thermapen even further using the micro switches in the battery compartment.

With care, your new Thermapen should give many years of reliable service. Please read ETI’s  Product Guarantee Terms below. In the event of a Warranty Claim, please contact The Perfect Steak Company first. We will advise how best to proceed. Important additional information is also shown on our Warranty’s Page.

The Product Guarantee does not cover damage caused by fair wear and tear, abnormal storage conditions, incorrect use, accidental misuse, abuse, neglect, misapplication or modification or use with non-ETI Hardware or Software.



Please be advised that some models of induction cooktops can create a temporary interference with digital electronic thermometers when they are used nearby. The amount of interference and the best solution will depend on the model of the cooktop.

Here are some solutions that should get a reading:

  • Remove food from the cooktop to take a quick reading away from the magnetic field
  • Remove the pan from the cooktop which will break the magnetic field
  • Briefly turn off the induction cooktop during the reading

What makes the Thermapen so fast compared to other thermometers?

The main reason is the professional thermocouple technology that we use instead of mass-produced thermistor technology. Thermocouples are recommended by the most food standards agencies for measurement of cooked meat products and thin portions. We also use a reduced-diameter needle tip on the probe. Comparable professional meters cost £140 to £300 for the electronics and a similar probe! 

How long should my Thermapen's batteries last?

Pro-Surface Thermapen 3 batteries are rated for 1,500 hours of use. In the battery compartment you can enable and disable the auto-off feature. The auto-off feature will extend the life of the batteries. See your owner's manual for details.

Will the Thermapen tell me when my meat is done?

Not exactly. Instead it (very quickly) tells you the actual temperature and you decide if that is "done". We can give you the guidelines for food safety but you should consult your favorite cookbooks, TV shows and recipes for advice not only on safe temperatures but the best cooking temperatures for flavour and texture. Also remember that individual preference is very important.

Where should I place the probe tip to see if it's cooked?

When testing if your meat is cooked, the coldest part will be the very center of the thickest portion. With larger foods, you can take quick readings with your thermometer in several locations to verify that the entire portion is done. If you are chilling a food, the center of the thickest part will be the last to cool.  Penetrate the food you are checking with the probe and place the very tip of the probe where you want to measure.

I've seen cheaper thermometers, why pay more for a Thermapen?

In use there's a big difference. Don't take our word for it. Check our reviews to read the many reasons written by others. Cheaper thermometers are limited by the technology that they use. These can be mass produced for just a few pennies to a few pounds. On the other hand, the Thermapen is hand-assembled and hand-tested in the UK and uses a professional thermocouple circuit design. This design costs more to make than cheaper, less capable thermometers.
