If your father is a tech lover and a wannabe chef, the Meater+ will give him the tools to achieve perfectly cooked meat every single time.
Sat within a real wood block you will find the Meater+ probe, a stainless steel device packed with sensors that allow you to perfect any type of meat. Whether you are looking to cook steak, chicken, salmon on either the oven, BBQ or on the stove the Meater+ probe will allow you to keep track of how well cooked your food of choice is. The probe slips neatly into the meat of choice and gives a real time representation of inner temperature via the free Meater smartphone app.
But that’s not all, the app is full of pre-set food types, which makes cooking a doddle. For example, pick sirloin steak in the app, the Meater+ will then use its ambient and inner temperature sensors to judge how long your meat will take to cook. The ambient sensor tracks how hot it is outside the meat and this combines with the inner sensor to check your food is cooked to spec. This means that no matter where you are cooking, the Meater+ adapts to surroundings, gives you the correct time required to cook and results are perfect each time.
The Meater+ comes with an astonishing range, when you compare it to previous models. In fact, the original model has a range of 10 foot when inside a smoker, whereas the Meater+ has a whopping range of 165 feet. This means you can easily put your feet up away from the BBQ or even head inside.
Plus, the Meater+ connects to Alexa, for the ultimate in-home integration.
