Many smart wireless meat thermometers come with one or maybe two temperature sensors that are used to ensure you never overcook your meat. The MeatStick 4X is the first smart wireless meat thermometer with 4 sensors – one in the ceramic handle and three in its stainless-steel probe.

The MeatStick 4X uses its patented Dual-Shell design to allow the meat thermometer to withstand heat up to 572 degrees F and is dishwasher safe. It also connects to its free app via Bluetooth using the company’s Xtender technology. This technology can transmit a Bluetooth signal up to 650 feet outdoors or 164 feet inside. And if you want unlimited range, you can easily add MeatStick Wi-Fi Bridge which can link up to 8 sticks to the company’s cloud. This helps you see real-time temperatures from anywhere via the Internet.

The MeatStick 4X comes with a stick and a 4X charger. The cost is $124.99 and is available on the company site. Also, MeatStick 4X works with ovens, air fryers, stove tops, smokers, grills, sous vide, and even deep fryers.

Gornel Digital Wireless Meat Thermometer

Gornel is unlike the other smart wireless meat thermometers on our list. This smart device is more of a connected device that falls into the “digital wireless meat thermometer” category which has a lot more players. And it is for the cooks who don’t need that much guidance but want perfect meat cooking results.

Digital wireless meat thermometers don’t connect to your smartphone. They come with a digital display that guides you through the cooking process. Gornel’s meat thermometer comes with a “display host” that connects with the two supplied meat sensors or probes through a signal booster which is also included. This setup provides users with a 300-foot cooking range which is helpful if your BBQ setup is rather far from your home.

Since digital meat thermometers don’t connect to your smartphone, there are no apps to guide you through the cooking process. However, some digital meat thermometers do come with pre-programmed temperatures and functions to help you. Gornel has pre-programmed functions based on different meats. It can easily help cooks prepare beef, lamb, veal, turkey, pork, fish, and more. And works on ovens, grills, and smokers.

Gornel Digital Wireless Meat Thermometer costs $89.97 and is available on Amazon, Walmart, and eBay.
