The Thermapen’s newest iteration is a combination of two high quality thermometers into one high-tech tool. First it takes the incredible speed and accuracy of the Thermapen Mk4 probe and then adds an infrared sensor currently on the leading edge of surface temperature measurement.

Housed in a robust ABS case containing ‘Biomaster’ additive which reduces bacterial growth, the Thermapen IR incorporates a motion-sensing sleep mode (penetration probe only) which automatically turns the instrument on/off when set down or picked up, maximizing battery life.

Infrared thermometer
Simply aim the infrared thermometer at the target and press the scan button to display the surface temperature. Please Note: the infrared non-contact function will only measure when the probe is in the closed position.

The Thermapen IR thermometer incorporates a max/min temperature function accessed via the mode button (IR only). The distance to target ratio is 5:1, therefore the thermometer should be positioned as close to the target as possible. The default emissivity is 0.95 but can be adjusted between 0.1 and 1.0, if required via the mode button.

Penetration probe
Alternatively, it is possible to take liquid or semi-solid product temperatures using the reduced tip, stainless steel penetration probe (Ø3.3 x 110 mm). The probe conveniently folds back through 180° into the side of the instrument when not in use.


  • Measures surface, liquid and semi-solid temperatures
  • Free traceable certificate of calibration
  • Target distance/diameter ratio 5:1
  • Automatic 360° rotating display
  • Motion-sensing sleep mode
  • Adjustable emissivity



With care, your new IR Themapen should give many years of reliable service. The Manufacturer extends a 2 Year Warranty on the device and a 6 Month Warranty on the Probe. It is important to remember that the probe is a very sensitive instrument. Things that can damage it include, pushing it into frozen meat or actually holding the tip of the probe on the grill surface.  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.


Comparison between Thermapen MK4 –Thermapen IR Thermometer


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
