Great Tool / Must Have for Grill Masters
Tried a recipe for Bacon-Wrapped Tenderloin this weekend. The recipe called for the use of an instant read thermometer to ensure proper internal temperature of the meat. I started to purchase the basic $10 Weber thermometer, then I saw this on the shelf.
The iGrill Mini rocks! Had no idea how convenient it would be to have a device that could accurately monitor the internal temp of meat on the grill, and display it on your iPhone.
Setup was a little tricky, but I consider that to be "operator error" on my part. You need to download the Weber iGrill app - not the iDevices app in the instructions. Once I did that, it paired quickly.
Was able to entertain at a dinner party, all while monitoring the temp of the tenderloins while they were on the grill. Quick glance at my phone showed me everything I need to know. Looks like there are many features on the app, but have to say that the ability to monitor what's going on under the lid by quickly glancing at my phone is worth the price of admission.
Magnetic base works great. Braided cable sheath provides protection, and love the rubber grip for removing the probe when it's hot.
A great product. Can't go wrong with this one!
Hi Eric! Thanks for your review. We apologize for the initial confusion with the apps, but are happy to hear that you were able to get connected. Enjoy your iGrill Mini!
