Purchase & Review: iGrill

Posted: 8th September 2011 by beakerbuys-admin in iPhone Applications, Kitchen Appliances/Equipment

My wife got me the iGrill for my birthday.

I BBQ and grill quite a lot, so having a remote thermometer that reports/interfaces remotely via Bluetooth to my iPhone/iPad sounded like a geek’s dream.

Ultimately, it’s useful, fun and and easy to use.  The downside is that it’s constantly off by 10-12 degrees when measured against my infrared and calibrated direct-probe thermometers.

This has led to undercooked and overcooked meat — not fun on either end of the spectrum.

Overall, with this in mind, I set my temperature thresholds with this buffer in mind for grilling.

For BBQ, it’s far more useful because I can use one of the probes for the meat temp and the other for the internal BBQ temp…and watch for variability.  THIS is what I find it very useful for, even with the inaccuracy.

All told, I find it a useful — if not inaccurate — tool.
