Meater Block comes with four smart meat thermometers to help you cook your food perfect everytime.


Here is a gift idea for moms who like to cook or BBQ: a smart meat thermometer. For those who don't know what a smart meat thermometer is, it's a cooking device that uses Bluetooth or Wi-Fi to transmit food temperature to a smartphone or other device. This allows you to monitor the temperature of your food from anywhere in your home without constantly checking on it in the oven or on the grill.

Smart meat thermometers typically have a long probe that you insert into the food and a receiver that you place near the oven or grill. The receiver then sends the temperature data to your smartphone or other device. Some smart meat thermometers also have features like alarms that will notify you when your food has reached a specific temperature or timers that will help you cook your food perfectly every time.

We have tested many of these devices, and you can read all about the best smart thermometers here. And we would recommend any of the ones below:

  • Meater Plus: a smart cooking thermometer in a wooden block that acts as a holder and charging station. It usually costs $99.99 but is available on Amazon for 20% off. Buy on Amazon
  • Meater Block: This comes with 4X Meater Plus probes and a wooden charging station with an MSRP of $349.95. You also get a bunch of accessories that are bundled together if you buy them on their site. You can also buy Meater Plus on Amazon, which offers 14% off. Buy on Amazon
