Cuisinart Wireless Grill Thermometer
In the past, the only ways to determine a steak’s temperature while cooking were to eyeball it, use an old-fashioned analog thermometer, or to ask the cut of meat very, very nicely. Cuisinart has brought barbecuing to the next level with their advanced wireless thermometer. Monitoring your meal is as easy as inserting a probe, which then connects to its base with a cord. Wireless functionality comes into play with the set’s handheld component. With it backyard chefs can select the type of meat they’re cooking, how they’d like it cooked (rare to well-done), and the desired temperature. An alarm alerts users when that temperature has been reached, and a built-in timer and flashlight also come in handy come nighttime.

After vacationing in France in the early 1970s, retired physicist Carl Sontheimer was inspired to go back to work. He’d seen a new gadget—a mechanized food processor for restaurants—and wanted to retool it for passionate home cooks like himself. His scaled down version of the machine was efficient and versatile, allowing users to mix eggs into puff pastry in as little as 15 seconds, as opposed to 15 minutes manually. Immediately, revered chefs including Julia Child, Jacques Pépin, and James Beard applauded the invention, and Beard even wrote an entire cookbook dedicated to the machine. Decades later, Cuisinart’s line of innovative products ranges from waffle makers and rice cookers to eco-friendly nonstick pans.
