Fast Waterproof Thin Probe Thermometer – Side Display
This model features a very thin probe leaving no noticeable hole in your bread.

Where most “instant” read thermometers take 20-30 seconds to reach a true temperature reading, this one takes about 6-8 seconds.
When you’re checking to see if your bread is done, waiting 20-30 seconds for your “instant” read thermometer to reach a true reading seems like an eternity. To minimize heat loss from oven and food, you want an accurate reading quickly.
